An Indian Expo for the Growth of Indian Electronics Industry

The time has come for the Indian electronics fraternity to deliver on its huge potential. Many in the industry would agree that, after the success story of India’s information technology industry, it is now the turn of India’s electronics industry to take up the manufacturing challenge and prove its worth to the nation.

The government, as you know, is ready to extend its full support to the industry and if India’s electronics industry does not make good use of this opportunity, India will always remain dependent on other countries for its needs. This would be a great drain on India’s foreign exchange resources. As is now being acknowledged, if we continue to import electronics and IT products instead of manufacturing them in India, the foreign exchange we spend on these will exceed what we spend to import crude oil and its derivatives.

“ELCINA had visualised EFY Expo to be a show for promoting the electronics value chain and facilitate manufacturing, innovation, R&D and business development for the sector. There are opportunities aplenty and EFY Expo and ELCINA are committed to bring these to the industry.” says Mr Rajoo Goel, secretary general, ELCINA

The EFY Expo is now in its fourth year, thanks to the support of the electronics industry . Though we have the support of almost all the associations related to electronics in India, ELCINA-Electronic Industries Association of India is playing a very special role in the Expo and the conferences as a Knowledge & Exhibition Partner. The Department of Electronics & IT (DeitY) and, more recently, the Department of Telecom (DoT), Ministry of Communications & IT, Government of India have also played a major role in the growth of the exhibition.

The Electronics For You Expo India 2014 is being held once again at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi, in February, from the 20th to 22nd of the month. Like its previous editions, many new initiatives have been added this year to provide the electronics industry with engagement opportunities and a platform to share knowledge.
