Make in India attracts Swedish high-level industry representatives

Make in India Week emphasize the manufacturing industry and is one of Indian Prime Minister Modi’s main reforms, aimed at creating hundreds of millions of new jobs in India. The week in Mumbai attracts 200 exhibitions as well as hosting several seminars and events. Swedish industry is represented by a business delegation and on Saturday, Swedish Prime Minister Löfven inaugurates the Swedish pavilion together with Prime Minister Modi.

India is one of the world’s fastest growing economies, currently in a build-up phase that creates a great demand for innovative solutions. Make in India Week provides an opportunity for Swedish companies to demonstrate their capabilities in a unique setting. In the comprehensive Swedish pavilion, which is inaugurated by Stefan Löfven on Saturday, 11 companies are present.  

Swedish companies have been operating in India since early 20th century, an important factor in a relationship-based culture such as India’s. Creating relevant networks is a crucial element when developing the trade balance between our countries.

-       Swedish companies’ solutions are a great match with the surging demand in India. That is why Make in India is a great opportunity for Swedish industry to showcase what they can do and extend their networks. My hope is that Swedish companies will be an obvious collaboration partner in the growing India, says Ylva Berg CEO at Business Sweden.

Business Sweden has two offices and 30 employees in India. Business Sweden is responsible for the Swedish pavilion and the program for the business delegation. 18 Swedish companies take part and the following companies are exhibiting in Mumbai: ABB, Atlas Copco, Ericsson, IKEA, SAAB, Sandvik, Scania, SKF, TetraPak, Camfil Group and Volvo Buses.
