Vice president Venkaiah Naidu Wednesday said that the inclusive economic growth was central to development.

Addressing a public event in Hyderabad, Naidu said the government was focusing more on creating jobs and inequalities in opportunities must be removed in order to achieve sustainable development goals.

Talking about the initiatives taken by the government to boost entrepreneurship in the country, Vice President said that initiatives like Skill India, Start up India and Make in India will nurture entrepreneurship in the country.

In a lighter vein he added that there will be no red tapes for entrepreneurs and there will be only red carpets for entrepreneurs.

Appreciating the anti corruption and anti black money measures of the government, Vice President said both demonetisation and implementation of Goods and Service Tax (GST) would augur well for the country in future.

These revolutionary steps would bring more revenue for the government, which can be spent on welfare programmes, he added.

He exhorted the youth to work with courage, competence, confidence and commitment.

While inaugurating the Entrepreneurs’ Organisation Global University Conference 2017 in Hyderabad, Vice President said that the theme of this conference was ‘Jugaad’ or what we can call improvisation and we must to create more opportunities with the scarce resources.
