ELCINA members aim to build on past successes to partner Taiwan companies and set up value-added electronics manufacturing joint ventures in India, to cater to local and global markets.
ELCINA has been a pioneer in communicating with the Taiwan ESDM industry since the early 1990s. In 1999, ELCINA signed the first MoU for cooperation with the Taiwan Electrical and Electronics Manufacturers Association (TEEMA), the largest Taiwan association representing the Electronics Manufacturing industry value chain.
The ELCINA delegation to TAITRONICS 2017 participated in a series of high-profile conference sessions, business meetings and industrial visits. These included – Opening Ceremony of TAITRONICS 2017 and Inauguration of the ‘Make in India’ Pavilion, 17th India-Taiwan Joint Business Council Meeting (co-hosted by FICCI – Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry and CIECA – Chinese International Economic Cooperation Association), Taiwan-India Industrial Collaboration Summit, Taiwan-India B2B Meetings, Visit to First Hi-Tech Enterprise Company’s PCB plant, and Visits to various Taiwan Enterprises and Industry Associations engaged in manufacturing and deployment of ‘Smart City’ infrastructure solutions.
Commenting on the visit, Rajoo Goel, Secretary General, ELCINA stated, “We have a strong belief in the fundamental, long term strength of the Indian economy. Our mission is to engage with leading ESDM players from around the world, identify synergies and enter into win-win agreements to give a boost to value-added manufacturing, R&D and sales and marketing of Electronics products and equipment, to cater to the US$ 130 Billion India market as well as the US$ 2.68 Trillion global market. This will not just boost the share of manufacturing in India’s GDP and foreign exchange reserves, it has the capacity to generate employment for large numbers of skilled workers and technicians and transform the overall quality of life of the rural and urban poor in India.”
