I owe a debt of gratitude to all those who
have contributed in the formation and running
of chamber successfully, morally or materially.
Before I get a chance to share my views
with all of you, I would like to wish you
all a very very HAPPY NEW YEAR, though Earlier
May the year 2011 bring in more cheer for
industries and trade. I personally believe
that coming year would be a positive year
for the industrial growth. It will also
be the beginning of a new decade which will
require the industry to focus more on innovation
and new models of growth. The year 2012
hopefully would also see the Govt. in the
centre and the State focus on enhancing
economic growth and long term policy implementation.
I was going through the memory lane and
visualizing the sleeping village of Bhiwadi
at the time when I came to Bhiwadi in Sept.
1974 to put up the First Unit at Bhiwadi
to manufacture the Straw Board and its allied
products. A lot of water has passed under
the Bridges of Gangas since then. There
was not a single office at Bhiwadi. We had
to go to Alwar to get any small job accomplished
may it be RIICO, DIC or any other state
or central department. There was absolutely
no market from where we could buy the daily
needed necessities. For making an STD call
we used to go to Rewari, such were the conditions.
There was hardly any support worth the name
for the entrepreneur from the side of Govt.
