Prime Minister Modi has given India a place at the high table in the international community, said Union Minister Piyush Goyal while citing India’s success at the recently concluded World Trade Organisation (WTO) 12th ministerial conference. 

The prestige that Indians receive today across the world is a symbol of a New and Atma Nirbhar India that is emerging as the voice of the world,” he said.

Goyal said India set the narrative at the WTO ministerial talks. “On the one side WTO and multilateralism have been promoted, while India batted on the front foot, candidly laying before the world and ensuring the interests of our farmers, fishermen and MSMEs,” said Goyal, 

He added that checks are being placed on illegal fishing on the high seas and our fishermen will have full freedom in our EEZ. Similarly, we have ensured the MSP stays and our farmers' interests have been protected 

Addressing the gathering after PM Modi dedicated to the nation the main tunnel and five underpasses of the Pragati Maidan integrated transit corridor project in New Delhi, he said it is a result of Modi’s commitment toward ease of living that today the Pragati Maidan integrated transit corridor project has been completed.

"This is a good example of the saying, ‘Modi hai to mumkin hai’ (Modi makes it possible)," he said. 

Goyal said the tunnel is a shining example of Atma Nirbhar Bharat as our engineers have done the entire tunnel construction and design. 

“We have undertaken a systematic shift in integrated planning and execution of the civil works during its construction, utility shifting alone is to the tune of Rs 32 crore,” he said.
