Alok Shrivastava, Director – Business Intelligence and Planning at Gionee India, talks ‘India Investment Journal’ through the China-headquartered smartphone manufacturers trajectory of growth in the country, its Make in India plans and gaining a competitive edge.
How have Gionee’s Make in India plans progressed since its entry into the market?
The Make in India campaign has opened doors for the companies to build in India. India is one of the most important markets on the global map of Gionee and we have been seeing exponential growth here, which is only set to increase as we progress on our manufacturing plans in India.
Starting from last year, all Gionee devices sold in India have been manufactured in India as well. At present, we are in negotiation with the government. After it finishes, we shall have a fully operational manufacturing plant in Noida, thanks to the government’s support through Make in India campaign.
