Underlining its commitment towards the nation, the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers today inaugurated the second edition of its Annual CSR Conclave in New Delhi on December 21. Aptly themed as ‘Building the Nation, Responsibly’, the Conclave saw all the key SIAM members and other stakeholders coming together to ensure inclusive development of the society, while protecting the environment and ecology. The CSR Conclave was inaugurated by Smt. Anupriya Patel, Hon’ble Minister of State for Health and Family Welfare, Government of India. While addressing the delegates, Smt. Patel highlighted the fact that the auto industry has the potential to reach out to the masses and impact them in a major way. She said, “I urge SIAM to support the National Health Mission and Prime Minister’s endeavour of nation building, Swacch Bharat Abhiyan and Digital India. Automobile Industry is the potential partner in the expansion of reach to the social sector in terms of sanitation and education.” “SIAM should continue with its efforts to educate people on health and safe driving. In today’s rapidly changing world, self-driving cars will soon be a reality. I insist that SIAM should educate the citizens about safety, as well as fuel-efficient cars, in order to ensure a better environment for tomorrow. Auto industry is moving towards responsibly building the nation.” Smt. Patel said while sharing her views on the corporate social responsibilities that the automobile industry is entitled to.
