NITI Aayog holds its 8th governing council meeting today

New Delhi:: The eighth governing council meeting of the government's policy think tank NITI Aayog will be today, May 27, in Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.

In addition to the main topic of "Viksit Bharat @ 2047: Role of Team India," the think tank said in a statement that the day-long meeting would also cover important topics like "Thrust on MSMEs," "Infrastructure and Investments," "Minimising Compliances," "Women Empowerment," "Health and Nutrition," "Skill Development," and "Gati Shakti for Area Development and Social Infrastructure."

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who serves as the head of NITI Aayog, would preside over the meeting, the organisation announced. In addition to the vice-chairman and other NITI Aayog members, all chief ministers or lieutenant governors of the states and union territories will be in attendance.

These topics were thoroughly discussed at the second Chief Secretaries Conference, which was held in January 2023 as a prelude to the 8th Governing Council Meeting.

In order to obtain well-rounded opinions from grassroots levels, the statement claims that extensive stakeholder discussions and brainstorming sessions with subject specialists, academics, and practitioners were held prior to the Conference.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi attended the Chief Secretaries Conference, which brought together a few secretaries from the Indian government and chief secretaries from every state and UT. Active participants shared topical best practises and policy insights.

India, the most populous country and the fifth-largest economy in the world, is at a point in its economic development trajectory where it can see accelerated growth over the next 25 years, according to NITI Aayog's statement.

In light of this, NITI Aayog stated that the 8th Governing Council Meeting offers a chance to develop a strategy for Viksit Bharat by 2047 in which the Centre and States may collaborate as Team India. According to the think tank, this will be significant in the global context since India's socioeconomic progress and change can have a favourable and multiplier effect on the rest of the globe.

In addition, the backdrop of this 8th Governing Council Meeting is India's G20 Presidency. India's G20 motto, "One Earth, One Family, One Future," embodies its values as a civilised nation and its understanding of how each nation can contribute to the future of the globe.
