Prime Minister Narendra Modi and South Korean President Moon Jae-in launched the world's largest Samsung mobile phone manufacturing plant in Noida on Monday. It has a capacity of making 1.2 crore phones a year giving a massive boost to Make in India and digital India.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and South Korean President Moon Jae-in took a metro ride to the world's largest mobile manufacturing unit in Noida. Eager crowds jostled to greet the leaders. The two leaders exchanged notes perhaps on Make in India and Make for India. President Moon and Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the plant after its expansion. It will now produce 1.2 crore phones a month and will employ 70,000 people.

This Samsung unit is the world's largest mobile unit. It isn't a surprise that South Korean giant chose India to set up this unit. There are nearly 40 crore smartphone users here and with Prime minister Modi's Digital India revolution, the number is growing exponentially. 

The two leaders went around the plant and interacted with workers on the floor. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that India's growing economy and the burgeoning Neo Middle Class provides vast opportunities for investment. 

Over the last 4 years, the number of mobile factories have jumped from 2 to 120. More than 50 of these are here in Noida. This has lead to employment opportunities for nearly 4 lakh youth.

 Recounting his govt's digital India push, PM Modi said: Internet data is available at very low rates, fibre network connected to over 1 lakh Gram Panchayats of the country.  All this indicates the ushering in of the digital revolution in the country. 

GeM or Government e Market is enabling the Government to procure commodities directly from producers. 

This has benefitted medium and small entrepreneurs resulting in transparency in public procurement. Be it paying for electricity-Water bills, school college admissions, PF and Pension, nearly all such services are being provided online. Nearly 3 lakh common service centres across the country are working serving the villagers.

Addressing the gathering, South Korean President Moon Jae recalled the decades long relations between India and South Korea and said that India and Korea can are now riding the digital wave to achieve growth.
