India-Middle East-Europe Corridor Envisioned as the Future Basis of World Trade, Says PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his monthly “Mann ki Baat” broadcast, underscored the growing importance of the India-Middle East-Europe corridor, envisioning it as the cornerstone of world trade in the coming centuries. Modi expressed confidence that history would remember this ambitious initiative, which originated in India.

Reflecting on India’s rich historical trade connections, Modi drew parallels to the ancient Silk Route, once a vital trade corridor during India’s heyday as a prosperous trading power. He noted that India had proposed the India-Middle East-Europe economic corridor during the recent G20 Summit, signaling its commitment to fostering international trade cooperation.

The Prime Minister also celebrated India’s recent achievements, particularly the successful G20 Summit hosted in the country and the triumph of India’s Chandrayaan-3 mission to the moon. These accomplishments, he remarked, have brought immense joy to every citizen and have been the subject of many congratulatory messages received from the public.

Modi highlighted India’s growing global influence, emphasizing that the world recognized India’s leadership by welcoming the African Union as a member of the G20. He noted the prominence of Bharat Mandapam, the venue for the G20 Summit, which has become a notable attraction with people taking selfies in front of its state-of-the-art conference hall.

As World Tourism Day approaches on September 27, Modi emphasized the importance of tourism as a sector that generates substantial employment with minimal investment. He stressed that India’s increasing goodwill has made it an attractive destination for tourists worldwide. Over one lakh foreign delegates who attended various G20 meetings across India experienced the nation’s diversity and rich heritage.

Modi expressed pride in India’s cultural and heritage recognition on the global stage, with Santiniketan, associated with Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore, and the Hoysala temples of Karnataka recently designated as world heritage sites. India now boasts 42 such sites, reflecting the country’s ongoing efforts to have more cultural and heritage landmarks recognized as World Heritage Sites.

With Mahatma Gandhi’s birth anniversary approaching on October 2, Modi noted the global significance of his ideas and principles. He recalled the homage paid by world leaders at Gandhi’s memorial during the G20 Summit, highlighting the enduring relevance of his teachings on a global scale.

As part of Gandhi Jayanti celebrations, Modi announced a massive cleanliness program called ‘Swachhta hi sewa,’ encouraging citizens to participate in neighborhood and public place clean-up drives. He urged people to support khadi products and emphasized the importance of buying “Made in India” products during the upcoming festival season, promoting the “vocal for local” initiative.
