We are laying red carpet for all global companies: PM Modi at India Global Week 2020

Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the India Global Week 2020 said that Indians have the spirit to achieve what is believed to be impossible. He also said that his government is laying a red carpet for all global companies to come and establish their presence in India."India remains one of the most open economies in the world. We are 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 India does today," said PM "When India talks of revival it's revival with care, with compassion, which is sustainable both for environment and economy. Indians have the spirit to achieve what is believed to be impossible. No wonder that in India, we are already seeing green-shoots of economic recovery," PM Modi added.

State govt's consent essential to reopen monuments: MoS Tourism

While speaking to ANI in the national capital on July 09, the Minister of State (Independent Charge) in the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, Prahlad Singh Patel clarified on Ministry's decision to open monuments. "All monuments were allowed to open from July 06 but Standard Operating Procedure (SOPs) are very clear, everyone will have to ensure safety and follow local administration guidelines." "If a monument is in red zone and state government disagrees to it, our approval doesn't mean it will open. State government's consent is essential." "In Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI's) virtual conference they said it takes months and years (to get approval for shooting). It is natural that it will be difficult for people of film industry to go to other countries. They should follow Prime Minister Narendra Modi's advice and go to 15 destinations within country in three years," Prahlad Patel added. "I have requested them to go to the north-east and Himalayan states. We will coordinate. I have told them to file application, we will form a strategy. If they apply online, we might permit them within 15-20 days."
