Leading industrialists, including Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) chief Mukesh Ambani, Essar Group chairman Shashi Ruia and many other global and domestic CEOs will participate in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's ambitious 'Make in India' campaign launch at New Delhi on Thursday.
The campaign is aimed at making India a global manufacturing hub and creating huge employment opportunities in the country, besides boosting trade and economic growth.
"The Make in India Campaign is one of the key missions of the Government and companies from India and outside are being welcomed to expand and set up facilities for manufacturing in India - for servicing the domestic and global markets. CEOs of important manufacturing companies in India both domestic and MNCs will be present in the function," the official invite sent by the Government said.
Other high-profile CEOs likely to be present at the launch include Chairman of Tata Group Cyrus Mistry; Mahindra Group CMD Anand Mahindra; Biocon CMD Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw; and ITC Chairman Y C Deveshvar; among others.

The campaign will also be launched in countries having similar time zone as that of India.
