Adding further, Prime Minister Modi also said during this time that Toys and games affect our mental strength, creativity, economy, and many such aspects, so it is equally important to talk about these topics.
During this, Prime Minister Modi also stated that the global toy market is about $100 billion and we import around 80% of our toys which leads to the outflow of a lot of Indian currency. Hence, this shall be changed and many toys made in India shall be promoted.
