NEW DELHI: The Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) has applauded the statement of Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar that the new government would follow a stable policy regime and time-bound speedy mechanism with transparency.
FICCI also expressed satisfaction on the assurance of the Minister that providing information, entertainment and knowledge to the citizens would be the priority of his Ministry.
“Opening 1000 community radio stations is a good move. This will help in spreading knowledge and information among the common citizens of the country and also will help in generating employment,” FICCI said.
FICCI had earlier met the Minister and shared with him FICCI's 'Policy Roadmap for the Media and Entertainment Sector in India,' comprising key recommendations for the television, film, print, radio, AVGC and live events sectors.
FICCI expressed confidence that the implementation of these recommendations will provide the much-needed boost to the media and entertainment sector, which has tremendous potential for dynamic growth and multiplier effect on employment generation without much spending from the public exchequer.
