Mumbai, Sep 21 (UNI) Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar today urged management students to come out with workable eco-friendly and economic recommendations to the Maharashtra Government and the Centre for the mitigation of the severe and recurrent problem of sanitation and human health particularly in the monsoon.
Speaking at the inauguration of the Chanakya Institute of Management Studies and Research here, Mr Pawar stressed the need for having the right management of a desired act in a particular period to implement cleanliness and sanitation in the metros.
He said that cleanliness and sanitation are very important areas of local management and added that these problems are accompanied by the slums for which Mumbai is no exception.
Mr Pawar also said that perishable commodities face severe post harvest losses due to lack of post harvesting and marketing infrastructure and stressed the need for redefining the management approach in these areas to help reap the best advantage.
In order to drive home the maximum advantage from the commercialisation of bio-tech and IT products, management attention should be drawn towards global and national regulatory aspects, particularly the agreements of sanitary and phytosanitary requirements, under the World Trade Organisation (WTO) to achieve efficiency and competitiveness in today's globalised world, he added.
The Union Minister also said that the management studies and research should also lay emphasis on a better understanding of public and private partnership.
