Dr Shashi Tharoor, Hon’ble Minister of State for Human Resource Development released  the  ‘SME Whitebook  2013-14’  in a glittering function in Gurgaon on 10th Dec 2013.  The annual publication is produced by Businessworld magazine and builds upon data sets and information provided by premier industry bodies such as FISME.    The SME Whitebook 2013-14, focusing on rise of the service sector.


Speaking on the occasion Mr. Anil Bhardwaj, Secretary General FISME and author of lead article for the volume said that rise of services could be seen as the only option for the entrepreneurial spirit to flourish as the manufacturing sector faces huge constraints in the country in comparison to services.  Not only are the Services less burdened by both the regulatory constraints and infrastructural bottlenecks, but unlike Goods because of very nature of Services they are not subjected to competition from Imports, he said.
