The Prime Minister’s emphasis on the motto of ‘India First’ has resonated across the world. When the World Trade Organisation was deliberating on the Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA), India firmly expressed reservations, stating that it compromises on India’s commitment to food security. For India, food security for the poor is an article of faith, something the Prime Minister is personally committed to.

India has sought a long lasting solution to public stock holding of food grains. India’s stand gathered support at the world stage as several Nations backed India’s stand. Eventually, India was able to ensure that there is no compromise on food security and at the same time it kept rounds of dialogues open with the world community.

5th May 2017, a day etched in history as the day when South Asian cooperation received a strong impetus- it was the day the South Asia Satellite was successfully launched, fulfilling a commitment India had made two years ago.

With the South Asia satellite, South Asian nations have extended their cooperation to space too!

To witness the creation of history, the leaders of India, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal and Sri Lanka took part in the programme via video conferencing.

Speaking during the programme, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi presented a complete picture of the potential that the South Asia satellite can achieve.

He said that the satellite will ensure better governance, effective communication, better banking and education in remote areas, accurate weather forecasting as well as linking people with tele-medicine thus ensuring better treatment.

Shri Modi rightly pointed out, “When we join hands and mutually share the fruits of knowledge, technology and growth, we can speed up our development and prosperity.”
