Today as we celebrate the International Day of Eradication of Poverty, All India Association of Industries (AIAI), wishes you all poverty free times. We believe poverty is human made and must be curbed by sharing our knowledge, success and positive resources with the needy across the world. Poverty free World is the Dream World for which we all must live and work towards. No one deserves to be poor. Selfishness and greed divide us as the rich and poor.

Dr. Vijay Kalantri, President- All India Association of Industries (AIAI), Chairman- MVIRDC World Trade Center Mumbai while sending wishes on this day, said “Industrial development will quickly resolve the poverty menace by creating entrepreneurs and employment. He says, India enjoyed the unique position as one of the richest nations on earth several centuries ago that has wrongly inspired foreign invaders to wage war on this holy land just to loot our natural, intellectual, cultural and material wealth that were available in abundance. Since the multiple invasions of foreign forces India has been losing steadily the wealth and became one of the poorest nations while we got independence. We have been recovering steadily and became a developing nation through mass industrialization and literacy.

Dr. Kalantri, further elaborated that India has now begun emerging again as a fast- developing nation and will become a developed economy by 2047. We are currently the 4 th largest economy and we will soon reach the 3 rd spot soon and become US$ 5 Trillion economy by 2025. He says India is the fastest growing economy in the world now.

All India Association of Industries (AIAI) is working relentlessly since 1956, mentoring MSME, SME sector in many ways through many political, economic cycles. We believe Women Empowerment will speed up our development exponentially on which we are working hard to mentor women to become financially, intellectually independent. We conduct regular events and expose our industry to international market to boost exports.

We earnestly appeal to all to work hard honestly in the interest of making our Nation self-sufficient, in terms of economy and resources. So, let us eradicate poverty and generate employment.
