He expressed the need for new directions for spearheading the manufacturing growth and giving new directions to creating new leadership which can bring about substantive breakthroughs.

The Indian manufacturing sector is undergoing a definitive makeover. The Government of India envisages raising the share of manufacturing in India from 15 % to 25 % of GDP by 2025. This will enable India to capitalize on the growth opportunities and position itself as the Global Engine of growth and the global manufacturing hub of choice.

Professor Shoji Shiba, Chief Advisor, CSM Project, a world known authority on Breakthrough Management and Padma Shri said that visionary Indian leaders are the key to success for Make in India. The CSM project is one of the vital initiatives towards supporting the Government of India’s mission of creating and building the best in class manufacturing and intellectual assets. He announced a further extension of two and a half years towards this programme.

Mr Venu Srinivasan, the Chairman, CII CSM Initiative and past President CII, talked about the various success stories and national projects that the CSM programme has been able to create over the last 9 years. The programme promises high order learnings in the arena of Manufacturing Transformation and visionary leadership for manufacturing. It has four fundamental programmes – Senior managers course, Village Buddha, 1000 Visionary SME’s and Post Graduate Programme for visionary leaders.

Mr Pawan Goenka, ED and Group President, Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd, expressed the need for galvanizing the Indian manufacturing sector. He said that Make in India is not just an initiative of the Government of India but should also be the focus for the industry as the future for India and Indian job market.

Mr Chandrajit Banerjee, Director General, Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) said that ‘we are very grateful for the dedication of Prof Shiba’ to the programme and very appreciative of the nine year support. We welcome the announcement coming  for a two and a half year extension by the Japanese government. “
