China’s Vivo to start producing smartphones in India by October 2015
Shortly after launching their Vivo V1 and V1 Max smartphones in India today, Chinese phone maker, Vivo, has voiced its wishes to start producing devices on Indian soil.
Following the chief executive’s words, it looks like Vivo had long started putting things together towards constructing a plant in the country:
“We are pleased to enter the Indian market. Assembly will start in our India facility in October this year. Looking at the growth prospects, we plan to start research and manufacturing at a later stage,” Vivo India CEO Alex Feng said.
Japan’s Sony and Taiwanese tech company HTC are the two latest firms looking to kick off production in India. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s administration ushered a program called “Make In India” whereby foreign companies are encouraged to locally manufacture their wares within the Southeast Asian nation.
