Prime Minister Narendra Modi, along with the World Health Organization's Director-General Dr Tredos Ghebreyesus and Mauritius Prime Minister Pravind Jugnauth, laid the foundation stone for the WHO Global Centre for Traditional Medicine (GCTM) in Gujarat's Jamnagar on Tuesday.
PM Modi said the establishment of the traditional medicine centre here would promote the usage of traditional medicine globally.
“The centre will start the age of traditional medicine in the world in the next 25 years,” Modi said, listing various benefits of traditional medicine.
He also thanked the United Nations for accepting India's proposal and declaring 2023 as the International Millet Year.
