At a time when the whole world is coming together to recover from the pandemic and bring growth back on track, a resurgent India is ready to take on the responsibility of being the frontrunner in this revival process, said Minister of Commerce & Industry, Consumer Affairs, Food & Public Distribution and Textiles, Government of India, Shri Piyush Goyal.

“The reforms unleashed in the last seven years by the government under the guidance of Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, and especially during the Corona period, are set to boost the country’s manufacturing and exports potential and make India a global economic hub, besides strengthening its capabilities in the technology space. India is already a leading player in the global markets in IT, Pharma and space technology, and with the development of research and innovation capabilities, the country’s prowess in these areas would help reap the benefits of new-age technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Robotics,” said Shri Goyal.

He added that the lessons learnt from the pandemic have also emboldened our confidence of surpassing any challenge in future with the help of our scientific and entrepreneurial research and development capabilities – whether it is development of pharma and healthcare products or running of the world’s biggest vaccination program banking on the two indigenously produced vaccines, India has set several examples.

From here, productivity will play a big role in achieving a sustained high growth phase, that India has already embarked upon, leaving behind the impact of Corona – GDP growth in the first quarter of FY22 at a record 20.1% against the contraction of 24.4% in the same quarter of FY21 is not only signaling a strong revival but also the potential for economic rebound in a big way, and grow at a rapid pace. We have a huge advantage in our young populace, and with the help of the New Education Policy (NEP), and its focus on skill development, the productivity levels in the country are set to rise substantially to support the growth objectives,Shri Goyal said.

The minister congratulated the UAE leadership for being able to deliver this massive enterprise, EXPO 2020, despite the difficult times. Stressing on the significance of India’s participation in EXPO 2020, Shri Goyal said, “It is happening at a time when India is celebrating 75 years of its independence, and UAE is celebrating 50th year of its foundation. UAE is one of India’s most valued partners and a close friend. EXPO 2020 will prove to be a landmark in strengthening the relationship between the two countries further.”

“The ongoing celebrations of Amrit Mahotsav, 75 years of India’s Independence, will also encapsulate Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s clarion call of redefining India in the next 25 years (Amrit Kaal) with his renewed motto of “Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas and Sabka Prayas”,” he emphasized.

“The entire world is looking towards India as a trusted partner. We have intensified the reform process during the pandemic instead of being defensive and have laid a solid foundation for a sustainable and sustained high growth phase in the coming years. India, with its democratic values, extremely capable talent pool, technological prowess and growing appetite for learning and leadership, is all set to play an increasingly central role in the global affairs, trade and business,” Shri Goyal said.

The minister added that those visiting the India Pavilion during the six months of EXPO 2020, till March 31, 2022, will get a glimpse of the country’s ancient treasures, business achievements, innovations and leading opportunities with cutting-edge technologies.

“We are on the way to reaching and surpassing USD 400 billion exports per year target and a GDP growth that will take us to becoming a USD 5 trillion economy, and beyond. The next 25 years are set to symbolise India’s golden growth phase,” Shri Goyal said, and invited the global community to be part of this resurgent ‘New India’ journey.

“The India Pavilion will showcase a modern, robust India – high on technology, while simultaneously exhibiting the beauty of Indian art, culture and cuisine during the 183 days that the event will run,” he said.

While India-UAE trade has also been impacted by the pandemic, it was valued close to USD 60 billion in 2019-20 with UAE being India’s third-largest trading partner, and UAE being India’s second-largest export destination after the US, with an export value of approximately USD 29 billion in 2019-20.

UAE is also the 8th largest investor in India, having invested USD 11 billion between April 2000 and March 2021. India aspires to make significant progress in catalyzing the investments from UAE to India across the focus sectors, including Gems & Jewellery, Textiles, Pharma and IT.

“Over the years, UAE and India have built a strong relationship that goes beyond economic, cultural and political spheres. UAE has given opportunity to thousands of Indians to build their lives in the country, and Indians on their part have exhibited their expertise and contributed to the collective growth of the nation through several areas, including education, technology and entrepreneurship. Expo 2020 Dubai is set to galvanise this further,” Shri Goyal said.

Oakridge Bengaluru School Principal Pallavi Mishra Speaks on Future of Learning

In its 29 States and 7 Union territories, India has a staggering 20 million schools with 315 million students. Almost two third of these schools are government run and need more focus on professional development for teachers, holistic learning methods for students and technological integration in all aspects of daily school life. The tie up of 30 government schools in Delhi with IB (International Baccalaureate) the beginning of this reformation of schools and can truly accelerate equity in education.

Oakridge International School Principal Pallavi Mishra interacting with IB Students

IB is designed to evoke the curiosity in students about the world around them, thereby creating life-long learners. The curriculum is structured in a way that it exposes students to a wide range of activities, projects and experiences, that develop their personality and prepare them for the competitive world ahead. Right from p.y.p (primary years programme), children learn to approach problem solving in the design thinking method. Once a concept is introduced, it is researched, studied and understood through Math, English and Science. Consequently, children develop a transdisciplinary approach very early on. This habit of scientific investigation is nurtured in m.y.p (middle years programme) through the global contexts and approaches to teaching and learning. In fact, the vertical alignment of the curriculum is quite exception, what begins as unit of inquiry in primary, evolves into interdisciplinary unit and in d.p (diploma programme) it acquires a more formal structure through the extended essay and theory of knowledge. In other words, children are given several opportunities to explore and investigate a big idea in a structured manner with measurable outcomes. And in many ways, this form of learning provides the much-awaited reformation of the traditional Indian schooling system.

