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?"

With regards,

RE: FW: RE: FW: Make in India Web Portal


Dear Amitabh


I am glad that you liked my suggestions - and thank you for your invite for a discussion with DIPP officers

I plan to visit Delhi , in early Feb 2015 , on a date convenient to you


In the meantime , we plan to upload the following pages / features on B2B web site :

>      Blast Message - Corporate / Industry wise................   12th Jan

>      World - Wide - Wall ..............................................    29th Jan


We have also started compiling  databases of ,


>    Members of Lok Sabha

>   Members of State Legislative Assemblies


I believe , whenever a Foreign Company sends " Interest Message " to some potential Indian Partner Companies , concerned  MPs / MLAs , should also get  Email Alerts

We should involve them in the industrialization of their own constituencies

If they come to know that XYZ foreign company is talking to an Indian Company located in their constituency , they would follow-up / chase various State Departments for early grant of permissions / licenses / no-objection certificates etc

I also read your comments re increasing Exports by 25 %

In India , many SMEs have competitively priced / good quality products , which are " Export - Worthy "

But these SMEs  have no money to advertise in foreign media - online or in print

And , obviously , they have no " Contact Details " ( Email IDs ) of their likely Foreign Buyers , to be able to send out their " Marketing Message "

Through my Promo Emails , I am encouraging them to " Compose " their Marketing Messages and send out to some 8,000 + International Chambers of Commerce ,in 5,332 cities of the World , listed in our online database ( Blast Message - Chambers )

I am suggesting to these SMEs that they " Request " these Chamber Presidents to forward their Message to their Member Firms - may be 8 MILLION foreign companies  !

B2B's message blasting service ( to International Chambers ) is the cheapest way for SMEs to announce the existence of their products /services to the World - just Rs 1,600 / - to reach their message to 8,000 Chambers  !

with regards ,

hemen
