First communication from the CII President to all members after assuming the office of CII, President.
The travails of the global economy appear to be still not behind us, despite gradual recovery during 2010 from the worst global
economic conditions since World War II. Continued fiscal and debt burdens vitiate the recovery process, imparting a degree of
fragility and uncertainty to global economic conditions. The world needs a new source of growth and stability, and India, a
rapidly growing economy with strong internal demand, offers a new opportunity.
India remained relatively untrammeled by the developments in the Eurozone and reverted to close to 9% GDP growth rates in
2010. Growth was broad-based across all sectors, including agriculture, manufacturing and services. Public commitment to
calibrated exit from expansionary fiscal policy and continued corporate and household confidence have helped sustain a
virtuous growth cycle. The resurgence of the rural economy and intensified infrastructure mission further strengthened the
foundations for medium-term growth propensities.
In exercise of the powers under section 92 of the Food Safety and Standards Act,
2006 (34 of 2006), the Food Safety and Standards Authority hereby makes some
Regulations (Pls download PDF for details).
The Global Innovation & Technology Alliance is a joint initiative of CII and the Department of Science & Technology, Government of India, to promote and facilitate international industrial R&D collaborations, to boost the Innovation Ecosystem in the country.
