We believe that boosting the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) ecosystem is critical for transforming the vision of India as a global manufacturing hub into reality. For a country that has rung out the ‘Make in India’ mantra, CeBIT India is an ideal platform to recognize the tremendous potential of Indian MSMEs, and activate exciting opportunities in electronics and software ecosystem from across the globe.” Also as channel partners and distributors are an important part of IT we are also working on looping them in the string.

As the country reverberates PM Modi’s Make in India campaign, it is pertinent to focus upon the critical cogs of this great vision.
