@PiyushGoyal
Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal has exhorted the traders community to fully contribute towards the Aatmanirbhar Bharat campaign.

Speaking to the traders’ fraternity on the occasion of the National Traders’ Day today through virtual interaction, the Minister said that they should undertake a Customer Awareness drive to make people buy Make in India goods.

He also called upon them to act as the whistleblowers, in exposing the unscrupulous traders and businessmen who import poor-quality goods from unfriendly countries.

Mr Goyal said that Trading community will benefit a lot from the AatmaNirbhar Bharat campaign. He said that the Government has already put restrictions on many imported items, which can be easily produced in the country like Agarbati, Sports goods, TV, telephone, and Tyres.

He estimated that almost 10 lakh crore worth of imports can be easily substituted with the indigenously produced goods. He asked the traders to push for the Prime Minister’s clarion call for “Vocal for Local”.
