Aatmanirbhar Bharat is about opening India’s doors wider, says Piyush Goyal

Union Minister Piyush Goyal has said that Aatmanirbhar Bharat is about opening India’s doors wider so that India engages with the world from a position of strength, on equal, fair and reciprocal terms.

Delivering the keynote address at an event, he said that India should focus its energies on creating within the country, learning from experiences across the world, bringing best of technologies to India, attracting capital, skills and high-quality education and healthcare. He said technology will play an important role in achieving Atma Nirbharta, and the government will support start-ups and industry in expanding the technology ecosystem.

Mr Goyal said that the dream of Aatmanirbhar Bharat can become a reality only if people follow the clarion call of Vocal for Local. He also said that India should focus its energy on doing Free Trade Agreements with countries who can provide high technology products while providing market access to products where India has strength.
