Last 9 months have been challenging for the entire world. For the MSME sector, in particular, this COVID Pandemic season bought the ultimate question of survival. On such backdrop, policymakers have taken this plunge of coming up policies and schemes which can deliver the much needed support and a push for MSMEs to come out from this challenge.
And since March 2020 we have witnessed high level action around MSME focused policymaking. From Aatma Nirbhar Bharat, to Credit Schemes, to Loan Monotorium and so on. In a nutshell, MSMEs have reached to a strong position on the centre stage of Policymaking. It all came from the top level of policymaking led by our Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi and visionary leadership for MSMEs by Hon’ble Shri Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister for MSME and Road & Trasport Ministry.
For visionary strategies and proactive decision making towards ensuring a smooth fightback from MSMEs, SMEStreet GameChangers Award List has featured Hon’ble MSME Minister, Shri Nitin Gadkari. This is a humble effort from SMEStreet Foundation to recognize the effoirts and will power to revive this sector even in the tough days of pandemic.

“The COVID Pandemic has led to greater global cooperation and collaboration especially in the field of medical supplies and vaccine research. In the fight against COVID, MSMEs hold a key role in restoring economic growth and well being of people. MSMEs have been on the front end of an economic recovery plan by all countries, and hence all efforts are aimed to help MSMEs to come back to normal. Policy initiatives like Aatma Nirbhar Bharat, with a strong focus on restoring liquidity, creating jobs, creating markets for products, and creating a facilitating manufacturing ecosystem all have MSMEs at their focal point,“commented Hon’ble Shri Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister -MSME Ministry, Govt. of India, “I want to congratulate SMEStreet Foundation for taking this initiative to multiply the goodwill impact of leaders who contributed in the fight against the COVID Pandemic.”
