Friday, January 04, 2008

India is in look out for a contribution from the NRI's in the country's development process in order to tighten its economic growth and toughen the bonds of the oversea Indians with their mother nation.

In an statement the Union Minister for Overseas Indian Affairs, Vayalar Ravi, said that the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas (PBD) 2008, set to be held in Delhi, would definitely help the NRI's strengthen their bonds with their country of origin.

He further added that Indian communities around the world have expressed their eagerness and pledged their support to the plan for holding the annual flagship event by his ministry at the Vigyan Bhavan from January 7 to 9.

In their campaign to promote tha PBD the minister met non-resident Indians (NRIs) and persons of Indian origin (PIOs) as well as representatives of various Indian cultural and social organisations in the Scandinavian countries, Germany and Switzerland.

The minister, who held a series of meetings in Stockholm, Berlin and Zurich, said he was encouraged by the response from the Indian communities and their interest in the three-day PBD, which will be held under the theme, 'Engaging the Indian Diaspora: the Way Forward'.

The minister conveyed to the Indian diaspora the government's interest in their welfare and in getting them involved in India's economic and social development.

Mr. Ravi also detailed the objectives of the newly-created Overseas Indian Facilitation Centre (OIFC) and the way NRIs and PIOs could benefit from its various programs and services. The OIFC was set up after the 5th PBD last year in cooperation with the CII to promote NRI's investment in India and facilitate partnerships between Indian companies and those of the diaspora.
