At the inauguration of the fifth Global Exhibition on Services-2019 at the Palace Grounds here, he said it is the manufacturing and services industry that will be the growth engines of the Indian economy.

He emphasised that these two sectors need to work together, as without services, manufacturing cannot succeed and without manufacturing, services cannot grow.

According to Goyal, India needs to move beyond Business Process Outsourcing and work towards adopting new age technologies such as artificial intelligence, block chain, machine learning and engage with the rest of the world on equal terms.
