#SupplyChains #India needs to work indipendently with #USA and #China to separate the supply chains headed in the two directions and try to shift as much of them as possible to India
3/n #SupplyChains This is the final opportunity for making India a manufacturing hub, & bring manufacture jobs to India. It would be tragic if we miss this opportunity. I suggest that the new Govt appoint a #MOS(Supply Chains)in @PMOIndia to attract Global supply chains to India.
4/n #SupplyChains (1) Improve EODB on Cross Border Trade to top 50 rank (2) GST refund within 3 days for 90% of exports. (3) Replace Specific Tariffs by Ad valorem in Textiles. (4)De-control Agriculture, replace QRs by tariffs & export duty bands. ..5/n
5/n #SupplyChains (5)Reduce Capital(Tax rts, Fiscal-Monetary Twist), (6) Labor laws(4), flexibility, transportability, competition, (7) Land Use laws; Rural land, Chemical Ind CPU (8) Sector problem ID & soln (9) Road shows-USA, China, (10) MOS(#SuCh) (11)Suspend IT0 for 5-10yrs
7/n #SupplyChains: Great opportunity for India's Auto parts Industry, and selective opportunity in General Household goods and Sporting goods
12/n #SupplyChains Opportunity in Electronics (mobile phones, laptops, video games, LCD, CRTs, TVs, VCR, hard discs, ), Toys: bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
15/n #SupplyChains Could #India become a new hub for the Global Semi-conductor industry(#USA, #SKorea, #Taiwan) ? @PMOIndia
19/n #SupplyChains #USA #Innovative & #Bold action by @PMOIndia can move 15% to 30% of these to #India. Will we grab this once in generation opportunity for #MakeInIndia? on.ft.com/2HPCe5A
24/n #SupplyChains #Chinese Trans-shipment through #Vietnam, #Mexico & other cntrys is also to be expected in short term: asia.nikkei.com/Spotlight/Data…
28/n #SupplyChains Avg Export oriented #garment factory in #Bangladesh employs 10x to 50x the workers that the avg Indian #RMG #Indian producer does. Why? => Labor Flexibility, lower SocSec tax on producer: scmp.com/week-asia/econ…
29/n #SupplyChains #Taiwain is a key link in tech supply chains=> Replace Red Tape with Red carpet
34/n Some policy suggestions were made early in 👆🏽thread
35/n #SupplyChains #India has few of the limitations of #Vietnam (size of otential labor force-unskilled, Demi-skilled & skilled) and lacks a few of the advantages(eg inability to dispose of redundant workers) (cc @PiyushGoyal)
31/n Does the #SEZ act amendment 👇🏽represent the first step in incentivizing manufacturing #SupplyChains to move to India?
36/n Deterioration in Global manufacturing ( ) make it more urgent for #India to undertake reforms (4/n, 5/n) for attracting #FDI in #SupplyChains
37/n #SupplyChains Indian Govt must go out & grab these opportunities ( ) by setting up a specialized focused group to contact all such companies & work with them to clear road blocks to shifting production to India!
38/n #SupplyChains #India 🙏🏼 Grab this opportunity please @PiyushGoyal please 🙏🏼
40/n #SupplyChains #CommunistParty ruled #Vietnam is constructing 38 industrial estates, which will fill up with #FDI & thier suppliers in ~2 yrs, while #India remains mired in #BS (=#Bureaucratic #Socialism) 😢: bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
43/n 100 companies waiting for #Indian Industry, exporters & Govt to contact them (#MakeInIndia anyone? 🧐) and lay out the red carpet from China to India?
44/n #SupplyChains on move from #China to #Vietnam . Can we learn anything from it? asia.nikkei.com/Economy/Trade-…
46/n Summary detail from above article
47/n #SupplyChains #CEZ = #Coastal #Employment #Zones are a great idea. 3+2 such zones near #Ports are feasible, 3 almost done, 2 in process. But one could also convert 5 largest SEZ’s (out of 500) in the interior of cntry, near #Airports into #Special #Employment #Zones = #SEZs
50/n If #SupplyChain exit can destroy 1.9 mi jobs in #China ( ) it can also create 1.9 mi jobs in #India, given right labor & tax policies (eg in Coastal Employment Zones #CEZs & SEZs = Special Employment Zones )

India has been pleading with “super power #USA” for 15 yrs, to help strengthen #India’s technological capabilities, so it can independently deter aggression by #China in the Indian sub-continent, & become key US-backed security provider in the Indian Ocean & its littoral (#IOR).
2/indus The logic of competitive strategy(Andrew marshal) shows that its in the best interest of USA to provide strategic technology to India to get best bang out of its military budget, so as to divert PLA attention away from Taiwan which is critical to long term defence of USA
3/indus For example, (1) accelerated development of an SLBM with a range of 5000 km. (2) Capability to detect(24x7) PLRF launches of conventional & nuclear missiles within seconds of launch. (3) Defence production capability(#AND) to sustain a hot war with PLA for > month, (4)…

#IndiaEcon Policy reform must be translated into simpler rules & procedures on the ground, before it translates into production efficiency, investment, job creation and productivity: Well designed & implemented reform, will reboot the economy. ..2/ hindustantimes.com/india-news/reb…
2/rfrm Badly designed reform, like original GST structure (with 10s of Cess), will Not result in greater efficiency or growth. Incomplete reform, like Labour codes, will not generate visibly more jobs, till simple rules, procedures & reporting requirements are put in place!
3/rfrm There are 2 human weakness to beware; Tendency to, (1) “rest on ones laurels” tire & leave things incomplete and/or unattended, (2) Arrogance; In a world of great uncertainty, shocks & big changes, one has to constantly learn and adapt to new threats & opportunities!

Beware Information war by certain sections of the foreign media, including the Hong Kong based media. Sadly there are Indian media, intellectuals and experts, who get easily carried away by such mis-information, instead of expressing scepticism, while reporting it!

51/bbr #StartUps will drive the growth of modern high quality jobs in #India. Union and State Govts must ensure complete de-bureaucratisation of the business environment (eg Labor & land rules) to ensure that this happens at an accelerated pace!
