The 10th MSME Convention was virtually organized by All India Management Association (AIMA). During this convention, our institute Hindustan Institute of Management and Computer Studies, Farah, Mathura got an opportunity to join as an academic partner. In this virtual convention, innovative solutions related to micro small and medium enterprises were discussed. At the beginning of the convention, Honorable Minister of Micro Small and Medium Enterprises, Government of India, Shri Nitin Gadkari in his address said that today there is a need of an hour to work on new products and new technology. As part of the self-reliance campaign, we saw that during the Corona period, many people started making sanitizers which was much needed. He said today’s research work should be done for the common man. With the advent of technology, we should make products that are low in cost and unmatched in technology without compromising on quality. Today, MSME has the additional responsibility of providing new opportunities in the rural, agricultural and tribal sectors as India is undoubtedly seen as a growing economic country on the world map and the youth here is the backbone of this country. Therefore, there is an urgent need to strengthen the production sector. He extended his best wishes to AIMA for organizing the convention on this subject.
