Manu Kumar Jain, xiaomi India executive, says the company is also able to grow its export business quickly thanks to more government incentives. To become a global manufacturing hub, India needs to compete more with places like Vietnam and China. India will be able to make the most of this with attractive, stable export-oriented policies and better infrastructure and logistics networks.

The Chinese smartphone maker is understood to have begun small-scale export tests of Indian-made smartphones in Bangladesh and Nepal.
Support policies are limited, such as export tax rebates, but Jain said in an interview with IANS that he has asked the government to make India a more export-friendly place.
After all, India can learn a lot from Vietnam in stimulating domestic manufacturing. In addition, since BIS is not a globally recognized standard, they can also invest in global standard testing laboratories.
Earlier, India had announced a ‘export exemption’ (RoDTEP) to replace the ‘India Planned Goods Exports’ (MEIS) policy, which does not comply with WTO rules.
There are many hurdles around RoDTEP that need to be cleared before the final goal is reached. But With more government incentives, Xiaomi can quickly expand exports, says Jain.
We can now produce 3 smart machines per second, but as our production capacity continues to grow, we will be able to meet our growing product demand.
