“We need to give focus on Make in India, need to manufacture sustainable and qualitative products. We have to become self-reliant in the production of semiconductors. Make in India is the demand of the time,” PM Modi said.
While addressing a virtually post-budget webinar on ‘Make in India for the World’ organised by the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) the Prime Minister said, ‘Make in India’ initiative was “not only the need of the hour,” but it was also “an opportunity to show the world our manufacturing power.”
Underlying the importance of the initiative, PM Modi said, “Our aim is to make India the marketplace for not only ourselves but also for the world based on self-reliance. It will be an effort that will give a boost to manpower and skill development and make us stronger in the times to come.”
“Make in India brings infinite opportunities,” PM Modi added.
The Prime Minister also said that work needs to be done towards building India into a “manufacturing powerhouse.” “Our country has been blessed with manpower and resources that will significantly help in achieving our goals,” PM Modi said.
