Union Minister of Textiles, Commerce and Industry, Consumer Affairs and Food and Public Distribution, Piyush Goyal while addressing the forum.

Each one of our programmes is with the singular purpose of leveraging our strengths, becoming a global player, expanding our sphere of influence in geopolitics and trade and business, said Union Minister Piyush Goyal. 

Goyal said that it is a testament to our collective effort that we have crossed the target of 400 billion dollars in goods exports for the first time in our history. 

“A lot of business-focused initiatives like Startup India, digital initiatives, DBT, efforts to demystify laws coupled with central government's commitment for Rs 7.5 lakh crore investment will give a big boost to employment and economy," he said. 

He added that these efforts will kickstart demand and thereby promote private sector investment.

Lauding the national single window system, the beta version of which has been launched, Goyal said the NSWS aims to fasten clearances. We want to reduce the industry's compliance burden and remove pain points in-laws. 

The Minister said that PM Gati Shakti entails the geospatial mapping of everything in the country, different layers of maps that talk to each other, leading to integrated planning, with better optimisation of time and cost.

“One of the examples is that we are now able to remove the situation of projects getting stuck due to the crossing of forest and rail lines," he said.
