The Associated Chambers of Commerce of India or ASSOCHAM was established in 1920 by promoter chambers representing all regions of India. It has over 400 chambers and trade associations in its fold and serves over 4.5 lakh members across India.
Earlier on Friday, Gujarat CM Vijay Rupani addressed the industry during ASSOCHAM Foundation Week, Day 4 on various issues, discussing the core ideas to uplift the economy of Gujarat, making it a growth engine to India’s vision of a US 5 trillion-dollar economy.
Lauding the role of ASSOCHAM and the private sector for its contribution to the growth of the economy and country, Union Minister Dr MN Pandey invited the private sector to play a wider role in doing so and also urged them to do their best to rehabilitate migrant workers.
India’s aim of becoming self-reliant and a US 5 trillion-dollar economy will depend on the education and skill of its people. The Government is focused on taking several steps for skilling and re-skilling people, especially youth, through its various programmes, said the Union Minister.
