Trust and Flexibility Key Factors
Referring to large-scale manufacturing projects that will transform business and industry, impact economies and societies, Vaishnav said that there are many seemingly impossible goals but trust and resilience will be the key factors for this. He said that all the technological advances are being made. And a lot of work is also going on to promote clean energy.
Vaishnav said, ‘Along with this, the value of trust is also very important. If you are making sure you are meeting contractual commitments, this is also trust. There is also confidence in ensuring the use of clean energy. Flexibility is also an important factor.
He said that the Indian government is paying a lot of attention to clean energy. From the government’s point of view, it will be important that clean energy is used in manufacturing. Apart from this, in the era of rapidly changing technology, the government will have to emphasize on innovation.
