Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla has said that India has been  proactive in assessing and dealing with the challenges caused by COVID-19.

In his virtual address to the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India on implementing the vision of Atma Nirbhar Bharat, Mr Shringla said that saving lives has been our foremost priority. He said, while the case load in the country continues to be high, India  has fared comparatively better than many other countries with a low death rate and high recovery rate. He said, we have also substantially ramped up our capacities in the healthcare sector in the past few months.

He said,  to  deal with the economic challenges posed by the pandemic and bring the  economy of the country back on track, the Prime Minister has enunciated a forward-looking economic approach under the rubric of Aatmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyaan. The stimulus package of nearly  20 Lakh Crore rupees launched  under the Abhiyaan aims to both reinvigorate the economy and provide a social safety net to our vulnerable sections. Mr Shringla said, Industry associations such as the ICAI are a critical part of our economic diplomacy and outreach.
