Balbir Singh, Vice President, Emerson India, was led to say "Globalisation and rapid advances in technology have ensured that today’s manufacturing environment is increasingly competitive. Consequently, manufacturers need to stay focused on finding new ways to design, produce, sell and deliver products. For Make in India to truly take roots and flourish, it must look to improve quality in the manufacturing process, in road and port infrastructure and in the adoption of industry standards and regulations. The Make in India discussions provide a good forum to explore each of these areas.”
