To open up new export avenues in the People Republic of China, Auto Component Manufacturers Association of India (ACMA), the apex body representing the interest of Indian Auto Component Industry has taken a ten-member CEOs’ delegation to China from March 10th to 13th, 2014.

”ACMA has undertaken several such business development initiatives for the Indian auto components industry in China; the success of which has been a mixed bag,” said Harish Lakshman, President ACMA. “However, with the Chinese automotive market being the largest and the fastest growing in the world and with rising trade deficit between India and China, the Indian auto component industry, with its growing capabilities, is keen to explore prospects of exports to China.”

The delegation, supported by the Embassy of India, CCPIT and CII-Shanghai and led by Lakshman, will visit Shanghai and Chongqing. The delegation comprises CEOs of leading auto component manufacturers, the delegation would explore opportunities to engage with Chinese automotive industry.

During the four days, the delegations will interact with global and Chinese OEMs, Chinese component manufacturers, government officials and local industry bodies to update them on the growing capabilities of the Indian auto component industry as well as further business engagements between the two countries. ACMA delegation will meet CEOs and purchasing heads of leading OEMs, 2-wheelers and passenger vehicles, such as Ford, GM, Volkswagen and Lifan Motorcycles. The component manufactures which will be visited include Faurecia, Corning, TRW, Sokon among others.

In 2012-13, China exported auto components worth $2.4 billion to India while Indian companies exported only $203 million to China.”

Given the poor domestic market condition, auto component industry has been focussing more on exports.

With this, ACMA expects to inscribe positive trade figures and bolster business between both the Asian giants.
