Industry bodies must promote ethical practices in corporate governance: Vice President @ 98th Annual Session of ASSOCHAM

The Vice President of India, M. Venakaiaha Naidu has called on Chambers of Commerce of Industries to promote ethical practices in corporate governance, tax compliance and corporate social responsibility among its members. He also asked them to create an environment for whistleblowers to report any wrong doing without any fear.

Addressing the 98TH Annual Session of ASSOCHAM on 16 October 2018, he emphasised the need to adopt zero tolerance towards corruption, bribery and frauds. He also sought such organizations to create an environment for whistleblowers to report any wrong doing without any fear.

Calling them key drivers of India’s growth, the Vice President tasked the business associations to plan for the long term vision to serve the larger interests of the nation. He stressed the need reinvent and reposition to promote trade and commerce effectively in line with the changing global scenario. A country like India cannot implement its welfare agenda without the progress and participation of industry, he said.

The Vice President said that vital structural reforms like the implementation of demonetisation and GST by the Indian government have led to an expansion of the formal economy and brought about increased tax compliance and increased the tax payer base.

The Vice President stressed the need to impart education, skills and foster entrepreneurship among young Indians and said that country must harness the potential of youth and utilise the demographic dividend to better country’s prospects. We must empower the youth to become Job Creators rather than Job Seekers, he added.
