Design is one of the key drivers of industrial development, the renewed focus on manufacturing and infrastructure in India has brought design to the forefront as a key factor for industrial competitiveness. The past year saw a newfound interest in design from Government and Industry, propagated by initiatives like Make in India, Smart Cities and Skill India. Design is steadily percolating in the conscience of Industry leaders and shaping Indian business models. The India design book by CII aims to exhibit the key areas where design has seen maximum development and has greatest potential.
