CEAI Demands Promotion of Indian Companies within India

New Delhi (From Kishor Diwedi) : The Consulting Engineers Association of India (CEAI) demanded the promotion of Indian Companies within India to fulfil the dream of Atmanirbhar Bharat. CEAI appealed to Central Government to recognise the excellent entrepreneurship skills of Indian engineering professionals and ensure fair competition and equal opportunities under International norms. The Global Business Conclave hosted by CEAI recently in New Delhi in association with Service Export Promotion Council (SEPC), Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India and Council of Architecture highlighted the need to salute and celebrate the talents and credentials of the large pool of Indian engineering professionals and experts earning name and fame across the Globe by delivering World class projects. The Summit deliberated on designing an action plan to make it easy for Indian companies working in construction cum design consultancy and engineering, Architecture and Environmental services to enhance their exports. Particularly the emphasis was pointed on unexplored sectors like construction, which has a huge potential of having 3% of Global GDP.

Delivering Welcome address in the Convention , the chief host and President of CEAI Dr Ajay Pradhan exuded confidence that Indian Engineers have experience and expertise to construct any kind of complex project at any corner of the Earth. When Indian professionals have already excelled in building Nuclear Power Plants, Space Stations and Metro Railways, why MNCs are still being favoured for consultancy in construction of drains, sewer lines and even metro rail also in India, Dr Pradhan exclaimed. Dr. Pradhan appealed to Union Government to take a policy decision to promote Indian engineering professionals and farms within India and push up the boosting of the export of Indigenous engineering services.

Participating in the discussion , Senior Bureaucrats and Distinguished Diplomats appreciated the efforts of CEAI in promoting Brand India in International market. They observed that ample opportunities are there for Indian Service providers to enhance their export services. While focussing on the need of further strengthening Indian presence in Middle East, Africa, CIS Countries and Asia, they suggested that India should be a Member of Inter- American Development Bank (IADB). This membership will pave the way for Indian Companies to secure business contracts funded by IADB in the vast and unexplored Latin American Market, they added.

The Guest Speakers advocated that urgent steps to be taken at Government level to encourage Indian companies to participate in Indian Infrastructure development projects by relaxing the norms of Pre – qualification (PQ) and Joint Venture (JV) in Global bidding process. Unless Indian Companies are patronised in India, the mission and vision of India becoming a Global leader, would not be possible, they cautioned. While welcoming the Government decision to invite bids upto Rs. 200 Crores in service sector through National bidding process only, they stressed on the clarity in defining the definition of Indian companies keeping the ultimate beneficiary in view only to ensure that the bid has to be more effective and fruitful.

The Government officials present in the conclave assured allout support in initiating appropriate actions to increase exports of Indian Companies by strengthening their bases. The invited Guest Speakers include Dr. Abhay Sinha, Amit Sharma, Prof. Abhijit Shirodkar, Chakresh Jain, Senthil Nathan.S, Dr. Dhiraj Kumar Singh, Vishwas Jain, K.K.Kapila, Saroj Khuntia, Rajnikant Agrawal, Samrat Sengupta, Yashas Bhand, M.K.Sunil, Rajneesh Chopra, Rajib Roy, Pankaj Kumar Singh, Sundeep S.Chauhan, Dr. Rajashekhar R. Mathur and Yogesh Kumar Misra.

Kumaran, Indian Ambassador based in Brazil H.E. Shri Suresh K.Reddy, Indian High Commissioner in Tanzania H.E. Shri Binaya Srikanta Pradhan and Indian Ambassador in Japan H.E.
