Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said India will play a leading role in the global revival story and that the country has a strong history of overcoming every challenge.
Speaking at the India Global Week 2020, PM Modi said, “In these times, it is natural to talk about revival. It is equally natural to link global revival and India. There is faith that the story of global revival will have India playing a leading role.”
The prime minister spoke at length over the global popularity of India’s talent force.
“Who can forget the Indian tech industry & tech professionals? They have been showing the way for decades. India is a power-house of talent that is eager to contribute,” he said.
PM Modi went on to say that Indians are natural reformers and added that historically, the country has managed to overcome every challenge — be it social or economic.
“On one hand India is fighting a strong battle against the global pandemic. With an increased focus on people’s health, we are equally focussed on the health of the economy,” he said.
He touched upon the economic adversities caused by the coronavirus pandemic and added that India is aiming for “revival with care”.
“Indians have the spirit to achieve what is believed to be impossible. No wonder that in India, we are already seeing green shoots of economic recovery,” PM Modi said.
