Addressing the 74th annual session of Hindustan Chamber of Commerce, Goyal was quoted in an official statement as saying that the government has taken the opportunity amid the pandemic to bring major reforms across sectors.

We have taken the opportunity of Covid to bring about game-changing reforms in agriculture, labour, mining, capital markets and banking, space technology and defence. This will strengthen India and prepare us to engage with the world from a position of strength, he said.
