Narendra Modi and his delegation seemed to have hit a jackpot during their recent tri-country visit to China, South Korea and Mongolia. We are all well aware of our Prime Minister's much ambitious pet project 'Make in India' and now it seems our PM has been able to woo the most amazing smartphone manufacturer to make its magnificent piece called the iPhone in our very own country, India.

If all goes well, Maharashtra would soon become the hub to dish out 'Made in India' iPhone pieces.

According to a report published in the DNA, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, who was also a part of Modi's delegation on the tri-country visit, visited China's Foxconn’s manufacturing facility in the Henan province. Fadnavis later revealed that the state government is in talks with the iPhone manufacturer to set up a manufacturing plant in Maharashtra as well.

Fadnavis seems very enthusiastic about the project and sees it as a great employment opportunity for youngsters of the state and country.

A possible site for this huge investment project could either be Aurangabad or Pune.

Fadnavis also recently spoke about strengthening of ties between Chinese and Maharashtra provinces at the ‘Forum of Leaders of Regions of India and China'. He even took to popular social networking site, Twitter to thank Modi and China's Premier Li for making province to province connect a reality.

Our country is rapidly urbanising, so our PM has unveiled his vision of making smart cities. India’s most urbanised state, Maharashtra has much to contribute to it and thus would welcome Chinese expertise and investment in this sector,” said Fadnavis at the Forum.

He further added, "I would look forward to more Chinese investments in Maharashtra in future. ”

Next on Fadnavis agenda is a special visit to the province of Qingdao in order to learn from Chinese infrastructure development in coastal area.

China is one of the most significant investor in the state of Maharashtra. The country has invested upto $350 million till date in the state.
