NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh today assured to remove all barriers to growth and encourage Indian companies to become globally competitive, emulating the Chinese economic model.

"We must think big and think bold. We must move away from paradigm of incremental growth to a paradigm of exponential growth and growth into unchartered territory," he said inaugurating the SCOPE-FICCI-CII Summit of Indian CEOs.

"Our motto should be to do as well as China in terms of growth of GDP, growth of manufacturing, growth of trade and growth of infrastructure," Singh said said hoping that India would become a major economic power house.

Stressing that the country should move towards global scale in manufacturing and services sector, the Prime Minister said the success stories of public and private sector should be replicated so that more and more Indian firms go global.

Assuring to give more autonomy to public sector undertakings, he said "We must strengthen their hands so that they can provide effective leadership and manage public resources more efficiently".

Government has made a clear commitment to empowering PSEs and their managements. "We have already given our commitment to help in the globalization of our Navratnas, especially of firms in strategic sectors like energy. Both the navratnas and other PSEs require competent managerial leadership," he said.
