The consistent foreign policy of the Congress has made India expand and diversify its commerce and business base and the country is poised to figure among three top economies of the world by 2030, Union Commerce and Industries Minister Anand Sharma said on Sunday.

Speaking at a seminar on the "Impact of Congress on Foreign Policy" to mark the 125th anniversary of the Indian National Congress here, Sharma said Indian economy had recovered fast from economic recession and its policy of non-alignment had helped in building business and commercial relations with more than two dozen countries.

The Congress led the struggle against colonialism and started the process of decolonisation across the world, he said.

He said the first half of the 20th century belonged to Mahatma Gandhi who led the freedom movement in the country and the second half to Nelson Mandela who inspired the other countries under colonial rule to fight for independence.
