Assam is evolving into a new gateway to Make in India
Assam borders with 6 North-Eastern states in India and internationally with Bangladesh and Bhutan. Six airports, two inland waterways and one inland container depot connect Assam with major cities of the country and with nearby international cities.
Anchored by robust government support and policies, the state has attracted public and private sector investments of over US$6.9 bn. With the state’s pool of resources and talent, the transparent policies in trade and Ease of Doing Business, Assam is in a position to scout for more opportunities in ASEAN and BBN countries.
We wish, driven by sound policies and good governance, Assam should develop faster and lead the way for Make in India.
The hearsay states that the Indian government is thinking of banning sales of Chinese brand smartphone models in the under-12K segment in India. The article ‘Ban on Chinese Smartphones—will it Benefit India’ discusses how this policy can benefit the Indian brands and push Make in India.
