Mumbai, December 1 2020: To Reboot, Reform and Resurge the economy of Maharashtra in wake of the Coronavirus pandemic, IMC Chamber of Commerce and Industry organized a virtual inauguration of its flagship initiative ‘Mission Engage Maharashtra’. It was inaugurated by Hon’ble Chief Minister of Maharashtra Shri Uddhav Thackeray in the auspicious presence of Shri Subhash Desai, Hon’ble Minister of Industries and Mining for Government of Maharashtra. The Chamber has decided Mission Engage Maharashtra to be its special focus and will work closely with the government to help its efforts to rebuild the economy post COVID and assist in attracting investments, supporting the MSME sector, boosting the agriculture sector and guiding on reforming (policy to enhance) Ease of Living and Ease of doing Business in Maharashtra. Our major committees will work on programmes and seminars to help achieve the same.

Speaking at the occasion, Maharashtra CM, Shri Uddhav Thackeray said, "Maharashtra has been a business-friendly state for decades and despite many states trying to move factories out of it to their own states, the shift isn't going to happen."
"This is because our govt. doesn't just believe in signing MOUs but is also proactive about actually translating it into meaningful employment opportunities. From last year's 60,000 crore, our goal this year is to sign MOUs worth 1,00,000 crore. For this to happen, we are also working on granting a single window clearance to all those who want to set up industries in the state", he added outlining his government's efforts to attract more and more businesses to post COVID.

“India grows when Maharashtra grows. Being one of the most important industrialized states in the country, the economic recovery of the country at large depends on how we bounce back. And we are hopeful that events like this can give right signals to the investors, strengthen rural economies and galvanize medium and small enterprises (MSMEs)”, added Subhash Desai, the minister for Industries and Mining, Govt. of Maharashtra.

During the virtual ceremony, IMC’s Digital Technology Committee has also launched Assess, Recommend, Train (ART) Programme specially designed for MSMEs to help them assess and achieve digital readiness during such times of crisis.

Speaking at the event, Rajiv Podar, President, IMC Chamber of Commerce and Industry said, "Maharashtra is going through its worst crisis ever as it is the worst hit state by the Coronavirus outbreak and we admire the resolute fight that your administration has been giving to the pandemic and maintaining balance between life and livelihood. We believe that in times such as this, the private sector also should play its part to help the government build capacity and resilience for future shocks. There is a need to Reboot- Reform and Resurge the economy. With this in mind, the Chamber has decided Mission Engage Maharashtra to be its special focus this year and will work closely with the government to help its efforts to revive the economy."

IMC’s Expert Committees on Agriculture and Food Processing, Digital Technology, Ease of Living, Health and Fitness, Industry and Trade, International Business, Startups and Innovation and Travel, Tourism and Hospitality will work with the government of Maharashtra on programs and policies to achieve robust and sustainable growth for the state.
