CM exhorts industrialists to adopt zero-defect-production and best packaging strategies to capture global markets

Chief Minister Mr. Narendra Modi on Monday gave GCCI MSME award to small and medium scale entrepreneurs. The award function was organized in Ahmedabad by Gujarat Chamber of Commerce and Industries (GCCI) and participated by top industrialists of the state.

The awards for three best MSME units were given to Mr. Jyantibhai Ukani – Vasu Healthcare, Vadodara, Mr. Rafi Abdul Rahim Maniyar – Maniyar group and Mr. Bhanuprasad Patel – Omni Lense Ltd.

Speaking on the occasion Chief Minister said the state government will celebrate 150th birth anniversary year of Swami Vivekananda as Yuva Shakti year and will work exceedingly to provide skill-development opportunities to the youths of Gujarat.

“Gujarat’s manufacturing units have built up a brand image and they have to come up with new initiatives to take maximum benefits from global economy”, he said.

Even the country like China is acknowledging Gujarat’s strength in manufacturing sector and is now keen to partner Gujarat, said Chief Minister.

In Gujarat, small businesses act in each other’s supplement within industrial clusters. Helping each other in skill-development was a part of Indian culture, but this institution was collapsed during the times of foreign rule on our country, he said.

Things like zero-defect production and production packaging strategy need to be adopted if we want to beat the global markets, he said. “Moreover, the industries will need to bring qualitative changes while focusing on technology and research”, Chief Minister said.

Speaking on the occasion industrialist Jaimin Vasa of Vasa group said that there are about three lakh small and medium scale industries in Gujarat which is giving employment to more than 20 lakh people. These industries are truly the growth engine of the state and the nation.

Former Director of IIM and the jury member for the awards Mr. Bakul Dholakiya elaborated the criteria for selection. He said that in Gujarat industrial houses get favorable atmosphere for business and that is the reason why micro industries turn into medium scale industries while medium scale industries turn into large scale industry in Gujarat.

Industry leaders Mr. Shankarbhai Patel, Mr. K T Patel, Mr. Nilesh Shukla, Mr. Nilesh Desai and other MSME industrialists were present on the occasion.

The Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi paid rich tribute to Pandit Jasraj on the occasion of the Jayanti of the doyen of Indian Classical Music. The Prime Minister talked of the personification of immortal energy of music by Pandit Jasraj and lauded Durga Jasraj and Pandit Shaarang Dev for keeping alive the glorious legacy of the maestro. The Prime Minister was speaking at the launch of the Pandit Jasraj Cultural Foundation via video conferencing.

The Prime Minister touched upon the vast knowledge imparted by the sages of Indian music tradition. Shri Modi said that the strength to feel the cosmic energy and ability to see music in the flow of universe is what makes Indian Classical music tradition so exceptional. “Music is a medium that makes us aware of our worldly duties and it also helps us transcend worldly attachments” the Prime Minister said.

The Prime Minister praised Pandit Jasraj Cultural Foundation for their goal of preserving India’s rich heritage of art and culture. He asked the Foundation to focus on two key aspects of this age of technology. Firstly, he said that Indian Music should create its identity in this age of globalisation. He said that the experience of Yoga Day has indicated that the world has benefited from Indian heritage and Indian music also has the capacity to stir the depth of the human mind. “Every person in the world is entitled to know about, learn and get benefits of Indian music. It is our responsibility to take care of that”, he said.

Secondly, the Prime Minister said that in today's era when technology’s influence is all pervasive, there should be technology and IT revolution in the field of music also. He called for startups dedicated solely to music, based on Indian instruments and traditions.

He also dwelled on recent efforts to regenerate the centres of culture and art like Kashi. The Prime Minister said that India has shown the way to a secured future to the world through its faith in environment preservation and love for nature. “In this Indian journey of development along with heritage, ‘Sabka Prayas’ should be included”, he concluded.
