to be appointed as President of ACMA, which is the apex body of the Indian Auto
Component Industry. Serving as the Vice President of ACMA for the past one-year
has given me an understanding of the opportunities, issues and challenges being
faced by the auto components industry. Today, the industry is going through an
interesting yet challenging phase. While we have progressed well in the past,
we are now entering the next phase of development, where one is witnessing
several regulatory initiatives that promote lower levels of vehicular
emissions, higher safety standards and greater environment protection.
Considering these changes, as an industry body it is important for us to
acknowledge these changes and gear towards this transformation. To stay
relevant, we will have to acquire or develop relevant technologies at a much
faster pace. I am confident that we will meet these challenges with the support
of the government and our stake holders.”