What is considered as extra-curricular in the traditional schooling system is embedded in the main academic curriculum and implemented via collaborative student-led initiatives. For instance, Oakridge Bengalurus JMUN (Junior Model United Nations) event is a platform where students speak as country delegates and debate over a host of on-going world issues from food crisis, to global warming and waste disposal. Events like these are one among the many in the IB way of learning, that nurture leadership, public speaking, and problem-solving skills in students

In the words of Sir Ken Robinson (International Advisor on Education) “It is time for an education system that is “flexible“, sees ‘connections‘ between all types of knowledge and provides ample ‘opportunities‘ for different ability groups and talents to flourish.”

Amidst a Drop in Glove Prices – SRAM & MRAM Cements its Place in the Gloves Market

The COVID -19 has reduced its intensity with the onset of the vaccines and stringent lockdown rules imposed by the Countries and Governments all across the globe, but in no way it has stopped completely. Slowly and steadily we are witnessing newer strains regularly, posing a challenge to healthcare authorities across the globe.

 

The world has seen a sea change in its attitude towards businesses and people. The synergies have somehow changed for good or worse. But one thing that stands out is the will to fight against all odds, be it the people or the businesses. One such business that started to thrive in the COVID-19 times is the business of Nitrile and Latex gloves. Almost, the whole world was running from pillar to post to secure allocations from glove manufacturers. Manufacturers doubled and sometimes trebled their capacities to accommodate the sudden surge. With the herd immunity in some locations, the entire demand of gloves peaked. Post that, with the advent of vaccines until the beginning of 2021, the demand suddenly died, resulting in an over-capacity produced lying in warehouses and ports and factories with businesses collapsing. Prices had dropped to almost pre-COVID levels with many businesses almost on the verge of shutting down their shops.

 

SRAM & MRAM Group a conglomerate from the UK, understanding the gravitas, has decided to make the glove business its mainstay. The brand has opted to continue the business against all odds. With its concentration on newer glove products and better marketing strategies, the group has decided to stay afloat in an otherwise shaky environment. The brand has taken such a bold step to continue further. All thanks to the TOP Gloves Corporation Bhd, the leading OEM supplier, world’s largest manufacturer of gloves to help salvage SRAM’s business initiatives in the Gloves market.

 

Special mention has to be made for Tan Sri Dr Lim Wee Chai, the Founder of TOP Gloves for extending his full support and helping in SRAM’s initiatives wholeheartedly. Dr. Hiranandani, Chairman of the SRAM Group conveys his heartfelt gratitude to Tan Sri Dr. Lim Wee Chai and the entire TOP Gloves Team for staying with SRAM and helping SRAM graciously and providing their dedicated support for their business in North America and Europe. With the continuous cooperation of Tan Sri Dr. Lim Wee Chai and his entire team, SRAM is expected to grow in the glove industry.

 

SRAM & MRAM Group was instrumental in launching a wide variety of PPE products and solutions under the brand name of “Walletz4u” to fight the pandemic. Currently, the brand is focusing on gloves of varying specifications, shapes, sizes and contours for varied industries. With the launch of Walletz4u, the group joins the league of the leading players to sell their own brand of gloves across the globe. SRAM & MRAM under its banner is currently looking to create a big foothold on all the premier types of gloves requirements without restricting itself to rubber and latex products.

 

Billionaire and the 8th richest person in Malaysia, Tan Sri Dr Lim Wee Chai, the Executive Chairman and Founder of Top Glove Corporation Bhd, in the year 1991 started with 1 factory and 1 line and has since transformed the brand to being the largest glove manufacturer with a 26% market share across the globe with 50 production facilities and 800 production lines in Malaysia, China, Vietnam and Thailand. The company is also listed on Bursa Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange) and the main board of the Singapore Exchange (SGX).

 

In 2015, Lim completed his PhD in Management from the University of Selangor in Malaysia. He was conferred with an Honorary Doctorate in Business Administration by Oklahoma City University in the United States in year 2016. In August 2018, Lim was conferred an Honorary Doctorate in Entrepreneurship by Management & Science University, Shah Alam, Malaysia. In October 2020, Lim was conferred an Honorary Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) Degree in Business Management by the University of Cyberjaya and appointed as an Honorary Professor of the University. Tan Sri Dr. Lim was awarded the prestigious accolade Master and Country Entrepreneur of Malaysia by Ernst and Young.

 

The company today employs a sizeable number of employees across the globe directly or indirectly and Tan Sri Dr. Lim Wee Chai has made it his personal endeavor to take care of his employees. His philanthropic deeds need special mention as he and his wife donate a substantial portion of their income for the betterment of the community. His wife through her charitable venture Tzu Chi foundation has roped in Tan Sri to become a full-time volunteer for the efforts.

 

In spite of being the Chairman of the largest glove manufacturing company, Tan Sri Dr. Lim Wee Chai has helped new entrepreneurs achieve their due. SRAM & MRAM Group has been at the receiving end of Tan Sri’s graciousness to help take its baby steps, and will always be needing the cooperation and support of Tan Sri Dr. Lim Wee Chai.
