Welcome Address was delivered by Dr. R. Chattopadhyay, Chairman, IDA (EZ). Prof. A.K. Bandyopadhyay, Former Vice chancellor of West Bengal University of Animal and Fishery Sciences, Mohanpur, and Chief Guest of the function, encouraged the young entrepreneurs for development of dairy industry and the nation.

Prof. Sen referred to the macro-economic goals emphasized by the policy makers across the world and the principal instruments like monetary policy and fiscal policy employed by the policy makers to achieve the macroeconomic goals for their respective countries. He focused on all such issues related to entrepreneurship which have a distinct bearing on the society and economy of a developing country like India. Referring to the significance of entrepreneurship as a business endeavour in an emerging economy, he stated that entrepreneurs are more often than not seen as creators of businesses, which in turn, produce income and output and generate employment. Entrepreneurship can help in achieving all macro-economic goals like (i) economic growth, (ii) price stability, (iii) social justice and (iv) self-reliance, which constitute an integral part of the macro-economic policy framework of a country.

The program was attended by members of the IDA (EZ) and students from the University of Animal and Fishery Sciences, Mohanpur.
