With the objective of building greater awareness and consensus on various issues critical for the country’s growth, CII has launched a monthly publication called Policy Watch. It is widely circulated to all stakeholders, particularly to membership and government to communicate Industry’s views and recommendations across different sectors.
CII has identified accelerating growth and creating employment as the foremost priorities for the nation as it recover from two years of slow growth and falling investments. A proactive reform agenda could lift GDP growth to 6.5 per cent this year and to above 8 per cent by 2016-17. The objective should be to create 150 million jobs over the next decade. The CII Theme for the year therefore is ‘Accelerating Growth, Creating Employment’.
This issue of Policy Watch examines the critically important enablers that have the potential to boost economic growth, and help India return to a high-growth trajectory. These enablers include:
- Education System
- Skill Development
- Economic Growth
- Manufacturing Sector Growth
- Ease of Doing Business
