PM Modi to chair national conference of Chief Secretaries today

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will chair the national conference of Chief Secretaries in New Delhi today. The three-day conference of Chief Secretaries began yesterday. The conference is focused on achieving rapid and sustained economic growth in partnership with the States. More than two hundred people comprising representatives of the Central Government, Chief Secretaries, and other senior officials of States, Union Territories, and domain experts are participating in the conference. It will lay the ground for collaborative action for achieving a Viksit Bharat with a thrust on growth and job creation and inclusive human development.

It will be another key step towards further boosting the partnership between the Centre and the State Governments. The discussion during the conference will be held on six identified themes. These are Thrust on MSMEs, Infrastructure, and Investments, Minimising Compliances, Women’s Empowerment, Health and Nutrition, and Skill Development. The agenda of the conference has been decided after extensive deliberations in over 150 physical and virtual consultative meetings over the last three months between nodal Ministries, NITI Aayog, States, UTs, and domain experts. The first such conference of Chief Secretaries was held in Dharamshala in June last year.
