New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch a ‘Make in India’ campaign in New Delhi next week at a function that will be attended by about a thousand global and domestic business leaders.

“On 25 September, the Prime Minister will launch the Make in India programme," power minister Piyush Goyal said. According to officials, several top global companies from countries including the US, Japan, Korea, Sweden, Poland, Australia, China, Italy, Germany and France are likely to attend the function.

It is expected that Modi would announce some major incentives for corporates setting up manufacturing hubs in the country. In his maiden independence day address, Modi had invited the global business community to set up manufacturing facilities in India, with the slogan ’come, make in India’. To make it more successful, the campaign would be simultaneously launched in different state capitals including Mumbai, Chennai and Bangalore.

The campaign will also be telecast live at Indian embassies in countries in similar time zones as that of India. The officials also said that prospective investors will be informed about India’s growth story and the steps being taken by the government to improve investment climate here. The move is aimed at generating huge employment, boosting trade and spurring economic growth.
