Union Minister for Commerce and Industry Piyush Goyal on Friday asked the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) to re-invent themselves and aspire to become a think-tank rather than restricting themselves to being advocates for day-to-day industry issues. He asked the organization to study global trends and patterns in business and find meaningful and effective means to engage with these developments.

While addressing FICCI's National Executive Committee Meeting, Goyal said that the world has enormous expectations from India, not just for the immediate future. Still, the long term and the world expected India to drive global growth, provide the talent pool that the world needs and spearhead technology transformations. The Minister said that the world over, companies were planning to set up manufacturing plants and R&D facilities in India and hoping to hire its young and talented workforce in significant numbers.

"Country is now preparing for the roll-out of 5G across the length and breadth of the nation, and industry needs to partner with the government to ensure that the whole nation has access to the multifarious advantages of 5G," Goyal added.
