<b>Wally Olins</b>, Chairman, Saffron Brand Consultants?blur=25

The key issue for India, which I feel very strongly about, is that Indian product and services should very largely be seen coming from India. One of the biggest weaknesses that China has (which India does not have) is that although it has a huge manufacturing base, almost all the brands that the Chinese make are not their brands, but are somebody else’s brands. However, the situation in India is different. The best Indian companies in the world – Infosys, Wipro, Tata and a few others – are all known to be Indian. If you associate that brand with the country of origin, it can have a huge beneficial effect.
