We are one of the fastest growing economies of about 2.5 trillion USD; and foreseeing to double it to 5 trillion USD in next 5 – 10 years, thus will become one of the biggest economies in the World. And most important part of this is, we intend 20 percent to 25 percent of this to come from manufacturing, to reach this very ambitious objective. Chemical Industry is the enabler of most of the other manufacturing industries. So, we are a very vital industry in terms of opportunities exist for all of us. But the question is, if this is going to be catered by the local manufacturers or would it be imported through other countries? We advocate to the Government for creating an enabling environment to do business better in terms of infrastructure, energy cost, stifling regulating rules, and various other factors.
