Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal has met Micron Technology CEO and President Sanjay Mehrotra in the U.S. and discussed business opportunities in the growing semiconductor sector in India.
The minister is in San Francisco for the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework meeting.
U.S.-based semiconductor company Micron is setting up India’s first chip facility in Gujarat, which will create 5,000 direct and 15,000 indirect jobs in the coming years.
In June, the government cleared Micron’s project to set up a semiconductor test and packaging unit worth $2.7 billion in the country.
“Met Mr. Sanjay Mehrotra, CEO & President of @MicronTech. Discussed how India’s growing semiconductor ecosystem presents vast opportunities for the company to collaborate & expand its footprint in the country,” Goyal said in a post on social networking platform X on Thursday.
