While sharing the expectations with KNN India from upcoming new government, President of SIMA, CM Parekh said that the focus of new government should be on MSMEs in order to increase the employment opportunities in nation.
The problem of rising unemployment in nation is the biggest challenge in front of India and needs immediate attention of the government, he added.
