Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

INVITING 8 MILLION FOREIGN COMPANIES ?


Shri Amitabh Kant ,

Secretary
DIPP
Ministry of Commerce
Government of India

----------------------------------------------------

Dear Shri Kant


MakeInIndia  web site is, indeed , an innovative initiative


But how  to get 8 MILLION Foreign Companies to visit this site  ?

And which 8 MILLION foreign companies  ?

And how to send across this invitation  ?


Here is my suggestion :


*  On........ www.B2BmessageBlaster.com....., we have an online database of 8,000 + International Chambers of Commerce , located in 5,332 cities around the World

*  It would be reasonable to assume that , on an average , each of these Chambers , has approx 1,000 firms as their MEMBERS

*  That adds up to  8,000,000  Member Firms

* After REGISTERING  DIPP  on B2B (  Nature of Organization = " Government Depts / Agencies / Statutory Bodies "  ) ,  Blast  following message ( suitably modified , as deemed necessary ) , to these 8,000 + Chambers

That should take , no more than 2 hours !


If there are any questions , feel free to phone me ( 0-98,67,55,08,08 )

Dear Mr Singh ,


Following is for your consideration


*  "  DATABASE  OF  INDIAN  COMPANIES "


    You may consider providing such a link on MakeInIndia web site ( right at the top , on every page )

    Any visitor , clicking on that link will see a page , as per Attachment A

    Since this is a plain text document , it should take less than a day to upload


*  "  INDIAN  COMPANIES REGISTRATION "


    You may consider providing such a link on MakeInIndia web site

    Any executive ( of an Indian Company ) clicking on that link , will see a page as per Attachment B

    Such registrations will help MakeInIndia to gradually build-up a comprehensive database of lakhs of Indian

    Companies

    In course of time , this database can be made " searchable " by Foreign visitors

If need be , my technical team would be happy to help design the necessary DATABASE STRUCTURE , for this

page

If there are any questions , feel free to phone ( 0-98,67,55,08,08 )

Awaiting your feedback and with regards ,

Dear  Team / MakeInIndia,



Thank you for your prompt response


I await the feedback from Shri Singh


While on the subject , you may wish to consider :


>  On every page of MakeInIndia web site , providing some counters ( such as HISTAT / LIVE TRAFFIC FEED etc , - the kind you find on B2B ) , to give some idea of the traffic . These are  FREE  and take only a few minutes to install


Since MakeInIndia's primary target is Foreign Companies ,"  Live Traffic Feed   " will show you the countries from which your visitors are arriving


>  In fact , it is possible to install separate counters on each page , which show you who / how many visitors visited that particular page ( somewhat like Google Analytics )


>  Using some API ( from Google Analytics ? ) , you may even show to all the visitors , how many minutes did these visitors spend on any particular page , on an average. This will tell you what information , your visitors are MOST interested in

>  One feature which I consider of UTMOST importance , is a 24 hour LIVE CHAT facility with your visitors ( something which Govt of India can easily afford and which will go a long way in establishing a VERY PERSONAL and COMMITTED relationship with your visitors )

>  You may also wish to consider installing a CHAT ROOM ( monitored by ADMIN ) , where visitors can ask questions / share their site-experiences and generally form a COMMUNITY

I have no doubt , implementing above-mentioned features will make a user-friendly MakeInIndia web site

with regards ,

FW: A MISSED OPPORTUNITY ? FW 2698 / 3303 / 3356


Dear Team India :


Some 35 years ago , when I was General Manager ( Powai Works / Mumbai ) , at Larsen & Toubro , I had an opportunity to host a lunch for the Commerce Minister of Canada

After lunch , the Minister pulled out 4 / 5 small , neatly labeled glass bottles from his brief case

Each bottle contained samples of crude oil from different oil fields of Canada

Minister went on to explain :

*      Chemical Composition / Specific Gravity /  Quality of each sample ( eg:  Sulphur content / Sweet / Sour  etc )

*      Daily Output of each field ( Barrels / day )

*      Spot Market prices / Long Term Contract rates

*      Delivery Commitments.... etc


Then , he went ahead to distribute to L&T executives present , brochures of the private Canadian Companies , engaged in exploration / production of Crude Oil in Canada

And answered every single question with the knowledge of an ace SALESMAN of those companies !

There was no doubt , he firmly believed that his primary job while travelling abroad , was to " SELL  CANADA "

Providing on MakeInIndia web site , a page called , " DATABASE  OF  INDIAN  COMPANIES " , may not improve India's rank on " Ease of Doing Business " from 134 to 50 , as desired by our Prime Minister , Shri Narendra Modi , but I have no doubt , it will be the FIRST STEP !

It was with this in mind that , over the past 2 days , I have sent out attached email to some 365 Indian Ambassadors / Consul Generals / Trade Commissioners

Awaiting your early response ,

With regards ,

Dear  Team-India  :


How will history judge us ?

By the opportunities that we grabbed and ran , or the opportunities that we missed out  on ?

Should  MakeInIndia / DIPP , decide to reject my proposal ( attached ) , I will respect their decision

(  In any case , given that I am 81 + years , I may not be around long enough to regret it  )

But it is true that opportunity does not knock twice  !

Carpe Diem  !

MakeInIndia cannot Say


Dear  Ambassador / Consul General / Trade Commissioner  :


As far as  TOURISM / HOSPITALITY  industry is concerned ,

MakeInIndia web site tells us :


    #   In 2012-13 , 6.97 Million Foreign and 1036 Million domestic tourists travelled thru India

    #   India boasts of 30 World Heritage sites but only 10 Foreign Investors in this industry

    #   Industry is expected to grow at 8 % per annum

    #   Government allows 100 % FDI under automatic route


Now try asking MakeInIndia web site (  at Query / FAQ  ), following question :

How many Indian Companies are operating in TOURISM / HOSPITALITY industry ? "

It cannot say  !

Ask the same question to.... www.B2BmessageBlaster.com....


It will tell you that , in India , some 5,309 companies ( located in 173 cities ) are engaged in this industry ( see below )

( - kind of instant answer that Foreign Investors expect ! )


Then  B2B  will also enable any Foreign Investor to send-out his message ( " We are interested in forming a JV with you " ), to a few
or a few hundreds of these Indian Companies , with just a few clicks , in a matter of minutes  !

Leave it to B2B to deliver these email-messages to selected Indian Companies , within 24 hours  !

If there are TOURISM / HOSPITALITY Companies in your Country of posting , who , you believe may be interested in investing in India , B2B will be happy to act as their " GATEWAY  TO  INDIA  "
