    BEIJING: The best way to turn Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 'Make in India' a success is to absorb sunset industries with low technologies, which China is pushing out, according to an article in the Global Times newspaper, which is one of the organs of the Chinese Communist Party.

    "China's sunset industries are where India's hope lies," the article by Ding Gang, a senior editor of People's Daily, the main organ of the Communist Party, said.

    Hiding the fact that it is Chinese companies that are desperate to relocate their plants to India and other neighboring countries, the article advises the Modi government to learn from China's success in the manufacturing sector.

    China has launched a massive drive to relocate outdated and polluting technologies to neighboring countries including Vietnam, Laos and Bangladesh. It is now looking at India for a possible location because of the advantages made available under the 'Make in India' policy.

    But Chinese companies have faced severe resistance in the form of anti-China riots in Vietnam some months back.

    Leaders and businessmen from different Chinese provinces are visiting India looking for opportunities in sectors like textiles, chemicals, iron and steel, low-end motors and machines. They ran desperate to deal with overcapacity and rising production costs by transferring plants to India and other countries.

    "What India needs is move into products that China has been making but lacks advantages in doing so compared with India. In other words, China's sunset industries are where India's hope lies," the article said.

    It did not mention the disadvantages faced by Chinese industries which include government censure for high-polluting industries, and rising cost of labor, land and components.

    "However, New Delhi's strict control and regulation have set obstacles for Chinese enterprises to enter its market in recent years. For example, some textile firms would rather choose Vietnam, Cambodia and even Myanmar as their investment destinations," the article said.

    "India has a lot of disadvantages in developing its manufacturing industry. For instance, its market has yet to be open enough to foreign capital; it has too many small enterprises and a poorly educated workforce," it said.

    The Chinese desperation is relocating industries was evident as the article said, "Chinese corporations that manufacture these products can bring not only capital and order, but also technologies, managerial expertise, market and support in other arenas".

    This is found by Fattyacids from PDF, and his words:
    Which polluting industry? Another fabricated article by India media. Calling it sensationalism is a understatement, it's complete fabrication. There's no law governing the standard of India media?

    Here's the actual Chinese article.
    China’s sunset industries ripe for India - Global Times
    China’s sunset industries ripe for India
    One of the major measures taken by the Indian government under newly elected Prime Minister Narendra Modi is comprehensively developing the manufacturing industry so that "Make in India," a favorite Modi slogan will occupy an important position in the global production chain as "Made in China" does now.

    Promoting India's manufacturing industry is key to the sustainable development of its economy and also indispensable for this developing country to edge itself into the developed world.

    India has a lot of disadvantages in developing its manufacturing industry. For instance, its market has yet to be open enough to foreign capital; it has too many small enterprises and a poorly educated workforce. The country is also confronted with age-old problems in infrastructure including insufficient power supply and shabby roads.

    Nevertheless, the country also boasts several advantages. As Modi once stated, a large population, especially a massive young population who know English well, and a cheap labor force can contribute to the "Make in India" campaign.

    Despite all these, India's backward manufacturing industry is not a fresh topic, and the strengths and weaknesses stated above have been present for a long time.

    In actuality, India has been longing to beef up its manufacturing industry for over a decade, but failed to achieve substantial results. It has been more empty talk than actual deeds.

    The Indian government has failed to find the key areas that need to be supported by industrial policies, and Indians themselves could hardly make their own advantages clear to potential investors.

    Now with the ambitious slogan and the concrete plan, the Modi administration will be more motivated than before and win more staunch support from the public. What it needs to do now is to find a key point to make a breakthrough.

    New Delhi has to learn from China's experience in this regard. Justin Yifu Lin, a well-known Chinese economist, has put forward a new idea of comparative advantage based on the experience of China's economic development during the past several decades.

    According to Lin, any country has strengths in boosting its own economy, but the linchpin lies in whether it can discover its potential advantages and implement guidelines for industries step by step.

    There is a shortcut for India to recognize its own potential edge: What manufacturing sectors can it take over from China, or what sectors does China expect to or have to transfer abroad?

    The global manufacturing chain has now been fully segmented. What India needs to move into are the products China has been making but lacks advantages in doing so compared with India. In other words, China's sunset industries are where India's hope lies.

    Chinese corporations that manufacture these products can bring not only capital and order, but also technologies, managerial expertise, market and support in other arenas.

    However, New Delhi's strict control and regulation have set obstacles for Chinese enterprises to enter its market in recent years. For example, some textile firms would rather choose Vietnam, Cambodia and even Myanmar as their investment destinations.

    The Modi government has decided to put in place an open policy in 25 sectors including textile, biochemistry, iron and steel, as well as petroleum. But this, however, is far from enough. It needs to adopt more preferential policies toward the Chinese manufacturing industry.

    At present, the key to promoting India's manufacturing industry is not whether it can replace China, but whether it can give full play to its own advantages.

    India should take over some manufacturing sectors from China, just as the Chinese mainland once did from Japan and the four Asian Tigers, namely, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan.

    If India can follow China's steps in a steadfast manner, there is hope that it will surpass the current biggest international manufacturing hub.

    And if the two countries can draw up a plan of comprehensive cooperation in manufacturing, it will exert far-reaching influence upon the changes in the Asia-Pacific architecture.

    And this is my own words, depend on my experience
    1. China’s sunset industries ripe for India - Global Times
    ,it's a good article,“sunset industries” not="poluting industries", it depends on the price of labor,some industries which depend on the labor will hard to live in one country if its labor price becomes higher and higher such as China now,these industries will be called "sunset industries" for this country. Assembled computers bring no polutiong but many jobs.
    2. Never think that other countries will bring their top tech main industries to you, never will happen.
    3. For polution of China main in winter, reason---The fuel,:

    2013 China consumed 3.7 billion tons of coal;
    China's current energy consumption per ton of steel is about 1.3 tons of standard coal in 2013, producing 780 million tons of steel, coal 1.014 billion tons of coal was consumed directly
    Aluminum 5.5 tons of coal per ton of direct consumption, production of 22 million tons of aluminum in 2013, 121 million tons of standard coal in energy consumption directly
    2013 coal production in China 3.7 billion tons, steel and aluminum direct consumption 1.135 billion tons, accounting for30%
    Annual generating capacity of 5.35 trillion kwh, non-fossil energy generation reached 31.6% share of the total installed capacity of fossil The fuel 3.7 trillion degrees, electricity standard coal consumption of 321 g / kWh, the total coal 1.2 billion tons of coal, electricity directly accounted for 32 %
    Consumption of 167.6 billion cubic meters of natural gas, equivalent to 200 million tons of coal
    Oil: 500 million tons
    SO the polution reason for China is steel and Aluminum, Generate electricity,the three sections consumed 50% fuel,so Manufacturing is less and less poluting than your think

    4.In Global production chains,developing countries should find our own opportunities, never Imagine that you can get the topest,highest profit parts, and get CEO degree jobs, this will never never happen, this is childish and Fantasy. Try to find some industries which want to move to other places and other countries, if such industries meet your countries interesting, to capture them and show your advantages to them. JOB, JOB , many full salary JOB is your top interesting.
