2010 President of India, Chief Guest
"There are many complementarities that exist between farming communities and the corporate world, because both are private enterprises. The possibilities of a win-win partnership between agriculture and industry should be fully explored. We must not forget that the food security of India is dependent on the growth of the agriculture. We should aim at enhancing productivity by using better technology and innovative farmingpractices, with the active participation of the Panchayats to usher in a second Green Revolution."
