Endowed with vast resources and demographic dividends, India has ample scope of speedy economic growth unlike many other developing countries. Government has taken a slew of measures to boost core industrial sectors of the country.

"Make in India" campaign is one of the several prominent programmes launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2014 for the purpose. Undoubtedly, the "Make in India" programme is all set to take the country's manufacturing industry to an all new level.

However, the success of the "Make in India" dream will see fruition by not just fencing out foreign imports and mandating locally made goods, but achieving competiveness of global standards in products and processes.

Taking Indian manufacturing to the world will thus depend on achieving this competitiveness by developing indigenous technologies, forming a skilled workforce, right investment scenario and supportive government policies, and increase in spending on R&D activities, many of which are yet to be ensured.

Japan has always been major supplier of advanced technologies and solutions to India, be it in manufacturing equipment, automotive segment, high speed railway project, and the Japan Plus project under DIPP that is currently guiding over 100 Japanese companies with investments worth $33.5 billion in India.

The fundamentals of Japan's economy contributed majorly to the growth of its manufacturing and technology sector. Though devoid of resources, Japan took steps in the right direction to evolve as a first line manufacturing and technology exporter of new and quality technology in the world. Accordingly, R&D activities are given priority and significant and steady share of the GDP is spent on it. To put things into perspective, India's expenditure on GDP is staggeringly low around 0.83 per cent, as compared to 3.59 per cent by Japan.
