India to play important role in ensuring cost-effective & innovative healthcare solutions for future: Piyush Goyal

Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal has said that India will play an important role in ensuring cost-effective and innovative healthcare solutions for the future.

Mr Goyal was addressing the Asia Health 2020 summit of Confederation of Indian Industry yesterday. The Minister stressed on the importance of ensuring vaccines for Covid-19 at an affordable price to all, including less developed countries and poor. He said, this common attempt to find a vaccine for COVID-19 has really brought everyone together.

Mr Goyal said that our home-grown vaccine is progressing at rapid speed but at the same time, as Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, till we get a vaccine shot, we cannot be complacent about the pandemic. He said, history will laud India’s contribution in the fight against pandemic.

Describing the lockdown in the country as fully justified, the Minister said that WHO has often said that lockdown in India truly helped the nation prepare itself for pandemic and ensured that Indians come out of pandemic relatively better than many other developed countries.
