On occasion, PM Modi related Goa as a new development model and added that underPramod Sawant's chief minister, the state played a lead role in executing central government schemes.

Speaking about the plan, he said that Goa has everything required for the Aatmanirbhar Bharat scheme. PM Modi said, was possible due to the "dual-engine" government, referring to his BJP at the state and Centre.

Prime Minister Modi said that in the upcoming years, the food processing industry would be one of the biggest strengths of the Swayampurna program. "Especially in the field of fish processing, Goa can become the country's strength. India's fish reaches global markets after being processed in east Asian countries. To change this, the fisheries sector, for the first time, is being provided assistance at a large scale," he added.
