The Vice president of India, Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu has said that inclusive economic growth is central to development. He was addressing the inaugural session of the Entrepreneurs’ Organisation Global University Conference 2017, held  in Hyderabad . The Telangana  Minister for IT, Municipal Administration & Urban Development, Mr. K.T. Rama Rao, the Director of Entrepreneurs Organizations Hyderabad Global University- Dr. Luis Chasi and other dignitaries were present.
The Vice President said that the government was focusing more on creating jobs, than seeking jobs. He further said that to achieve Sustainable Development goals, inequalities in opportunities must be removed. The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi has given the mantra – “Reform, Perform and Transform” to foster faster development, he added.
The Vice President said that the theme of this conference is ‘Jugaad’ or what we call ‘improvisation’ and we have to create more opportunities with the scarce resources. He dwelt upon certain examples such as building of the ‘Rama Setu’ by Sri Rama to cross over to Lanka. He also mentioned the design of the Nano car, the Dabbawallahs of Mumbai who deliver 2 lakh lunch boxes daily and Shri Sonam Wangchuck’s ice stupas or artificial glaciers in Ladakh that provide water to farmers when they need it most.
Mr Venkaiah Naidu said along with governmental initiatives, the youth must be made equipped to take on challenges and access emerging opportunities.“Youth must be given the necessary motivation and mentored. They must be given access to technical and financial resources and opportunity to acquire new skills and get updated,“ he emphasized. The Vice President said that ‘Skill India’, ‘Start up India’ and ‘Make in India’ initiatives will nurture entrepreneurship in the country. There will be no red tape, only red carpet, for investors, he said in a lighter vein. He further said that both Demonetisation and implementation of Goods and Service Tax (GST) would augur well for the country in future. These revolutionary steps would bring more revenue for the government, which can be spent on welfare programmes, he added.
