“India is poised to be worth up to $10 trillion in the next 15 years” – Suresh Prabhu
Suresh Prabhu, Minister of Commerce & Industry and Civil Aviation of India struck a bullish note at The Economic Times Supply Chain Management & Logistics Summit 2018 as he outlined the challenges and imperatives for the next stage of the India growth story Often spoken of as the backbone of the economy, India’s supply chain ecosystem is on the cusp of a wave of transformative growth thanks to a raft of regulatory and policy reforms that have been laid out. India thus stands at an inflection point in its history, with its logistics sector expected to reach a valuation of over $2 billion USD by 2019, and given the large potential that this sector has, there arises a need to understand challenges faced by the sector and the hurdles on the path to progress. Thefifth edition of The Economic Times Supply Chain Management & Logistics Summit 2017 saw Suresh Prabhu, Minister of Commerce & Industry and Civil Aviation of India, elucidate on steps taken by the government to give a fillip to the Supply Chain domain across the spectrum. Speaking at the event, he said, “Our economy is poised to grow up to $5 trillion in the next 7-8 years, and up to $10 trillion in the next 15 years. Logistics will play a key role in driving this growth, it has always been the backbone of the economy;it determines how fast an economy grows. So we are working on an economic plan to create logistic hubs and see how to more efficiently manage logistics. We are identifying hindrances and removing them. At the same time, we are trying to digitalise the entire supply chain. The idea is to prepare a proper integrated logistics plan.” Ease of trade and doing businessforms the fulcrum of the government’s proposals to increase India’s trade competitiveness, and this has direct relevance to the ‘Make in India’ campaign. There is thus a massive opportunity for the logistics industry to embark on a journey of transformative growth. Moreover, with implementation of policies such as GST and the investments being made into various aspects of logistics like physical infrastructure and technology, there lies a significant scope to create efficiency gains that can translate into better outcomes for all across business and society.
