Anil Kumar Chaudhary, Chairman, SAIL, and Chairman of the CII PSE Council, chaired the PSE Summit 2020 organised on the topic of ‘PSEs: Furthering Atmanirbhar Bharat’, on November 27.
In his welcome address, Chaudhary emphasised on the significant and irreplaceable role by the public sector in strengthening the country’s self-reliance and for realising the dream of Atmanirbhar Bharat. He said, “Increasing self-reliance is the cornerstone today for better economic performance and that is why Atmanirbhar Bharat has become so close to our thoughts and actions and today’s summit is marked to celebrate the very spirit of Atmanirbhar Bharat”.
The Chairman further said, “’Perform or Perish’ is the key that has gripped both the Industry in general and PSEs in particular.” He said the entire PSE fraternity and the industry captains attending the summit would echo his confidence in the abilities of the public sector in furthering the spirit of self-reliance.
The summit had various sessions revolving around the spirit of Atmanirbhar Bharat in the era of globalisation for different PSE sectors. Several industry doyens participated in these sessions where deliberation on various ingenious ways of contributing towards self-reliance took place.
In the valedictory session, Chaudhary emphasised on strengthening the cost competitiveness, internal decision-making and the project implementation capabilities of the PSEs for their improved performance.
