"During my Presidency, my Assocham colleagues and I will work closely with the government on the visionary goal of our Prime Minister Narendra Modi for India to become a developed nation with a multi-fold increase in the country's per capita income and continuation of bold economic growth.

"I look forward to supporting the efforts being made by the industry to achieve the country's sustainability goals," Nayar said. PTI RSN SGC RSN BAL BAL
