New Delhi: Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has said that more importance will be given to the tourism sector to further strengthen the country’s economy.
Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman presented the Union Budget for the financial year 2023-24 in Parliament today. At that time, his speech said: “This is the first budget of Amrita’s era. This budget is prepared to build on the strong framework created by the previous budgets. It has been prepared keeping in mind how the country should be in the centenary year of independence.
Our economic growth for the current financial year is expected to be 7 percent. This is more than developed countries. This development is possible in the face of challenges like the Corona pandemic and the war on Ukraine. The world recognizes that India’s economy is internationally renowned. Our economy is on the right track amid challenges. Our only goal is to make the future of the country bright.
The government is determined that the benefits of the country’s development should go to the youth, women, farmers, backward classes, SCs and STs.
We have created a unique digital public framework. Aadhaar, Govin, UPI are examples of this. Similarly, we have acted on a massive scale and at an unprecedented speed in delivering the Corona vaccine. Through the scheme brought to ensure that no one should go to sleep without food during the Corona period, steps were taken to provide free food to 80 crore people across the country for 28 months.
Following this, the plan has been implemented since last January to ensure that everyone gets food and adequate food. This program will be implemented throughout the year. 2 lakh crore rupees is accepted by the central government.
India takes leadership of G20 in challenging times. It will give India the strength to change the global economic order. In line with the philosophy that the world is a family, this budget has been prepared with the aim of bringing people-centric programs and facing international challenges and building sustainable sustainable economic growth,” he said.
