According to the Commerce and Industry Minister, Piyush Goyal, the government has identified 20 sectors where India can become a global supplier along with meeting the domestic demand.

“We have identified first 12 sectors and now 8 more, so we have 20 sectors in which Ficci and other associations are very much part of our engagement, where we have identified sectors where India can not only meet own domestic needs but also become globally competitive and become global leader supplying to the world,” he said in a Ficci webinar.

These sectors include food processing, organic farming, agro, chemicals, electronics, industrial machinery, furniture, leather, auto parts, and textiles, among others.

He also highlighted that despite having skilled carpenters and artisans, India continues to import furniture.
