    Atmanirbhar Bharat is not anti-globalisation: CEO, NITI Aayog

    Synopsis

    He said that the country needs to leapfrog into the world of technology.

    India very often gets into sunset areas of industries and then it becomes very difficult to penetrate in the global market.
    Innovation is the key to success for economic growth and Atmanirbhar Bharat is not anti-globalisation, said Amitabh Kant, CEO, NITI Aayog on Tuesday.

    Sharing his thoughts at FICCI Frames he said that India is in the midst of transformation and people who work with the technology and sunrise sectors will survive going ahead.

    He said that the country needs to leapfrog into the world of technology. India very often gets into sunset areas of industries and then it becomes very difficult to penetrate in the global market. Therefore, it is very important for the country to get into new areas of growth.

    Kant highlighted that people who are going to work on data and artificial intelligence will drive growth going ahead.

    Sharing his thoughts at FICCI Frames through video conferencing, he added that India’s usage of data will be enormous. “There is a need to move from data to data intelligent,” he said.

    Kant also added that use of blockchain is the need of the hour. Technology will also help in real-time monitoring of specific issues. He said that India needs to liberalise on clinical trials and there is a need to get into high-value products.

    Commenting on Atmanirbhar Bharat, Kant said the programme has brought many reforms in the form of MSME definition, agricultural sector, among others.

    “Atmanirbhar Bharat is not anti-globalisation. It is about getting the best from the world. It not about protectionism. It is about enhancing the ability of Indian companies to create world-class products and capture the domestic market and then use the strength of the domestic market to penetrate into the global market. It is about being a global champion.”

    He highlighted that everything is going to be digital and even face-to-face consultation will go in years to come.

    Don’t listen to Amitav. He is shedding crocodile’s tears. NITI Aayog performance is disappointing and has to be dismantled and Amitav has to resign and look of for other jobs or quietly retire.

    I remember one Kannada poet known as Sarvagna. He has preached about atmanirbharatha. That is “ learn from known people,learn from experience, learn from books, learn from elders, and learn from any body who is well versed.
