The Union Minister of Commerce & Industry Piyush Goyal on Monday (27 September) said that the ‘Rules of Business’ have to be the same for all the stakeholders.
Addressing the 'Vanijya Saptah Samapan Samaroh', organised by the Federation of Indian Export Organisations (FIEO), Goyal said, “Irrespective of whether they are big or small business houses, or where they are from or any other differentiating factor, we would like everybody to have equal opportunity to do their businesses honestly, and grow their businesses.”
The Commerce Minister said accountability and stipulated timelines should be there and best practices of various states or ministries in exports development must be shared.
Without setting a timeline, Goyal said the government plans to scale $1 trillion exports in both merchandise and services.
“We must position India as a global player by becoming competitive,” he said.
Referring to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recent visit to the United States, Goyal said many leading entrepreneurs have shown keen interest to invest in India during PM Modi’s meeting with heads of multinationals.
Launching the ‘Ease of Logistics’ portal, the minister said it will bring in transparency.
Goyal said the world is looking at India as the Favoured Investment Destination.
“Innovation, Quality and Competition by exporters is going to define the Brand India,” he said.
