New Delhi: Minister for Investment and Trade, Martin Hamilton, launched a wholly updated Engagement strategy report; mentioning that the revisions will enhance the bilateral commercial ties between India and especially its diaspora in South Australia.

This refinement of the original strategy will prepare South Australian businesses to embrace new opportunities that stem from our evolving relationship with India,” Hamilton-Smith said.

Therefore, one of the aspects specified in the report is that there will be a further involvement taking place among the Indian diaspora in the state and that of the activation of the South Australia club in India.

“Major reforms have also occurred in India after the 2014 election of the Modi Government. We have identified a Government-to-Government approach as being effective in providing opportunities for commercial and cultural engagement,” he said.

Thus, in an attempt to strengthen their International connections, emphasis on the commercial and cultural nexus will be done by focusing on two major initiatives as provisioned by Modi and his government – ‘Skilling India’ and ‘Make in India’.

“We have listened to exporters and updated the strategy priorities to help build on existing partnerships and seize new opportunities for collaboration,” he said.

Pointing out four essential fields of aerospace and defense, energy and natural resources, educational and clean technology, the report suggests that the Government should be involved intimately in services-based exports to India.

Speaking of services and technology, the report also adds about the significance of agribusiness, tourism, culture, and health.

To examine the largely revised report of strategy, one cannot miss out talking about the decision taken to get engaged in business and a new business education program with that of the neighboring state of Rajasthan.

The policy of India Engagement strategy first came to fruition back in 2012. (Inputs from Agencies)

A few months back, the UN as well has crowned him with the Champions of the Earth, the highest environmental honor.

Many will not disagree that the PM Modi is fairly unpopular among a certain popular elite within the country. However, he has earned an immeasurable number of admirers outside the country. The fact why he is an eyesore for certain groups of people and celebrities while they are bowled over and ever supportive of specific dull-witted and inexperienced leaders is something very weird and contrasting. This phenomenon defies the long-held assumption that “education” makes one rational and free from the psychological shortfall. Nevertheless, PM Modi is least bothered what his smart detractors think and do against him.  He hardly wishes evil upon anyone. He has multiple of reasons to stay buoyed and cheery. The flood of praises coming from outside the country has always swelled PM Modi’s chest. Therefore, even in the foreign soil he goes, without a hitch, shouting at full throttle —‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’.  

Truly, it’s totally wrong to ignore many achievements associated with PM Modi. Yes, he has been chosen to be honored with the highest civilian award – Order of Zayed by the UAE government.  Not just that, the countries like Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan and Palestine also have come forward to honor the Indian PM with their respective highest awards. A few months back, the UN as well has crowned him with the Champions of the Earth, the highest environmental honor. His unfaltering dedication and devotion to execute formulated policies and planes have yielded positive results, though some section of powerful people try to undermine and demean them all.

Modi government has been able to pull off many thorny external affairs and issues too quickly.

What is most attractive in PM Modi is that he is smartly clever to strike the personal kinship with any individual foreign leaders and diplomats. Yes, due to his personal touch and warmth, the Modi government has been able to pull off many thorny external affairs and issues too quickly. Of course, this is doubtlessly praiseworthy. Yes, good truths should be not suppressed and falsehood should not be exaggerated.

However, a very strange vibe is noticed in the country. It is nothing but an unenthusiastic silence maintained by the popular media when Modi receives some accolades and appreciation. Many choose not to mention it at all, not even as news-item. This all makes everything all the more conspicuous. Well, this, in fact, only prompts the swarm of netizens to be more active in social media, their battlefields. They are seen furiously vocal. The ranting, raving, and name-calling against the backdrop of the importance given to a certain class of leaders make the situation less pleasant and logical. Not just that people in the social media are quick to throw up contrasting examples citing how media goes gaga over a “less intelligent lot” while keeping deafening silence over things that bring glory and fame to the nation. This is doubtlessly a bizarre development. This way the detractors or opponents always run the risk of losing their own integrity.

A business done by sacrificing integrity ends up in disaster. Opposition to ideas and political parties is always welcome, which is democratic, but the biased attitude against the “truth” and positivity can only dilute the sanctity of the enterprise and professionalism. As concerned citizens, should we not first want that the light of glory and joy dispel the gloom of darkness and despair in the country? Let’s not waste our precious life by struggling to call the untruth as truth and vice versa. This exercise only contributes to polluting our mindset and the country becomes less peaceful and more vulnerable.
