India wants to quadruple electronics biz in just four years


Why India?

I can understand why the Indian government want to copy the success of the electronics manufacturing of their neighbours, but what is going to attract multinationals to choose India over other countries? And/or lead Indian companies to beat well established foreign competitors in global markets? Any current success seems to have been achieved by "encouraging" that electronics for domestic consumption are made in India (tariffs, subsidies, localization requirements, etc) - and attempting to push out foreign companies (tax affairs of Xiaomi, etc) - rather than any inherent advantages in Indian manufacturing. If you want to win at exports, rather than nationalism, you need to be a better choice than your neighbours.
