Great industrialist Mr Munjal wanted that as inflation is controllable it should be controlled with incentive schemes. Rate of interest should be decreased to promote purchasing capacity and competitiveness.
Prof Prashar openly declared that he is always available for LPU which has shown its potential in an amazing way. In nutshell, he underlined that for global success a one should be quality, reliability, timeliness, price and networking oriented. Taking example of Mahabharat’s Lord Krishna and Arjuna, he asked all to have completeness of vision and ability to execute. Mr Waghle laid stress on regional economic integration among SAARC countries to be as strong as European Union. He referred to PM Modi’s many policies, particularly manufacturing, for economic strength in the region. Prof Gill hinted that India will have to increase its competitiveness by devaluing its currency for more exports. He also stressed that purchasing power is not increasing as there is low and inequality of wages.
LPU Chancellor Mr Ashok Mittal forwarded his concern: “Seeing so much turmoil in diverse economies businesses of the world, we have come forward with present conference to contemplate on the possible solutions. We feel that on one side markets in the developing world including Asia are waiting to be tapped by the MNCs, the competition on the other is getting more intense in the existing markets. We feel that the conference is a suitable opportunity to deliberate and set the research agenda for competitive advantage and economic growth.” Mr Mittal expected: “Keep up with the time and the latest technology as only the fittest is going to survive. Today, the world has changed altogether from the gone years.”
