The Indian Budget 2023, presented by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on February 1st, 2023, lays the foundation for India’s economic growth in the coming years. With a focus on several key sectors, including manufacturing, renewable energy, defence, energy management, and youth empowerment, the budget is poised to provide a boost for the ‘Make in India’ initiative and attract foreign investment to the country. The budget’s emphasis on skilling programs, employment opportunities, tax incentives, and infrastructure development is expected to provide a conducive environment for businesses to thrive, and for the country’s economy to grow. This article will examine the measures outlined in the budget and the impact they are expected to have on the Indian economy.
One such industry that is set to benefit from the budget is the footwear industry. The budget’s focus on skilling programs and employment opportunities for the country’s youth is expected to provide a large pool of skilled workers for the industry to tap into. This, coupled with the government’s efforts to simplify the business process and reduce the time required for obtaining licenses and clearances, will make it easier for companies like Evertrade to set up operations in India.
Recently Niren Anand moderated a session on “Intervention required to catapult India as a Global Footwear Hub” in Vanijya Bhawan, Delhi in presence of Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal with top executives from Footwear players like Skechers, Bata, Puma, Adidas and many others. At Evertrade, we are a China-based sports footwear manufacturer and have already taken the first step in investing in India by setting up a sports footwear manufacturing facility in Bhubaneswar, Odisha. The company’s decision to invest in India is our commitment and the perfect example of the country’s potential as a hub for the footwear industry. We thank Prime Minister Modi for his vision for Make in India, as well as the active contribution Invest India, and the Government of Odisha did to get our facility ready, which will start its production this quarter.
The budget’s emphasis on tax incentives and infrastructure development is also expected to provide a boost for the footwear industry in India. Tax incentives for companies that invest in the manufacturing sector will encourage more companies like Evertrade to set up operations in India. The government’s efforts to improve the country’s infrastructure, including ports, airports, and highways, will improve the country’s connectivity and provide a better business environment for the industry.
