The Vice-President said Chambers of commerce should also focus on innovations,
especially when it comes to agriculture.
''Our agriculture is not sustainable and lacks the much needed forward and
backward linkages. You should take students and labs to the field and give
the farmers the advantage of modern technology. You should create efficient
supply chains and cold storage systems'', he said.
The crisis in agriculture could be and must be ended and the Chamber has a
crucial role to play here and realise the dream of doubling farmers’ incomes
by 2022 possible.
Another one of the Chamber's crucial mandates was to encourage the private
sector to be more generous when it comes to their social responsibility and
not limit themselves to their mandated CSR spending.
''The core of Indian philosophy is sharing and caring. We have to nurture
and mould our private sector to share their wealth and care for the less
fortunate. When corporate become generous, they achieve wonders and Indian
corporates do have a history of great generosity of spirit'', Mr Venkaiah
Naidu said.
Observing that Chambers act as bridges that connect the governments and
the industry in creating conducive atmosphere for the businesses to thrive
and produce wealth, Mr Naidu said the chambers should be conscience
keepers of the private sector.
There were a number of areas where the private sector should be mature enough
to undertake self regulation. Environmental compliance audits being one example.
''We are at a juncture where uncontrolled development has caused almost
irreversible ecological and environmental damage'', he noted.
''You also have to encourage and nurture entrepreneurship. The Indian
government wants the youth of today to ‘stand up’ on their own two feet.
Entrepreneurship makes people ‘job creators’ and it has a multiplying
effect on employment generation and contributes to general prosperity'',
the Vice-President said.
