The Federation of Indian Mineral Industries (FIMI) has appointed Mr Sunil Duggal CEO of Hindustan Zinc, as its new President at its annual general meeting on August 14. An industry veteran, Duggal is currently vice chairman of International Zinc Association, co-chair - FICCI Non-Ferrous Metals Committee 2018 and President - Indian Lead Zinc Development Association.
Mr Duggal said that “I have always believed that India is blessed with immense mineral resource. Each and every citizen of this country aligns with ‘Make in India’ vision and to achieve this vision we have to ‘Find in India’. Minerals are a natural wealth for any country, and if utilized in a sustainable manner they can bring prosperity, development and help eradicate poverty. If India has to achieve double digit growth, the contribution of mineral sector needs to be brought to 7-8% of India’s GDP"
He said that “We have a taboo of being an import based economy and we have to turn the tables and make Indian products available for the global economy. India should be a well-established supplier of finished products to the world and for that you need extensive exploration of mineral resources and setting up of ancillary industries to convert these resources into finished products.”
