Industry, exporters should not depend on subsidies; work on improving competitiveness: Piyush Goyal.

Commerce and industry minister Piyush Goyal on Thursday told industry and exporters to stop depending on the crutches of subsidies and grants from the government, and strive to make industry more competitive and self-reliant. 


I do not think that any programme or ambitious scheme can run only on subsidies and government help. We have to move out of this continuous effort and demand ... and make our industry truly competitive and self-reliant, Goyal said while addressing members of the Board of Trade and the Council of Trade Development and Promotion here.
