SAIL must keep pace with new growing companies: Birender Singh

(UNI) Times are changing and SAIL must keep pace with the new and fast growing steel companies, Union Steel Minister Chaudhary Birender Singh said on Friday.

Outlining four mantras for SAIL — Speed, Aggression, Innovation and Loyalty — the Minister said decisions, actions and projects need more speed and marketing.

He said new areas and markets like North-East need to be explored and technology, thinking and working has to be innovative and all this will happen only if those associated with SAIL have loyalty and commitment towards the company and country.

Mr Singh was addressing an event, organised to commemorate the 60 years of the SAIL foundation here.

The Minister exhorted SAIL to invest in research and development, technology development and production of high-grade, value-added steel as these are the priorities of the government and SAIL has a crucial role to play in all these areas.
