Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): The Federation of Madhya Pradesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FMPCCI) president Dr Radhasharan Goswami said, “Drone industry will be the next major industry of India like IT and Telecom.”
“We should move away from traditional industries to new industries and should focus on making new products keeping in mind the need of the present and possibilities of the future”, he added.
He said, “Because we have seen that many industries have closed down. The reason why something is in the sick category is because we were not able to do product diversion. There is a lot of potential in the drone industry, for this a "Drone Cluster" is needed.”
