The MSME ministry launched two special drives, ‘Sambhav’ and ‘Svavlamban,’ to encourage youth entrepreneurship in aspirational districts across the country. This occurred during an international summit on Plastics Recycling & Waste Management, co-hosted by the Union Minister of State for MSME, in New Delhi.

Talking at the inaugural session, Union Minister of State, Bhanu Pratap Singh Verma said, “This Mega Event is an effective platform to bring together the stakeholders and experts to discuss the impact and possible solution for MSMEs and open new business opportunities in the Plastics industry and the Recycling Sector with a great belief in the vision of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan”.

“Recycling plastic is one of the foremost steps towards innovation and sustainability in this industry. Considering the global potential and employment opportunities, the plastic industry will play a major role in the success of the “Make in India” policy of the Government of India, expressed BB Swain, MSME Secretary. 

Emphasising the role of Plastics and Recycling, the President of AIPMA, Kishore P Sampat said, “AIPMA has organized various virtual events with MSME-DIs of different states on Plastic Waste Management and Recycling Technologies to generate awareness and to bring our members up to speed on Extended Producers Responsibility (EPR) and New Plastic Waste Management Policies”. 

“A sustainable, plastic waste management lies in the ability to recover and recycle plastics profitably. There is huge scope for formalizing this sector and vastly improving both the quality and capacity of recycling. This mega-conference would open up many business opportunities for MSMEs in the recycling and waste management sector in the country,” stated Arvind Mehta, Chairman, Governing Council of AIPMA. 

As part of the Iconic Week Celebrations under Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav, the Ministry of MSME is conducting ‘Sambhav’- a National Level Awareness Program (NLAP) through a webinar, from February 28th to March 31st, 2022. The webinar is being run in 1300 colleges across the country through its field offices and organising more than 200 Nukkad Natak in 46 Aspirational Districts under a Special Drive called ‘Svavlamban’ to promote entrepreneurship amongst the youth population and spread awareness on Schemes of Ministry and its Initiatives.

The international summit emphasised, “Know your Waste and how Recycling is the right thing to do, which is to be done in a right way”.

The summit was attended by more than 350 MSMEs physically and more than 1000 MSMEs virtually from all over the country. Besides, international delegates from different countries have the mega summit virtually.
