New Delhi: Emphasising the importance of inclusive growth, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said that governance infused with people`s participation is the key to overall progress.
Speaking at the `9th Pravasi Bharatiya Divas` here, Modi gave a slew of examples where his government had partnered with the people in sectors like industry, environment, rural development and agriculture, to ensure inclusive growth.
"The industry in Gujarat has grown at 13 percent. The bigger success is that Gujarat has an amazing mix of big, small, fast growing and sustainable industries. Gujarat contributes to 22 percent of exports and 30 percent of stock market capitalisation of the country," Modi said.
Underscoring the relevance of environment protection in an age of rapid industrialisation, he said his government has set up a department for climate change issues.
