New Delhi, Aug 21 (IANS) Around 200 young Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) from various sectors will on Tuesday share their vision with Prime Minister Narendra Modi focusing on job creation, income enhancement and good governance.

The CEOs due to meet Modi under the NITI Aayog’s “Champions of Change” initiative include Bajaj Auto’s Rajiv Bajaj, Future Retail’s Avni Biyani and Park Hotel’s Priya Pant.

The two-day event that kicked off on Monday is second in the series. Young entrepreneurs from various start-ups met the Prime Minister last week during another such event and suggested pushing public-private partnerships (PPP).

A senior NITI Aayog official said the young CEOs — divided into six groups — held debates and discussions on Monday on various issues like doubling farmer incomes, Make in India, Cities of Tomorrow, making New India by 2022, world-class infrastructure and reforming the financial sector.

“On Tuesday, they will make presentations to the Prime Minister on action points arrived at during discussions which could be incorporated in the 15-Year Vision Document being drafted by the NITI Aayog,” he said

During the first edition of “Champions of Change” initiative, Modi had announced that the groups formed during the programme could be attached to the ministries concerned to ensure that their ideas were taken forward and implemented.
