But I think it’s important, especially for big business in India, to help build Indian supply chains, to support Indian vendors because, at the end of the day, no country will be strong.”

“If it doesn’t have its supply chain, if it doesn’t have its basic requirements, certainly a large economy, a big nation like India, a nation with the kind of ambitions, and future that we have, it is very, very important that we are ‘Aatmanirbhar’,” he added.

I think that in many ways is the engine for India’s progress,” he acknowledged.

“You are also builders of national strength…that is the largest responsibility that must be in your mind. One of our concerns in the post-reform period has been that while we have concentrated a lot on growth…the fact is it is in our collective interest would argue in your interest that we build deep strengths at home. How many other economies, many other economies all of you admire, have done at their homes,” Jaishankar added.
