Prime Minister Narendra Modi yesterday interacted with representatives from the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM), the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and several local industry chambers from 18 cities via a video conference to discuss growth and the COVID-19 crisis.

Modi said while the government is working on giving fillip to the pace of growth in the country, an unforeseen hurdle in the form of COVID-19 has arrived.

The challenge posed by the pandemic is graver than even that posed by the World Wars and the country needs to be on a constant vigil to prevent its spread, he said.

Several sectors like tourism, construction, hospitality and daily life engagements in the formal and informal sector have been hit due to COVID-19 and its impact on the economy will be felt for some time to come, an official release quoted the prime minister as saying.

The industry representatives apprised Modi of the steps being taken by them to maintain supply lines of essential items and medical equipment, assistance in creating isolation wards, utilisation of corporate social responsibility funds for combating COVID-19 and provision of assistance to migrant labourers.
