This information was given at the FICCI Leeds-2020 online conference with the participation of representatives of 100 countries to know the plans of world leaders on economic growth.

Speaking at the conference, the FBCCI President said, "Since 2006, we have set a unique example of wide-ranging involvement and cooperation in the fields of culture, trade, investment and sports, overcoming all obstacles that could hamper our relationship."
"Our leaders have exchanged views on sustainable development, which is a reflection of our current friendly relationship. We have also seen that during Covid 19, our South Asian leaders have come together to set an example of humanity beyond the borders of South Asia. "
Smriti Irani, India's Minister of Textiles, Women and Child Development, said, "Given the impact of the epidemic, now is the time to rethink our regional economic integration.
