Bhubaneswar: Xavier School of Rural Management (XSRM) will be hosting its annual business conclave, Abhivyakti on Sunday. The conclave aims to provide the students of Rural Management (RM) a comprehensive view on “Rural Business: Impact in Digital Era”, which is also the theme for the event.
India’s rural market is a powerful economic engine. The business organizations are optimistic about the growth of the country’s rural consumer markets and say that it will be faster than the urban consumer markets, given the bounty of available opportunities. With our country rapidly progressing towards becoming a digital nation, we must bridge the gap between rural and urban India. Digital penetration in rural India is slow but definite. Starting from health care initiatives to financial inclusion, to boosting the agrarian economy by developing farmer friendly applications, digital innovations have surely contributed to the process of empowering India by empowering the rural sector. The onset of digital era will bring about a revolutionary change in the rural business sector.
