Good opportunities for Indian small scale Industries in US
Mightyindian | 05 Oct 2010

As per economists, US economy is opening up after recession. It is high time for our small scale sector to take full advantage of this. We can form a group and come here, invest and take advantage of the schemes.

I HAVE been touring United States of America since one year. I have a long 30 years experience in generating self employment in India. I have scanned the market and found that there are round 350 items which can be made and marketed here from India by our small scale sector.

I have tried to motivate young unemployed Americans to come forward to manufacture these items with me giving all practical help to market them in the US and Europe market. The American youth rejected me as they have no guts to start a business. Instead they prefer to work as an employee. The institute meant for generating self employment refused to cooperate with me on a flimsy ground that I am an alien. Non-government organisations (NGOs) in the US are not ready to take up responsibility to help the unemployed to make the product and market them. I heard that US and European Union has a deal where products made in US will get a preferential treatment for selling in European market.

Now US government is providing a scheme that if an alien can bring in investment of five lakh USD (approximately three crores Indian rupees) and can show that this will create job for 10 people then L1 visa will be given.

As per economists, US economy is opening up after recession. It is high time for our small scale sector to take full advantage of this. We can form a group and come here, invest and take advantage of the schemes. NRIs here although a bit nervous, can be roped in. As a matter of fact I am trying to woo them.

Different states government in India should gear up and take this advantage before the Chinese can smell it. I am willing to participate provided I am allowed with five acre land in any state to set up a training cum production centre where I will train youths in India to manufacture the products that are needed in US market make trial marketing and then make arrangement for them to migrate here and set up their own unit with assistance from NRI or American citizens. Our government or banks can partner them also so that we can gain from this scenario.
