NEW DELHI: UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon Monday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 'Make in India' was a "very good policy" and that the Vibrant Gujarat Summit made the whole world "vibrate with dynamism".

Addressing the 13th Sapru House Lecture organised by the Indian Council of World Affairs (ICWA), Ban said: "'Make in India' is a very good policy to make the country into a manufacturing hub. I saw the possibility in Gujarat in 'Vibrant Gujarat'. I felt the vibrations... the whole world is vibrating with its dynamism."

He suggested that 'Make in India' could be made into "Make it Green in India".

Ban said Modi "gives rightly priority to smart cities", which were central for action on climate change.

He said India was a "driver of peace in the region and world" and that with regard to regional security, the "world is looking to India to advance peace and stability in South Asia".

"A peaceful environment will help India achieve its goal," he said and urged India and Pakistan to "put aside their disputes".
