Delivering the keynote address, minister of state for finance, Bhagwat Kishanrao Karad said: “At the outset, I am very glad that ICAI has taken the initiative to host this National Education Summit on Commerce and Accountancy (NES-CA), bringing together Vice Chancellors of Universities, and Commissioner and Secretaries of State Board of Education across India to give a fillip to commerce education in India.”

He further added that "Prime Minister’s vision of creating a “Vishwa Manav” or Global Citizen has been incorporated in the NEP 2020. He emphasized the significance of skill-based education in which more emphasis is given on conceptual understanding vis-a vis rote learning.” He stated that ICAI has developed Model Curriculum 2023 for commerce education at senior secondary level and undergraduate commerce courses titled 'ICAI Exemplar: Preparing Future Ready Commerce Graduates'. I feel that that the uniform Model Curriculum 2023 so designed will significantly enhance the standard of commerce education."
