“Be the Revival: India and the Better New World” is the theme for this year’s India Global Week 2020. PM Narendra Modi has made a major world-wide address focusing on the agriculture sector and MSME’s.

The three-day summit of the India Global Meet 2020, being held on a virtual platform given the coronavirus pandemic lockdown, had senior Cabinet ministers, including External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar, Railways and Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal, Civil Aviation and Urban Affairs Minister Hardeep Singh Puri, IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad and Skill Development Minister Mahendra Nath Pandey, among some of the prominent speakers from India.

On the UK side, Prince Charles will be making a special address at the India Global Meet and the British government is lining up a high-profile set of speakers, including Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, Home Secretary Priti Patel, Health Secretary Matt Hancock and International Trade Secretary Liz Truss. Gaitri Kumar will also be addressing the event later this week, among her inaugural engagements as the new Indian High Commissioner to the UK.

India Global Week 2020: Key highlights from PM Modi speech

  • India is a powerhouse of talent that is eager to contribute.
  • There are more opportunities for private investment in the space sector thus providing greater access to commercial use of space tech for the benefit of people.
  • A booming MSME sector will also complement the big industry.
  • Investment opportunities are there in the defence sector.
  • There are many possibilities and opportunities in various sunrise sectors in India. The agriculture reforms provide a very attractive investment opportunity to invest in storage and logistics.
  • India remains one of the most open economies in the world which is laying a red carpet for all global companies to come and establish their presence in India. Very few countries will offer the kind of opportunities that India does today.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic has once again shown that India's pharmaceutical industry is an asset not just for India but for the entire world. It has played a leading role in reducing the cost of medicines, especially for developing countries.
  • ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ is not about being self-contained. It is about being self-sustaining and self-generating.
  • India is ready to do whatever it can for global good and prosperity. India is reforming, performing and transforming.
  • Indians have the spirit to achieve what is believed to be impossible. There are already green-shoots in India when it comes to economic recovery.
  • When India talks about revival, it is revival with care, revival with compassion, and revival which is sustainable -- both for the environment and the economy.
