Project on Transforming Eastern India’s Economies through Innovative Rural Business Hubs

Overview

The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) works to create and sustain an environment conducive to the growth of industry in India, partnering industry and government alike through advisory and consultative processes.

CII is a non-government, not-for-profit, industry led and industry managed organisation, playing a proactive role in India's development process. Founded over 117 years ago, it is India's premier business association, with a direct membership of over 7100 organisations from the private as well as public sectors, including SMEs and MNCs, and an indirect membership of over 90,000 companies from around 250 national and regional sectoral associations.

CII catalyses change by working closely with government on policy issues, enhancing efficiency, competitiveness and expanding business opportunities for industry through a range of specialised services and global linkages. It also provides a platform for sectoral consensus building and networking. Major emphasis is laid on projecting a positive image of business, assisting industry to identify and execute corporate citizenship programmes. Partnerships with over 120 NGOs across the country carry forward our initiatives in integrated and inclusive development, which include health, education, livelihood, diversity management, skill development and water, to name a few.

Continuing with its development initiative, the Confederation of Indian Industries - Food and Agriculture Center of Excellence (CII-FACE) has collaborated with The United States Agency for International Development (USAID), to improve agricultural productivity and output in eastern India, through the establishment of Rural Business Hubs (RBH). The RBH envisioned in this activity, will function as a one-stop aggregation point for the integration of all elements across a value chain.
