Narendra Modi’s Make In India vision is probably gaining the momentum as the companies are showing their willingness to put their feet into. The latest fan of this idea is Chinese smartphone maker ‘Gionee.’ The company told that they are planning to start manufacturing in India but waiting for clear policy guidelines from the GoI before getting into the venture.
Gionee’s president William Lu Said:
“It depends on the (government) policy, we are ready to manufacture in India.”
The company manufactures 60 million smartphones in a year in its China facility. He said they would take decision about starting their manufacturing unit in India under Make in India policy once Indian government comes with clear and open policy guidelines.
Gionee India head Arvind R Vohra said:
“It depends at what stage the (Indian) government plans to facilitate manufacturing, as far as we are concerned, we are ready at every stage.We have to find vendors for our produce. If the need is for an assembly line we are ready now but would rather go for deep manufacturing.”
Gionee has a huge customer base of 4.5 million and manufactures 30 million smartphones in a year. The company is planning to increase the output by 45 million in the coming year and up to 75-80 million in next two years. Gionee, last year launched its sub-brand IUNI last year and now they are all set to register in India.
Gionee’s latest smartphone Gionee Elife S5.1 has been recognized as the slimmest smartphone in the world by Guinness Book of World Records.
