A whopping investment of 5,000 crores is something extraordinary in an Indian scenario. This is probably the first time any enterprise in India stands to invest such a huge amount in a spectrum of three years. Samsung Plant Mega Expansion in Greater Noida is a live example of this. And out of 5,000 Crore, around 1,000 Crore is already spent in terms of infrastructure, development, expansion, technology, automation, and training. Probably for the first time Samsung has got a right partner in State Government to help them in achieving their large goals. And, in fact, for the first time, a state government has been so proactive and smart to take such futuristic steps and help an enterprise to achieve their goals so fast.

That is probably something that was, at one moment of time, on the verge of dropping the idea at Samsung’s end. The previous government was not capable of understanding and coping Samsung. It is good that government changes after every 5 years. Any change brings a lot of new challenges as well as opportunities.
