Economic Reforms Agenda To Continue: Nirmala Sitharaman

More measures to be taken in the coming days

Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Monday said that the government will continue its reform agenda and take up more measures in days ahead.

In her address at the National MNCs Conference 2020, organized by the CII, Sitharaman said that in furtherance of its reforms agenda, the government is ensuring the setting up of dedicated special manufacturing zones for the production of pharma, medical devices, and APIs (active pharmaceutical ingredients) in six states.

The effective unified single-window mechanism is part of these zones, she said.

Sitharaman said that the Prime Minister has not lost the opportunity for deep reforms, even during the coronavirus crisis, and the reforms momentum would continue.

Noting that several measures are being taken up to keep the reforms impetus intact such as professionalization of the financial sector and thrust on disinvestments, she said that all enterprises, MNCs and India Inc, big, medium, and small enterprises, are facing a reset exercise in doing business.

CII National Committee on MNCs Chairman Soumitra Bhattacharya said that that MNCs acknowledge the fast-paced reforms that have become a regular feature of the current economic environment.

The reforms must continue given the tectonic shifts in global supply chains in a post-Covid world, which are attracting many foreign firms to shift their base to India, he said.

CII Director General Chandrajit Banerjee said that the government has been working rigorously to create a strong, vigorous, and dynamic environment for MNCs by introducing a plethora of reforms.
