Union Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal is on a six-day visit to San Francisco and Los Angeles. He has been highlighting Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s management skills at Stanford University in California.
In a meeting with the University leadership, faculty and staff he said, “I personally have seen over the last eight years of being in the government that PM Modi’s way of working brings in some very deeply thought out management principles. PM Modi’s way of working has management principles that articulate his thoughts on preparing an agenda or the blueprint for India’s progress.”
Goyal cited the example of the LED bulbs programme UJALA that created a large and sustainable market for LED bulbs in India using the no-subsidy, bulk procurement model, a classic case study of PM Modi’s vision of energy conservation.
On Monday, when he reached the US, he also focused on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership and said that under his guidance India has achieved many glories.
He said, “Under the leadership of PM Modi, India’s pride has increased in the world. We’ve just celebrated ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’. “Many overseas Indians have said that the value of Indian passports has increased manifolds. The only desire in the heart of every Indian is that we should become a ‘Vishwa Guru’.”
Goyal will also meet US Trade Representative Katherine Tai and US Secretary of Commerce Gina M Raimondo on the sidelines of the IPEF ministerial meeting. The IPEF was launched jointly by the US and other partner countries of the Indo-Pacific region on May 23 in Tokyo.
