As the grief of various manufacturers in China increases, many of them are planning to come to India and set up their manufacturing base.
An India-centric US business advocacy group has said that Facebook’s $ 5.7 billion investment in Reliance Jio amid Corona virus epidemic shows that foreign companies are confident of the potential of the Indian economy and its growth in the future.
Mukesh Aghi, president of the US-India Strategic and Partnership Forum (USISPF), said that the Covid-19 crisis has given India a great opportunity to raise foreign investment and replace China as the world’s manufacturing hub.
Aghi said, “I am sure that once the Covid-19 crisis is over, India will have the best opportunity to attract hundreds of foreign companies.” He said that this will not only provide employment, but will also bring investment and the Indian economy will speed up.
He said that Facebook’s multi-billion dollar investment in an Indian company amid Corona virus epidemic shows that India is still a highly lucrative market for digital commerce. Aghi said, “The partnership between Facebook and Jio is not only in the interest of both companies, but it will also benefit Indian citizens and consumers. It also reflects the confidence of foreign companies on India’s economy and future growth prospects”.
