Reliance Industries Chairman, Mukesh Ambani, is painting a bold picture for the future of India's economy, projecting it to reach an impressive $40 trillion by 2047, a significant jump from the current $3.5 trillion. Ambani shared this optimistic forecast during his speech at the graduation ceremony of Pandit Deendayal Energy University (PDEU) in Gandhinagar, Gujarat, according to reports from PTI.

He highlighted the importance of adopting clean and green energy solutions to power economic growth without harming the environment.
"At the heart of Ambani's vision is India experiencing an unprecedented surge in economic growth over the next 25 years. He pointed out the critical challenges encapsulated in what he termed the 'Energy Trilemma': ensuring affordable energy access, swiftly transitioning to cleaner energy sources, and shielding the nation's growing energy demands from external volatility," as per PTI.
The seasoned industrialist underscored the pivotal role of transitioning to sustainable energy sources in guiding India towards global leadership in green and inclusive development. Ambani expressed confidence in the nation's ability to find smart and sustainable solutions to navigate the challenges presented by the Energy Trilemma.
In an encouraging message to the graduating students at PDEU, Ambani urged them to be fearless and resolute in their commitment to addressing the climate crisis. "Courage is the ship that can safely sail you across the stormiest seas. You will make mistakes. But don't let that worry or discourage you. Success in life comes to those who learn from their mistakes and persist boldly in their mission," he asserted.
The industrial magnate wrapped up his address with a patriotic call to action, stating, "I am what I am in life because of India, because of Bharat. Wherever life takes you, contribute your utmost to the greatness and glory of India. Recognize that you are truly fortunate to be young in today's India, a nation confidently marching ahead, making the 21st Century India's Century.
