Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi launched the Make in India initiative on 25 September, 2014 with an aim to give the Indian economy global recognition.

Addressing a gathering consisting of top global CEOs in New Delhi, the Prime Minister said “FDI” should be understood as “First Develop India” along with “Foreign Direct Investment.” He urged investors not to look at India merely as a market, but instead see it as an opportunity.

The Prime Minister said it is important for the purchasing power of the common man to increase, as this would further boost demand, and hence spur development, in addition to benefiting investors.

The Prime Minister said that India is the only country in the world which offers the unique combination of democracy, demography, and demand.
