A strategy for creating more jobs
There is need to go beyond business as usual to succeed in labour-intensive sectors. The focus of discussion should, therefore, be on what can be done which would make the difference. Macro as well as sector-specific interventions, for making a compelling business case for investment in labour intensive manufacturing are overdue. Sectors with the highest employment potential should naturally be taken up first. Discussion with potential investors would help. Crafting interventions which would work is not going to be easy. But doing nothing is not an option.
