Indian Diaspora's Remittances rose by 12 pc to USD 100-Bn in 2022: Sitharaman

INDORE: Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman highlighted the contribution of non-resident Indians on Tuesday, saying that remittances given to the nation by  Indian Diasporas were projected to be about USD 100 billion for the year 2022, an increase of 12% in a single year.

Speaking at a session of the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas (PBD) convention in the Madhya Pradesh city of Indore, she referred to NRIs as the "real ambassadors of India" and urged them to use made in India goods and services as much as they could to help promote the nation's distinct brand internationally.

Sitharaman said, the "European Union (EU) plus one") policy is now being discussed around the world in place of the "China plus one" approach. She said that in contrast to China and the EU, the government is making a strong case for India as a nation where global corporations may locate their factories.

She said, the Indian diaspora should collaborate with local small- and large-business owners so that NRIs' entrepreneurial abilities can be utilised during the course of the next 25 years, or the "Amrit Kaal," of freedom.
"I am aware that remittances sent home by emigrant Indians will amount to about 100 billion US dollars in 2022. One of the greatest remittances coming in is this one "said the finance minister. This has gone up by 12 per cent if compared to 2021, she said.

"Within a year, which was post-pandemic, people believed Indian workers would not travel overseas again. They have not only returned, but more have gone for extremely valuable employment, and the number of remittances has increased by 12 percent within a year," she said. She claimed that India is developing into a hub of knowledge and progress on a worldwide scale due to the prominence of Indian specialists in information technology, digital technology, autos, semiconductor designing, pharmaceutical production, and other disciplines.

"An ambitious India will concentrate on four "Is" in the Amrit Kaal of freedom," "which comprise innovation, inclusion, investment, and infrastructure," she said.
