Kaur called for more Chinese investment in sectors including railways, telecommunications, retail, construction and automobiles at a seminar on India-China trade, investment and economic cooperation in Zhengzhou, capital of central China's Henan Province.
The Indian government introduced a "Make In India" program in September 2014 to boost manufacturing in the country.
Manufacturing only accounted for 17 percent of India's GDP in 2015, and the government is expected to increase the proportion to 25 percent by 2022, Kaur said. ■
