“India’s ability to manufacture complex agro-chemicals and pharmaceuticals, cost effectively, has already established it as a serious contender in specialty chemicals space. To become the next major manufacturing hub for specialty chemicals, India needs to leverage the power of Industry 4.0 via digitalization and embrace sustainable manufacturing practices. The industry also needs to focus on Research and Innovation as a differentiator. A marriage of world class Indian academic talent with abundant entrepreneurial spirit can prove to be a potent combination. I am looking forward to the Speciality Chemicals World Expo 2019 conference where these important topics will be deliberated.”
