President Pranab Mukherjee has advised central public sector enterprises (CPSEs) to collaborate and pool their resources to face and overcome competition, in a globally integrated economy.
Mukherjee, while addressing the Standing Conference of Public Enterprises (SCOPE) Meritorious Awards in Delhi, on Monday said that the financial, technical and manpower resources of CPSEs need to be shared to enable better and more optimal solutions in increasingly customer driven markets. “The exceptional human capital available with CPSEs should be harnessed to develop suitable strategies and interventions which lead to improvement in performance and expansion of operations both in domestic and global markets.”
While drawing attention to the need of taking immediate steps to identify and unlock the surplus land available with CPSEs, the president said the same can be used in generating much needed public investments to boost the economy and increase employment opportunities.
