In his acceptance speech, Clyburn noted that in his office he has the image of Mahatma Gandhi on the statues of notable Americans such as Webb du Bois, Lyndon Johnson and Thurgood Marshall. “I’m in my 30th year in the US Congress and my image is hanging around in my office every day. There’s a reason for this and it’s not accidental,” Clyburn said.

President of the SME Council, Sudhakar Gande recognized the work done by the US and Indian governments to revive the economy during these unprecedented times. He especially appreciated Indian Prime Minister Modi’s support for the SME sector, especially because around 70 per cent of employment, and 55 per cent of GDP worldwide is generated by this sector, he estimated.
