Capital Market 

Speaking at a discussion on Fuelling India's Growth Engine: Manufacturing, Amitabh Kant, CEO of NITI Aayog, said that India's manufacturing must penetrate global markets, given that India's market share in global exports is still low.

Kant added that factor market productivity is key for the competitiveness of Indian products and hoped that states would bring in reforms in land and labour markets. He said that needs at least 12 champion states to usher in these reforms. He stressed that Indian companies need to push the limits on innovation in sectors such as defence, electronics and hardware.

Baba Kalyani, Chairman and Managing Director, Bharat Forge, stated said that is competitive in manufacturing with most skill sets widely available and raw material costs no different from the rest of the world. needs better infrastructure rather than incentives, he felt. While the global environment has been a hurdle for exporters, Indian companies must meet the requirements of domestic markets so that imports can be reduced.

Kalyani felt that the Make in brand has successfully established itself globally and it is only a matter of time before companies are able to convert it to an opportunity. In the defence sector, he said that Make in would soon become a reality.

Johan C. Aurik, Global Managing Partner and Chairman of the Board, A.T. Kearney, USA, expressed optimism about India's current economic conditions. He advised that rather than imitate China, should produce for the domestic markets. Technology advances such as robotics and artificial intelligence are having a huge impact on manufacturing, he added.

According to Sanjeev Sharma, Managing Director, ABB India, a robust eco-system exists in and technology absorption is taking place at a rapid rate. With high-end software development and cutting-edge R&D, he expressed confidence about the cost of doing business.
