Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], April 13: Extremely illuminative and engrossing sessions are underway as Liqvd Asia and Demostar, in association with the Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI), organize the first chapter of the 'We Made in India - 2024' series at JW Marriott Mumbai Sahar on April 18, 2024. The session promises to be a spotlight on the phenomenal growth of India Inc. over the past decade.
India has embarked on 'Make in India, Make for World' mission and results have already started emerging. According to the 2022-23 export data, Indian exports stood at USD 762 billion. Of this, USD 453 billion came from manufactured goods. 'We Made in India - 2024' aims to harness the spirit of resilience and innovation that defines the great Indian DNA, fostering a platform for ambitious entrepreneurs and enterprises to exchange knowledge, inspire critical thinking and unlock potential.
'We Made in India' will finally emerge into a progressive, multi-city intellectual property, championing the new age of India. Amitabh Kant, former CEO of Niti Aayog and an esteemed G20 'Sherpa' of India during her Presidency year will grace the occasion as the keynote speaker.
Amitabh Kant, who has written a book titled - Made in India: 75 Years of Business and Enterprise - is all for development of the manufacturing sector and the performance linked incentive (PLI) scheme. "PLI says that we will support you year after year for five years but you keep meeting your production targets. If you don't do that you don't get the benefits. But if you get that size and scale, you will become a global player. It's a scheme for making Indian companies think big and become global champions to penetrate global markets," he said recently.
At the same time, Amitabh Kant has been outspoken about the importance of the manufacturing sector. "India cannot only grow on the back of services. It must grow on all cylinders. It has to grow in manufacturing, services, sustainable urbanization, and also agricultural productivity. The challenge for India is that 42% of the population is dependent on agriculture. You need to take this population away from agriculture and put it into manufacturing or good urbanization. Now manufacturing will happen if you are able to penetrate global markets. If you look at India's history, every time we have grown at 8-9%, we have grown when exports have grown, and we have been able to penetrate global markets," he maintained.
"While products manufactured in a country like Germany can be classified as 'crafted to perfection', those built in China can be assumed to be 'affordable', and those from Japan can be called 'of superior technology', what should Indian products be known as? I am sure that speakers at the several sessions during the event will elaborate on this and more," said Arnab Mitra, CEO and Founder, Digiboxx.
The other speakers at the event will include Harsh Jain, CEO and Co-Founder, Dream Sports (Dream11) and Chairman, IAMAI, Anuj Gupta, CEO and Director, Hitachi Systems India, Arnab Mitra, CEO and Founder, Digiboxx and several other entrepreneurs and CEOs.
