Immediate Past Chair, Dharitri Patnaik addressed the women issues and also spoke about national initiatives of FLO.
Pratap Sarangi, in his address, said that Atmanirbhar Bharat is an age-old practice which was disturbed by foreign invasion. And women-led development will pave the way for Atmanirbhar Bharat, especially in the MSME sector. India is a treasure box of resources and has tremendous potential and capacity to encourage women entrepreneurs in micro and small businesses to cope with and rescue the economy, he further added.
