He hailed it as an incredible growth opportunity for Indian manufacturers before the epidemic and that opportunity has multiplied in the last two years. India is expected to contribute about 400 400 billion worth of electronics goods, including 120 120 billion worth of exports, which would be 9-10% of the overall global value chain from a 1-2% chance of current supply. ”

The facility inaugurated by the Minister is Jettown India Pvt. Ltd. of Jetwork Company, which covers an area of 50,000 sq. Ft. And has an innovative lab for developing 16 production lines and products with advanced testers in the factory. Jettown India Pvt. Ltd. is an ODM of the audible and wearable space in India that focuses on design and manufacturing services in the broader IoT domain with single-point comprehensive product lifecycle support. It has teams dedicated to research and development, design, sourcing, assembly and testing
“Aspirations have been reset and we need more companies like Jetwork to make this vision a reality. Their models can be unique and easily scalable. I congratulate Jetwork for this. They can play an important role in achieving our goal of making India a significant player in the electronics GVC, ”added Minister Chandrasekhar.
