India can be economically developed by 2020: Kalam
Chicago: India can become economically developed by 2020 if it maintains a GDP of 10-11 percent as there are nine more years to achieve 'Vision 2020' goals, former President A P J Abdul Kalam said.

"We have nine more years for 2020 and if we maintain 10-11 percent GDP we will be economically developed," he said before a gathering of prominent Indian businessmen and social leaders at Indian Consulate here.

Kalam was speaking about the success of Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) and his 'Vision 2020' to make India economically developed by 2020 at the banquet organised by Indian Consul General, in Chicago, Mukta Dutta Tomar in his honour earlier this week.

He said that India's "economic growth must sustain population growth."

Speaking on India-Pakistan relations the former president said he was confident that India and Pakistan can work for people's economic development.
