Handset Companies See India as a Popular Destination

Global handset makers want India to be the hub for exports, according to reports by ET. Senior industry experts stated about India’s chances of becoming an electronics export at a panel discussion. The experts also advocated that the new national policy could push the matter.

During the third ET India Mobile Conclave, the industry experts shared their views about the matter and discussed on the National Policy on Electronics (NPE) 2019. The event was held in New Delhi on 19th March 2019. According to the experts, India should also focus on catering the international market; assembling to design and pushing further to lift the value chain of manufacturing.

The new policy will assist startups to promote their business and drive end-to-end manufacturing in the country. There were many prominent personalities in the panel in New Delhi; which comprised of Hari Om Rai (Chairman of Lava), Nipun Marya (director of Vivo India), Ajay Mehta (the country head of HMD Mobile India), Carl Ngo (CEO of Mobiistar), Sasikumar Gendham (director of Salcomp Manufacturing India), and Pankaj Mohindroo ( chairman of India Cellular & Electronics Association).

Mr Rai stated that India has the potential to be in an advantageous position because the country has everything to offer for handset makers. Coming to the NPE, he stated that the policy is very promising but it needs to be implemented in reality.

“India has to be built on exports, driven by multinationals and supported by domestic champions,” MrRai was quoted as saying by ET.
