Chambers to ensure that Indian businesses are inclusive : Venkaiah

Chambers to ensure that Indian businesses are inclusive : Venkaiah

Chennai, Oct 11 (UNI) The Chambers of Commerce in India should work to make sure that Indian businesses were inclusive and that vulnerable sections of the population were given equal opportunities, Vice-President M Venkaiah Naidu said on Thursday.

Speaking at the Platinum Jubilee Celebrations of the Tamil Chamber of Commerce (TCC) after presenting the Tamil Chamber and Chozha Naachiar Foundation Exim Awards, he said One often hears stories about how

women struggle to shatter the ‘glass ceiling’.

The industry should strive its best to end discrimination, especially against women. 'A woman’s pregnancy cannot be grounds for stalling her professional development', he said.

Stating that it was unethical and inhuman, he said it was up to the chamber to act as guardians to those who are wronged in such a manner. Calling for special focus to be placed upon Micro, small and medium enterprises and cottage industries, Mr Venkaiah said the chamber should work to promote self-help groups, especially that of women.

The success story of Kudumbashree in Kerala and the way it transformed the lives of ordinary women, who gained not only the much needed financial independence but also gained the respect that they rightfully deserved.

'It is an example worth emulating. Small industries are as crucial to our economy as transnational corporations which earn precious foreign exchange are. The reason being that they empower the poorest, the weakest,

the most vulnerable', he said, adding, "by encouraging cottage industries, we have to make our rural areas hubs of thriving economic activity, thereby ending distress migration."
