India invites Czech Republic to invest in manufacturing zones
Mumbai: Commerce and Industry Minister Anand Sharma has invited Czech investment in the proposed national investment and manufacturing zones in India.
Speaking at the inauguration of India Engineering Sourcing Show, in Mumbai yesterday, in the presence of Martin Kuba, Minister for Trade and Industry, Czech Republic, Sharma said the manufacturing sector in India is set to witness rapid growth in the next 10 years.
"Globally, India is ranked as one of the top 10 manufacturers of the world by a recent UNIDO release. India has also been ranked second on manufacturing competence in the 2010 Global Manufacturing Competitiveness Index prepared by Deloitte and the US Council on Competitiveness", he added.
Acknowledging the Czech expertise in the field of engineering sector, especially automotives, Sharma said that "we have designated Czech Republic as part of our Market Linked Focus Product Scheme MLFPS for incentivising our engineering goods export. Czech has reciprocated by identifying India as one of the top 12 countries for future collaborations as part of their Trade Policy."
Sharma informed his counterpart and 100 strong Czech engineering industry delegation that the Government is setting up national investment and manufacturing zone as standalone greenfield industrial townships with world class infrastructure.
He said, under the national manufacturing policy, an attempt has been made to introduce flexibility in labour laws, simplify business regulations, provide fiscal incentives to SMEs and introduce simpler and expeditious exit mechanism.
He said that "India's first ever National Manufacturing Policy has been formulated with the twin objectives of enhancing the share of manufacturing in our GDP from the current low level of 16 percent to at least 25 percent by the next decade and to create 100 million skilled jobs in the next 10 years."
Terming the upcoming Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor, as the biggest industrial infrastructure project in the world at the moment, Sharma informed that 8 of the 12 industrial townships fell under DMIC, with the 900 sq. kms. Dholera Industrial Centre in Gujarat being the largest.
He said Government of India has committed Rs 18,500 crores towards the DMIC Trust with Government of Japan committing USD 4.5 billion towards equity participation.
Emphasising the role played by the engineering industry, Sharma said it represents 27 percent of total factories in industrial sector and accounts for 63 percent of overall foreign collaborations.
Quoting the World Bank study "Unleashing India's Innovations", Sharma said India is fast gaining global recognition especially for its low-cost, high-tech frugal innovation technology.
He said major multinationals are today outsourcing industrial engineering design tasks to India in sectors like semiconductors, automotive hybrid technologies, next gen routers in telecom, power generation equipments, aerospace, avionics and consumer electronics, besides setting up R and D centres in India.

- India’s Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) project will be on the agenda when Indian External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid visits Russia on April 28 for a three-day visit to co-chair the next Indo-Russian Intergovernmental Commission (IRIGC) meeting along with his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov.
A senior Indian official said the April 29 meeting of the IRIGC in Moscow is likely to discuss, the $90 billion corridor of opportunities that India has been hard-selling to foreign investors since past few months.
The IRIGC meeting will discuss a wide range of issues touching virtually every major ministry. Finding ways and means of boosting trade and roping in private sector in both the countries to achieve this task will be very high on the agenda of the IRIGC meeting.
The first time India had pitched for Russian investment in the DMIC project was in October 2012 when the then-External Affairs Minister SM Krishna mentioned the subject during his joint press interaction with the visiting Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin in New Delhi.
The issue has once again come under a sharp focus during Indian Commerce and Industry Minister Anand Sharma’s just-concluded Russia visit. Sharma went on record as saying that he had invited Russian companies to take part in the setting up of “at least one” world-class industrial enclave under the DMIC. Sharma is going to make a laser-beam focus on the DMIC project in June in St Petersburg when his senior officials will be making a power-point presentation to their Russian counterparts to scout for potential Russian investors.
India’s Commerce and Industry Minister did some important spade work on the twin issues of boosting trade and investments with his key Russian interlocutors over the last weekend. Sharma will be in Russia again in June this year when he will be attending the St Petersburg Economic Forum, a high-octane event to be attended by top officials of key economic ministries from both sides.
A unique feature of the forum will be that it will be providing the first ministerial-level meeting to discuss a Comprehensive Economic Cooperation Agreement (CECA) between India and the Customs Union, which has Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus as members. Sharma has said that this will open new opportunities for the growth of bilateral Indo-Russian trade and multilateral relations of India with countries of the Eurasian Economic Community.
“We are keen on expediting CECA talks with the Customs Union. The agreement will cover trade, services and investment, and India will be one of the first countries to sign such a pact with the Russia-led union,” Sharma had gone on record saying this after his engagements in Moscow past weekend.
Why Russia needs to hurry up on DMIC
The Indians have been hard-selling the DMIC project to foreign powers and straws in the wind suggest that major powers like Germany and the UK are going to jump on to the DMIC bandwagon soon.
Incidentally, the DMIC project is being constructed as a collaborative venture with Japan. However, the Japanese aid and investment are virtually a drop in the ocean and India needs more foreign investment in this project. The DMIC project will result in creation of a number of new industrial townships which will be areas of possibilities for cooperation with many foreign partners. RIR had covered the DMIC project extensively here.

The Project envisages, desalinating seawater to make water available for industrial purpose and with the capacity of 336 Million Litre per day (MLD) and will be Asia’s largest desalination plant. Dahej is India’s fastest growing Industrial Region and is facing severe shortage of water. Any further industrialisation in the Dahej Industrial Region is subject to adequate availability of water. This is Asia’s largest Desalination Project with an outlay of Rs. 3600 crores. The project will be executed by HITACHI of Japan & Hyflux of Singapore. DMIC Trust will have 15 % equity into the project.
9.Logistic Data Bank Project for Tracking Container Cargo Movement on Integrated Basis
The project developed by NEC Corporation of Japan to address the issue of tracking and viewing the movement of containers across the ports to the ICDs and end users. The LDB would also provide value added services including comparative metric based analysis. This would enable the Government of India, State Governments, importers, exporters and other stakeholders to assess comparative performance; identify inefficiencies and bottlenecks to develop strategies to ensure the development of the sector.
The project will be implemented through a 50:50 JV between DMIC Trust and Japanese Agency NEC.
The LDB would be an overarching solution that will integrate the information available with various agencies across the supply chain to provide detailed real time information within a single window. LDB can help reduce the transportation lead-time by approximately 5 days which in turn would result in savings of USD 3.2 billion annually by 2017 by virtue of lesser Inventory being carried by the industry.
