India is receiving a “massive influx” of foreign investments which will greatly enhance its ability to develop the manufacturing sector and China should “keep calm” and start working on a more effective growth strategy for the new era, a state-run newspaper said on Sunday. “This massive influx of investment by foreign manufacturers is of great significance for India’s economy, employment and industrial development,” an article in the Global Times said.

“China should be calm seeing India’s rise. To cope with competition from India, China could start working on a more effective growth strategy for the new era now,” it said.

The influx of foreign manufacturers is addressing some of India’s weaknesses and enhancing its manufacturing ability, with Chinese companies also playing an important role in the process, according to the article.

“This is a repeat of China’s introduction of foreign investment, which is why it is likely that India may succeed.

“If in the past India lacked capital, a developed manufacturing sector and skilled manufacturing workers, the foreign manufacturing inflow is now helping India address the problem, backing up the government’s ‘Make in India’ initiative,” it said.

The article listed a host of foreign companies including some of the Chinese firms which are investing in India. “It should be pointed out that what is happening in India occurred in China two decades ago.

“Just like what happened with China during its reform and opening-up, the arrival of foreign manufacturing will greatly enhance India’s ability to develop its manufacturing sector, which will help in cultivating a large number of skilled workers, managers and factories,” it added.

    The order if the day is changed that China if want to earn should open up business under make in India programme, and no other go left with them. Both wl grow together is fate else China wl suffer economic losses owing to inability to cater to the needs of the world. Many other countries r prepared to work with India wl b ultimately benefited. Slowly china wl lose India market because if their wary nature.

      What "make in India" Mr. Modi is talking about ? Chinese low quality solar panels are now made by Chinese company, lower quality and lower price. Government has placed huge order for these Chinese panels and Indian companies manufacturing high quality panels are in financial trouble and may shut down. I have seen such destruction of local industries in Australia and now there is hardly any Australian manufacturing industry left. India is heading towards the same fate. Indian industry will be dominated by Chinese. Do we want that kind of "make in India" where Indian industry will be decimated and Chinese will rule ?

        When Chinese admire some country, that country must be very careful and get ready for some serious incident. Keep a sharp eye on Tibet border, China is for some mischief.

            India could have developed neck to neck with China despite foreign investments predominantly into China two decades ago. It was primarily US investors who saw the opportunity to increase their profits due increased labour costs, but, India under a puppet PM was a barrier to itself when it came to economic interests. India is catching up late, but, in times of automation India will leapfrog very quickly. What it took China to accomplish in two decades, India may accomplish within just few years unlike what most think. A bigger challenge for both the countries, in times of automation,would still be creation of jobs proportionate to their populations. An aging China should ideally plan to slow down, and allow the bursting younger generation of India to transition into the role which Chinese have played, until they spontaneously catch up during the next demographic cycle.

              Contd...: This kind of planning has never occurred in the history of mankind, but it seems, time is ripe to think globally, or else, nonsense compe ion could strip the earth of its resources. India may choose an innovative path ( or a hybrid one), an environment friendly one, subscribing heavily into such technologies fueling it's industrial engine, and creating the kind of jobs enmasse which did not exist before. One way or the other, Chinese have to prepare for a rise of India, proportionate to it's demographic needs. Some things which are not stoppable in nature, humans should just go with the flow.

              China is forgetting that Modi is a very tough guy and India has nuclear missiles. If our territory is seriously threatened, there will be nuclear war. India may go but also China. So beware and cool down.

                This is the reality that the Chinese Govt should realise and should not create a bitter relationship with India now.

                  Good idea! Now it looks like a civilised opinion! No rise is good unless it is a peaceful rise!
