COIMBATORE: The union railway minister, Suresh Prabhu, emphasized the importance of maintaining a country's natural resources and education when it comes to speaking of investments, infrastructure and the intellectual capital. He said that any economic development can be sustainable only if the natural resources are maintained and more people get educated.
Inaugurating the seventh international conference on development policy, which this year, focused on leveraging investment, infrastructure and intellectual capital for Economic Development, at Avinashilingam University on Thursday through video conferencing, he said " Development of any developing country will accelerate the global economy," he said. "Two imperatives that have to be incorporated with investment, infrastructure and intellectual capital is the natural capital of the economy and the human capital," he said.

Expanding further on his statement, the minister said, "industrialization should not deplete the natural resources of a nation and human capital has to be developed to enhance a country's intellectual capital," said Suresh Prabhu. "Education is the only way to develop human capital, so it has to be given importance," he said.
He said making policies for the above is required because "the nation is undergoing positive changes through reforms of the prime minister like the Digital India, Make in India and Swachh Bharat". "The concept of development should be rightly conceived," he advised the students. "All our future innovations should be continuous and sustainable without allowing us to forget our cultural identity," he said.
The conference is being organized along with the Institute of Finance Management (IFM), Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania and Madras Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Chennai. " The outcome of this conference is to provide a framework of strategic co-operation between India and Africa as well as an integrated action for the developed nation," said the chancellor of Avinashilingam University, Dr P R Krishnakumar.
