Ministry of Commerce & Industry. Sumita has experience of more than two decades in public administration in India and abroad. From the districts of India, to the state government and the government of India, she has worked at all levels of governance in India and developed useful insights. Her postings include working with Ministry of Finance, Govt of India, for six and a half years, which included a tenure of about three and a half years in China, as the head of the economic wing in the Indian Embassy. Her tenure in China has given her a very good exposure to economic, financial and developmental issues in China. Her long years in implementing development programmes in the districts of India, interacting with communities and stake holders, has given her a strong understanding of development needs in India, with insights on strategies for effective delivery of public services. As District Collector in a naxal-prone district in Andhra Pradesh state of India, she had the rare opportunity to work as the highest convergence point for development work for a population of 3.6 million people. Successful outcomes in education and child labour eradication in Karimnagar resulted in the International Labour Organization (N Delhi) publishing a manual written by Sumita on child labour eradication through convergence strategies in May, 2007 for their country project.
