We will do what it takes to make it a reality. When we talk of Make in India, we are not just offering a competitive situation to produce but we give you an opportunity to create a huge market for your product. After all, handsome buyer is equally important as cost effective manufacturing. Make in India is a LION’s step that will lead to the growth of manufacturing sector in India on one hand and on the other passing direct benefit to the youth by providing employment & income opportunities. I want Indian companies to become multinational. Indian companies should have their arms elsewhere too. India’s destiny can be changed. I move forward with this confidence. We will pursue this mission by eliminating redundant laws and regulations, making bureaucratic processes easier and shorter, and ensuring that our government is more transparent, responsive and accountable. Our first commitment has been the decision to move ahead by trusting every citizen of the country. We should begin with trust and government should intervene only if there is some shortcoming. Our decision of self-attestation does just that. Our decision on allowing self-attestation is a major example of how we want to restore the trust in our people. The next thing is our Digital India mission. Through this, our Government is committed to remove the chasm between the corporate processes and Government processes. Like ease of business, we also need easy and effective governance. Every person should have his details on the click of a mouse. Entire world is looking towards Asia. I do not need to waste time inviting; I only need to provide an address. India has a unique combination of democracy, demographic dividend and demand. By channelizing these three properties, we can have the entire World come looking for India. For a long time Look-East policy is under discussion. With Look East, we have to Link West. If we connect these two, then with our global vision, we can establish a new platform for our economic structure. The mood of the Nation should be to have the best of the World. We have begun a new level of Centre-State coordination. When we say ‘Make in India’, we are ready to stand with the States as a facilitator to capture global market. ‘Make in India’ is not a mere slogan or an invitation, it is our responsibility. ************************************************************************
