Union Minster Piyush Goyal on Saturday said the target of making India USD 5 trillion economy is achievable and that all the stakeholders need to work together to meet this objective.

Goyal, who on Saturday unveiled the India Pavilion design of the WORLD EXPO 2020 in Dubai, expressed optimism that India going ahead will have even lower taxes. “We all must work together to see how we can showcase India for attracting investments,” Goyal said, adding that the WORLD EXPO 2020 beginning October next year is a big opportunity to achieve this objective. He said this was the time for the country to engage with every nation and grasp the opportunity that has come its way to become a superpower.
