Here are the highlights of his speech at the summit:

  • India is not only going to be cooperative federalism but also a competitive federalism.
  • Those who earlier believed in conventional model of economy, now believe in the virtue of reform, change, attracting investment.
  • Many of our competing economies are facing extremely serious challenges.
  • In an integrated economy, a large number of these challenges and difficulties have spilled over into our system as well.
  • Therefore, because of the integration of global economy, what happens in China, what happens to oil prices..impact our markets too.
  • After Start Up India, we are going to launch Stand Up India.
  • Stand Up India is available to only two sections of society – women and the SC and ST entrepreneurs.
  • Every public and private sector bank, each branch in the country has to fund one SC, ST and one woman entrepreneur.
  • These circumstances can be converted in India as an opportunity.
  • Many of the factors adversely impacting the world, do not necessarily affect us.
  • The low oil and commodity price regime substantially suits us.
