Local made sanitary products of The Lois, Manipur launched
JIRIBAM | Aug 17 : “When we analysed the products which the people of Manipur use from morning to night, it can be said that there are hardly any products made by ourselves. A huge amount of money has been drained away from the economically backward state to meet the daily requirements of essential items,” said Dr Dhabali Thangjam, MD, Babina Healthcare and Hospitality Pvt. Ltd.
Three new household sanitary products called Yumbi Phenyl, Konshine and Cleanext manufactured by The Lois, Manipur, Leimaram, co-founded by Prashant Ningthoujam and Samarendra Shamjetsabam were formally launched today at Manipur Press club. Manipur Times shopping hoisted the programme.
Attending the event as chief guest, MD, Babina Healthcare and Hospitality Private Limited, Dr Dhabali Thangjam said that the state depends on others for every essential item being used from the morn to night, resulting in draining away of a huge amount of money from the poor state. If more entrepreneurs are coming up, such drainage of money can be curbed and thereby boosting up the state economy, she said.
While commending the Lois Manipur for its courageous venture, Dr Dhabali further said that competition with the outside brands and multinational companies which had already dominated the local markets is not an easy task for the local entrepreneurs.
“We need to capture the local market first. In order to do that, we need to maintain quality in our products, followed by price competition plus wide publicity,” Dhabali maintained.
He observed that coming out of more successful entrepreneurs will also help solve the unemployment problem, which is the biggest headache of the state.
Dr. Dhabali assured that all the healthcare and hospitality units under Babina Healthcare and Hospitality Private Limited will start using the products made by The Lois, Manipur.
MIMS, MU, business adviser of Manipur times shopping, Dr. Keshorjit Shorokhaibam who attended the function as president said the biggest challenge of the local entrepreneurs in the state is marketing.
Almost every customer wants the ‘Best quality brand with the cheapest price.’ Success of local entrepreneurs depends on the people of the state, he said.
We often talk of patriotism or nationalism, but none is ready to support the local entrepreneurs and use the products they have made, he asserted adding cooperation among us is the need of the hour
If all the people in the state are ready to use the local made products, our entrepreneurs who are facing market problem will become successful in their venture, he further said.
Local entrepreneurs should not be considered as profit making. The thing which we should value is their service, he continued. “When we support them, they will contribute to the state after sometime,” Dr Keshorjit said. Entrepreneurs are the parameter which decides the national development, he added.
Naorem Prabin, IAS DC Imphal west said lauded the local entrepreneurs for their venture against all odds.
He advised the local entrepreneurs to maintain quality in their products so as to attract more customers. Local entrepreneurs may face hurdles in their initial stage but they will enjoy the fruit of such hurdles someday, he said.
When the “Make in Manipur” venture is successful, the state will no longer be poor, he said while urging the people to support the locally made products.
