Following the make in India initiative of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Indian missions around the world have put in great effort to popularize the plan and to attract investors to make the country a manufacturing hub.
The focus of the missions is to familarise the chambers of commerce, potential investors with the “change in India” and the “right investment climate” “easy facilitation of projects” that the country offers, officials told HT. The officials also said the make in India website itself is an “almost a complete platform to know” how to go about investing in India and gone are the days when “information needed to have culled out from different sources” and sent across to people.
Make In India was one initiative that Indian missions popularised in different ways and now the focus is on going further to facilitate the investment for various plans of the government that basically stems from the Make in India campaign, officials explained.
“From automobiles to chemicals to wellness, the new government is seeking investment in many sectors and they need to be publicised abroad”, said an official.
For example, many missions are now focusing on popularising India’s first renewable energy investors meet in New Delhi February 2015 which is proposed to be inaugurated by PM Modi.
This event aims at bringing the global investment community and renewable energy stakeholders in India together and it is expected be attended by over 200 investors and over 1000 delegates. “There was a road show in London about the event. Investors from many parts of the world are being pursued to attend,” said an official.
