外文标题：Xiaomi set to make phones in India
NEW DELHI: China's top mobile phone maker Xiaomi is looking to make devices in India, possibly using the idle plant of Nokia at Chennai. The company, the world's third-largest mobile phone vendor and one of the fastest-growing, has said it is scouting for partners for making phones in India, its second-biggest market.
"We are beginning to explore opportunities for manufacturing in India," Manu Jain, operations head for Xiaomi in India, told TOI. "India is a big market and we would like to be close to our customers."
If the plans fructify, this will be the first instance of a top Chinese device maker manufacturing products in India and would boost PM Narendra Modi's 'Make in India' campaign. Indian cellphone maker Micromax, which earlier only manufactured in China, started making smartphones in India too from April this year.

Just do not buy Chinese. Stop Chinese goods forever. Just think about our boundaries and the Brahmaputra river. Do not let China exploits India.

It will be better if China doesn't enter Indian market.

We should encourage our own Indian companies like Micromax to grow as well. But this is a good news for India, which will create some earning opportunity for some Indians.
