FMCG sector leading growth to make India USD 5 trillion economy New Delhi, Sept 27 (KNN) Addressing the Valedictory Session at FICCI MASSMERIZE 2021, Ashwini Kumar Choubey, Minister of State, Ministry for Consumer Affairs, Food & Public Distribution said that India’s economy is well on its path to recovery and the FMCG sector is a catalyst in Indias roadmap to USD 5 trillion economy.
The minister explained about the growing impact of digitization and e-commerce, buyers’ inclination towards technology and the global conceptualisation of the belief ‘Vasudev Kutumbaka’.
“Digital connectivity today is not limited to cities but is also available in rural areas of India. With this, the reach of e-commerce and brand has reached the panchayats of India. As a result, the e-commerce sector is expected to grow exponentially,” said Ashwini Kumar Choubey.
Speaking on the government initiatives, Minister Choubey said the central government is focused not only on the recovery of the economy but also took initiatives to make India a manufacturing hub.
Emphasising on the reforms led by the government he said, “We have recently implemented National Single Window System for investors and business. This will go a long way in giving shape to schemes like Make in India, Startup India. Entrepreneurs will benefit greatly. ”
“It is also the endeavour of the Government of India that the consumer of this country should be a conscious consumer, he should get all the information about his choice, get it at the right price, at a competitive price and his problems should be resolved within a time limit,” stated Minister Choubey.
Amitabh Kant, CEO, NITI Aayog said in an economy where close to 55% of the GDP comes from consumption expenditure, the FMCG sector emerges as one of the largest sectors of the economy.
“Growing awareness, easier access and changing lifestyle have been the key growth drivers for the sector. There were many disruptions in the business models of the sector, yet the world showed the capacity for innovation and entrepreneurial spirit, new business models came up and delivery channels were modified,” stated Kant.
He also stated that Digital supply chains are the future, and we must work towards making this future reality in India. Many Indian FMCG companies, he said, have the potential to become global leaders, it is only through resilient and sustainable practices they will be able to scale the heights.
Speaking about the Kirana stores, Kant said, “India’s Kirana store makes a huge segment of our economy, especially in the FMCG sector where the rural economies matter as much the urban economy.
