N. Chandrasekaran, Chairman of Tata Sons, emphasized that India’s growth trajectory holds the potential to shape the global future. Speaking at the inaugural session of the B20 summit, he pointed to key factors propelling India’s growth, such as the PM Gati Shakti scheme, product-linked incentive (PLI) schemes, reduced corporate taxes, and the burgeoning startup ecosystem.
These growth drivers, Chandrasekaran stated, are instrumental in maintaining India’s strong momentum among the G20 nations. In parallel, Dinesh Khara, Chairman of the State Bank of India and leader of B20 India’s task force on financial inclusion for economic empowerment, highlighted their identification of 11 key themes aimed at enhancing global financial inclusion.
These themes encompass private sector engagement, digital public sector rollouts, capacity building, gender-inclusive finance, lowering borrowing costs for underserved segments, leveraging banking correspondents, and targeted interventions in agriculture and rural sectors, among others.
