LONDON: Vedanta, one of India’s leading multinational groups, and Hon Hai Technology Group (“Foxconn”), the world’s largest electronics manufacturing company, today announced signing an MOU to form a joint venture company that will manufacture semiconductors in India.
This first-of-its-kind joint venture between the two companies will support Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision to create an ecosystem for semiconductor manufacturing in India.
According to the MOU signed between the two companies, Vedanta will hold the majority of the equity in the JV, while Foxconn will be the minority shareholder. Vedanta Chairman Anil Agarwal will be the Chairman of the joint venture company.
The targeted project plans to invest in manufacturing semiconductors. It will provide a significant boost to the domestic manufacturing of electronics in India. Discussions are currently ongoing with a few State Governments to finalize the location of the plant.
The collaboration between Vedanta and Foxconn follows the Indian Government’s recent policy announcement for the Electronics Manufacturing & PLI scheme for incentivizing organizations to contribute towards the development of this sector. This will be the first joint venture in the electronics manufacturing space after the announcement of the policy.
