RIL will be among top-20 global firms: Mukesh

Outlines 5 focus areas, urges young leaders to make them a reality

Chairman Mukesh Ambani has outlined five focus areas to put Reliance Industries among the top 20 companies in the world.

Speaking at Reliance Family Day, commemorating the 85th birth anniversary of founder-chairman Dhirubhai Ambani, the RIL chief said: “As we enter our golden decade, we at Reliance are in a unique position to accomplish what very few companies in the world can even dream of. And I have no doubt that the next generation of Reliance will make it a reality. Can Reliance be among the top 20 companies in the world? Yes, we can, and yes, we will,”

Ambani said that as the world transitions from fossil fuels to clean, green and renewable energy, Reliance can become a leading provider of clean and affordable energy to India.

“I believe that the world will invent new materials that will revolutionise how we manufacture and produce things, and improve the quality of life of every human being. Can Reliance be a leading global producer of these innovative new materials? Yes, we can,” Ambani said.

Telecom business

The other area of focus would be the telecom business, where “Reliance Jio has the opportunity to digitally reinvent with artificial intelligence and block chain all sectors of the Indian economy whether it is entertainment, financial services, commerce, manufacturing, agriculture, education or healthcare.”

Addressing more than 50,000 people, comprising employees and their families, Ambani said, “I want today’s young leaders at Reliance to realise that achieving your potential is the quest of the ordinary…conquering the impossible is your destiny.”

Top position

Articulating his dream for a Reliance of the future, Ambani said that in its first four decades the company has already achieved global and national leadership positions in its various businesses and therefore is well positioned to accomplish even greater goals in its golden decade.
