‘Parliament must debate slowdown’

The Forum of Free Enterprise (Forum) has called for a special session of Parliament to debate the economic challenges being faced by the country.

The Forum, in a statement, said the session must listen to voices from the key sectors of the economy, including industry and agriculture on what is required to put India on a higher growth trajectory.

It expressed its concern about the economic slowdown, saying this would impact India’s ambition of becoming a $5-trillion economy by 2024. The Forum also exhorted the government to promote skill development expeditiously.
