PM talks Sustainability!

Finally, the Prime Minister of India – Dr. Manmohan Singh has realized that Economic Growth – in the absence of the concept of sustainable development may do wonders for India but it cannot and will not work for Bharat.

His speech to the Captains of Industry at the Confederation of Indian Industries (CII) last week talked of a ten-fold path for corporate India which included offering jobs to the less -privileged, resist excessive remuneration to promoters and senior executives and discourage conspicuous consumption, invest in environment-friendly technologies, desist from anti-competitive behaviour, promote enterprise and innovation, fight corruption, etc.

We hope the speech will be followed by some form of policy intervention which will ensure that his vision is adopted by the entire corporate sector.
