About the Webinar
Over the last decade, India’s rising manufacturing industry is attracting companies that are interested in moving out of China by building its current manufacturing strengths, supporting global manufacturers and positioning itself in key growth markets of the future.
The benefits of Indian manufacturing are broad- it is a strong center for raw materials, highly skilled technical professionals and close cultural ties with the United States. Politically, the Indian government continues to support manufacturers with its direct financial programs, competitive corporate tax rates, infrastructure improvements, low-cost labor, land-use reforms, access to the domestic India marketplace and free trade agreements with most major markets.
