The momentum for reform shall continue. Even in the times of Covid pandemic, the Prime Minister has not lost an opportunity to take deep reforms - Nirmala Sitharaman
New Delhi: Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Monday assured the industry that momentum of economic reforms will continue to make India a hotspot of global investment.
India has turned the crisis created by Covid-19 pandemic into an opportunity to push the economic reforms, which remained pending for decades, she said, while addressing the National MNCs Conference-2020 organised by the industry chamber CII.
"Even in the times of Covid pandemic, the Prime Minister has not lost an opportunity to take deep reforms, to undertake those kinds of reforms which have not seen the light of the day over the decades. The momentum for reform shall continue. Several more active reform-related steps are being taken up," Sitharaman said.
The financial sector is being professionalised and the government will continue with disinvestment agenda, she added
