Modi’s Make in India campaign launched in Indonesia

Jakarta, Sep 25 Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “Make in India” campaign was launched simultaneously here Thursday with some of the top Indonesian companies using the occasion to speak about their investment plans in India, notably in palm oil sector, food processing, textiles and chemicals.

At a panel discussion that followed the launch, led by India’s Ambassador Gurjit Singh, the other sectors identified for investments included construction, smart city projects, IT, auto components and skill development.

“There was a great eagerness among the participants with Prime Minister Modi’s ideas, as Indonesia is also on the cusp of change of government and is looking for similar changes and reforms,” said an official statement issued by the Indian embassy.

“There was also a great interest in the announcements as most of the participants were looking forward to such reforms and resurgence of the Indian economy which is seen as an important partner of Indonesia.”

The guests included representatives of all the leading industry chambers, captains of Indonesian industries, investors in India, heads of multinational corporations, as also several Indian investors in this country.

The panel discussion was moderated by Sachin Gopalan, the chief editor of BeritaSatu Media group, and Iwan Soetrisna and Mufti Hamka Hasan of the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

The ambassador also announced a special window for potential investors to match the single window scheme in India, even as the Jakarta Globe carried his opinion to draw the attention of stakeholders to the rejuvenation of the Indian economy and India’s renewed interest to participate with South East Asia and Indonesia.
