Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that to build a developed India, the country is focussing on four pillars - infrastructure, investment, innovation and inclusion.

PM Modi said, today, the entire world is reposing its faith in India and it is being looked up as a country that can bring stability to the global supply chain.

He noted that the country will be able to take full advantage of this only if states take lead, maintain focus on quality and take decisions with an India-first approach.

The Prime Minister said this while addressing the second National Conference of Chief Secretaries in Delhi yesterday.

The three-day Conference focused on achieving rapid and sustained economic growth in partnership with the States.

He added that States should focus on pro-development governance, ease of doing business, ease of living and provision of robust infrastructure.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi also called upon the Chief Secretaries to focus on ending mindless compliances and outdated laws and rules.

He said, at a time when India is initiating unparalleled reforms, there is no scope for over-regulation and mindless restrictions.

During the Conference, the Aspirational Blocks programme was also launched by the Prime Minister. The programme will improve the Ease Of Living for citizens in over 500 identified blocks across the country.

Discussing how different government departments keep asking for the same documents, the Prime Minister said that today the need of the hour is to move towards self-certification, deemed approvals and standardisation of forms.

He also spoke about how the country is working towards bettering both physical and social infrastructure and discussed PM GatiShakti National Masterplan.

He stressed the need to continue strengthening the MSME sector.

He said this is important in order to become Aatmanirbhar and boost economic growth. He said that it is equally important to popularise local products. Mr Modi also highlighted why quality is essential in every sphere of the economy.

Prime Minister Modi also emphasised that States should try to adopt a strong cyber security strategy, adding that this investment is like insurance for the future. During the Conference, Prime Minister also discussed the development of coastal areas of the country.

He said that the vast Exclusive Economic Zone of the country is equipped with resources and offers tremendous opportunities for the country.

Stressing on the need for increased awareness of the circular economy, Prime Minister highlighted Mission LiFE (Lifestyle of Environment) and the important role the states can play in furthering it.

Stating that on India’s initiative, the United Nations has declared 2023 as the International Year of Millets, the Prime Minister said that millets are not only smart food but are also environmentally friendly and may turn out to be a sustainable future food.

He said that states should work on research related to millet products. Prime Minister also discussed establishing Millet Cafes at prominent public places and state government offices across the country.

He added that millets can be showcased in the G-20 meetings being held in states.

For the preparations related to G-20 meetings in the States, Prime Minister stressed the importance of involving the common citizens. Prime Minister Modi also discussed the need to enhance the capacity of bureaucracy and the launch of Mission Karmayogi.
