“For us, India is one of Nokia’s top 10 high-growth regions.

As a company, We are huge in India,” French told PTI at Nokia’s headquarters on the outskirts of the Finnish capital, Helsinki. “It is a great operation. We absolutely manufacture in India and we are always looking for opportunities to grow our manufacturing presence. We manufacture for the domestic and export market. This is another example of ‘Make in India’,” he said. “Our manufacturing plant in Chennai, spread over 140,000 square metres makes and ships the complete gamut of telecom products (2G, 3G, LTE and Core Networks) for domestic and global markets,” Girotra said.
