Speaking at the Reliance Family Day, which marks the birth anniversary of the group’s founder Dhirubhai Ambani, he said Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) will become one of the strongest and most reputed Indian multinational companies in the world in the coming years, propelled by forays into the clean and green energy sector as well as retail and telecom business reaching unprecedented heights.

“Achieving big dreams and impossible-looking goals is all about getting the right people and the right leadership. Reliance is now in the process of effecting a momentous leadership transition… from seniors belonging to my generation to the next generation of young leaders,” he said.

And this process, he would like “to be accelerated.” The speech was reported by a Mr Ambani-owned news outlet.

“All seniors – myself included – should now yield to the highly competent, extremely committed, and incredibly promising young leadership talent at Reliance,” Ambani said. “We should guide them, enable them, encourage them and empower them… and sit back and applaud as they perform better than us.” He did not elaborate.
