News Delhi, 25 September 2014: Commenting on the launch of the ‘Make in India’ campaign, Sidharth Birla, President, FICCI said “We have embarked on the path for India to become a global manufacturing power. Never before have we seen so much focus and attention on the vital manufacturing sector. This mission is a tribute to millions of entrepreneurs who effortlessly work over years to show that India is a reliable source of high-quality state of the art products that serve demand not only at home but all over the world”.
“FICCI and its entire membership commits itself to the goals set by our Hon’ble Prime Minister to turn India into a manufacturing destination through a ruthless focus on quality and efficiency as well as on reducing the impact on the environment of the production processes deployed”, he added.
“Already, the message given out by the Hon’ble Prime Minister has been relayed in state and global capitals. FICCI will work assiduously to re-inforce this national ambition and bring on board all stakeholders including investors abroad to develop India”, said Mr. Birla.
“To realize this vision, the government and its several constituent arms have put into motion several far reaching changes that have a bearing on improving the manufacturing ecosystem in the country. One of the major steps taken is the setting up of an 8 member specialized team under the aegis of INVEST INDIA – where FICCI is a partner of the Government of India and the States – to address investor issues in a time bound manner” added Mr. Birla.
“As mentioned by the Hon’ble Prime Minister, consistency and stability in government policies is important to build trust between the industry and the government. Integral to developing and maintaining this trust is re-defining the way Center and State governments work by bringing good governance principals to the fore. FICCI has often made this point and we are sure that given the weight put behind this deliverable at the highest leadesrhip level, concrete changes shall be visible on ground soon”, said Mr. Birla
