A self-reliant India," Prime Minister Modi said addressing the 95th annual plenary session of the Indian Chamber of Commerce.
"The simplest method to be worked upon at present is to induce Indians to use their own products and get markets for Indian products in other countries," he added.
"At this time, we've to take Indian economy out of 'command and control' and take it towards 'plug and play'. This isn't the time for conservative approach. It's time for bold decisions and bold investments. It's time to prepare a globally competitive domestic supply chain," the PM said.
He praised the role of the International Chamber of Commerce ICC.
"ICC has contributed to the development of eastern India and northeast India and especially supported the manufacturing sector. ICC has from 1925 onwards, from when it was formed, has seen the growth of the country," he said.
He further said that northeast India could become a major hub for organic farming by creating bamboo and organic product clusters in the region.
