  • As the pandemic is almost in the rearview mirror, the Indian manufacturing industry is ready to bounce back. The Make in India initiative is expected to continue accelerating industry growth, especially on the export side of things. The wind is favorable too. In FY 21­22, exports bounced to Rs. 31.46 lakh crore (Rs. 21.60 lakh crore in FY 20­21), registering a YOY growth of 45.72 percent, which is a historical and probably the highest in recent decades in terms of value and growth percentage. We owe a lot to leaders in the manufacturing sector who drive this growth in exceptional synch with the government. Shining among a handful of such leaders who give life to the Make in India campaign is Kishore Jayaraman OBE, President, India & South Asia, Rolls-Royce. Since assuming office over a decade ago, Kishore has been instrumental in driving strategic focus and significant expansion across Rolls-Royce's Civil Aerospace, Defense, and Power Systems businesses.
