Economic stimulus package will boost 'Make in India': SCOPE

SCOPE hailed the impetus to businesses and MSMEs in the economic package of Rs 20 lakh crore to make ‘Atma Nirbhar Bharat’ for retracing economic growth

New Delhi: SCOPE (Standing Conference of Public Enterprises), an apex body of Public Sector Enterprises (PSEs) welcomes the economic stimulus package of the government to spur the economic growth and build a self-reliant and resilient India.

“While the government continues its responsibility towards migrants and the poor, the financial and other measures to MSMEs would play a significant role in boosting the Make in India initiative thereby making the country self-reliant on varied aspects" : SCOPE's DG Atul Sobti

SCOPE's Director General (DG) Atul Sobti while appreciating the commitment of the government said that the thrust given to various sectors through the economic stimulus would go a long way in bringing the economy back on a growth trajectory. “While the government continues its responsibility towards migrants and the poor, the financial and other measures to MSMEs would play a significant role in boosting the Make in India initiative thereby making the country self-reliant on varied aspects. The impetus to MSMEs shall play a special role for the public sector as PSEs make 25 percent of its procurements from the said sector.” DG SCOPE added.
