Dialogue on Jobs, Growth and Sustainability
CHIEF GUEST - Hon'ble Shri Nitin Gadkari

11 Jun 2020   |   1100-1200 hrs IST

In the upcoming edition of Parishad, Hon'ble Shri Nitin Gadkari (India's Union Minister of MSMEs, and Minister of Road Transport and Highways, Govt. of India) will launch CEEW and NIPFP's report 'Jobs, Growth and Sustainability: A New Social Contract for India’s Recovery'. The ensuing discussion will focus on building a more resilient and competitive MSME sector to help them withstand systemic shocks.

About Jobs, Growth and Sustainability: The report, by CEEW and the National Institute of Public Finance and Policy (NIPFP), reflects deeply on the need for structural reforms to build an Aatma Nirbhar Bharat. The recommendations address a range of concerns such as the crisis of informal and migrant labour, building a stronger and more sustainable MSME sector, reducing environmental and public health risks, enhancing food, water and resource security, sustaining clean air in our cities, allocating subsidies equitably, strengthening the power sector while boosting the energy transition, encouraging shifts towards cleaner fossil fuels, deepening markets for renewables and distributed energy, and building the hard and soft infrastructure to handle disasters.

“Parishad - The CEEW Webinars” is the virtual platform to debate real challenges — and to bring sustainability from the margin to the mainstream. Check out our upcoming sessions here.
