Make in India vs China threat: Update October 2016
India and Indians have started boycotting Chinese products and there is a strong wave against China and Chinese products in social media since last one month. This is an opportunity for “Make in India” and can pave a solid path for encouraging Indian people to use products “Made in India”.
India imports 16% of its necessity from China only. Total imports of Chinese products worth $ 60 billion or Rs. 400,000 crore every year. Whereas it exports goods to China worth Rs. 50,000 crore or $ 7 Billion only. Hence, the trade deficit for us is about $53 Billion per year and this creates a huge imbalance in the economy.
China is a manufacturing hub of the world and India has the capacity to be. At least, India can produce as much as it requires to satisfy the need of its own people. It has started encouraging manufacturing industry and this is time to double or triple the effort.
China has opposed the entry of India in NSG in June 2016. Hence, India could not become a member of the Nuclear Supplier Group despite the support of most of the member countries including the US. This attitude of China created anger among Indians against China, that is further aggravated in September and October following a terrorist attack on the Army base at Uri, India. In the incident, Pakistani hands were clearly visible. However, China continued to support Pakistan. Also, it has blocked Indian appeal in United Nations to declare Masood Azhar a global terrorist. Social media, therefore, in India took the matter hand on hand and started appealing people to boycott Chinese goods.
