Concern Over Indian Procurement Initiative

USCIB recently joined several other associations in a letter to Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh raising serious concerns with new draft proposals regarding procurement preferences for electronic products. These proposals would require that a percentage of all electronic procurements by the Indian government be reserved for domestic manufacturing. The letter identifies the many negative aspects of the policies for India and urges the government to not implement any policies seeking to encourage manufacturing through discrimination or by forcing local content in government procurements.
