Bloomberg TV India, nation’s leading English business news channel, in strategic partnership with Reliance Broadcast Network Limited and IMS Foundation under the aegis of Laghu Udyog Bharati – Karnataka is organizing the third edition of the INDIA MANUFACTURING SHOW 2014 (IMS 2014) from 11th – 13th September 2014 at Bangalore International Exhibition Centre (BIEC), Bangalore, India.
The launch of third edition of IMS 2014 event will be hosted at Taj West End, Bengaluru on December 18 in the august presence of Vikram Kiloskar, Vice Chairman, Toyota Kirloskar Motor & Vice- Chairman – Advisory Committee for IMS 2014.
Vikram Kiloskar, Vice Chairman, Toyota Kirloskar Motor & Vice- Chairman – Advisory Committee for IMS 2014 said, “The share of manufacturing in India’s GDP is less than what is required for sustainable and inclusive growth. This sector has to grow faster than the GDP to provide jobs at all levels to the young population entering the job market. The only way to grow manufacturing is to make sure that policy makers develop an environment that promotes competitiveness. Investors will give priority for regions, which will help excel their products in Quality, Cost and Delivery. India has a good source of raw materials, manpower and a unique capital goods industry. There are two strategies that we have to focus on: Market India and Factory India. Market India to attract investors to produce products for the vast Indian market, and Factory India to manufacture for export. I am pleased that IMS Foundation is organizing the India Manufacturing Show in September 2014. I am sure that this show will help policy makers look at the initiatives required for Market India and Factory India.”
Krish Gopalakrishnan, Co – Founder & Vice – Chairman, Infosys Ltd, Vidyashankar, Principal Sec. to the Govt. Commerce & Industries Dept., Krishnadas Nair, Hon. President, SIATI & Ex – CMD, HAL and Maheshwara Rao, Commissioner for Industrial Development will grace the event as Guests of Honour.
HVS Krishna, Chairman, IMS Foundation said, “As organizers of India Manufacturing Show, we firmly believe tomorrow belongs to entrepreneurs. Manufacturing sector is the only and permanent solution to our economic lacuna. India as a nation is on the cusp of something really phenomenal, IMS intends to be the catalyst that triggers this metamorphosis. IMS intends to put Indian manufacturing firmly on the global map. The endeavor of IMS is to create huge business opportunities to the Manufacturing Sector.”
Ravi Saneja, Business Head -Pulse, Conference & Exhibitions, Bloomberg TV India, speaking about IMS 2014 said, “We at Bloomberg TV India are happy to co-organise the 3rd edition of IMS 2014.
