Bhopal: Chief Minister Kamal Nath said that industrial groups will have to play an important role in the uplift of weaker sections to bring equality at all levels in society and the country. This will accelerate the growth of industries as well as of the country. Kamal Nath was addressing the 125th Annual Conference of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) in Indore today on the subject of 'Business and Beyond'. The Minister for Home Bala Bachchan, Minister for Public Health and Family Welfare Tulsi Silawat were present on the occasion.
Empower the poor and backward sections
The Chief Minister said that instead of striving for the prosperity today, there is need to work for the progress of poor and backward people of the society at all levels. This will automatically make the country and society strong. He said that along with bringing improvement in government and administration, there is also a need to improve behaviour. Constant changes are taking place in the country and the world. People’s aspirations are also increasing with requirements. It is necessary for the industrial development of Madhya Pradesh that with the changing world, CII should play a role of an industry motivator. Industries and startup entrepreneurs should make their functioning ideal, so that Madhya Pradesh could establish its image as an ideal industrial destination in the country and the world.
Need for new strategy to adopt new technologies
Kamal Nath said that rapid changes are taking place in the field of technology. Robotics and artificial intelligence have taken the place of human beings. Keeping this in mind, industrial units have to make new strategy pertaining to their functioning.
The Chief Minister said that Madhya Pradesh is the second state in the country in horticulture sector. There is a vast scope of horticulture in the state. With small efforts, we can make Madhya Pradesh the horticulture capital of the country. For this, processing units at large scale should be set up by the investors to enable us to provide better products in the market. This will benefit both farmers and industrial units.
All qualities to become logistic hub
The Chief Minister said that Madhya Pradesh has all the qualities for becoming a logistic hub. We can develop the state as a dry port. By expanding the air services, we can meet the needs of the industry. The state government is making planned efforts in this direction. CII Madhya Pradesh should also prepare a proposal in this regard, on the basis of which the government can take necessary decisions.
On this occasion, the Chief Minister honoured the persons of industrial fraternity with the CII Awards for their outstanding work in the field of industry. The conference was also addressed by the Chairman of CII Praveen Agarwal and Sunil Mathur.
