Commerce and industry minister Nirmala Sitharaman will be meeting industry leaders, including Boeing India’s Pratyush Kumar and Fortis Healthcare’s Malvinder Mohan Singh, in the next few days as part of the ministry’s renewed push to  investments under ‘Make in India’ and pledge to further improve ease of doing business.

Sources told FE, Sitharaman on Monday met Aditya Birla Group chief Kumar Mangalam Birla.
The renewed efforts to reach out to corporate India and further enhance engagement with various stakeholders assume significance as the country has been struggling to reverse a slide in exports. Outbound merchandise shipments contracted for a 17th straight month through April.

Since the external environment continues to be gloomy, the government is also intensifying efforts to persuade domestic companies to increase investments, said a source.
