Under a cluster based approach, the country will be setting up clusters of small-medium enterprises not only in India but outside as well, said bank chairman and managing director Yaduvendra Mathur during the FICCI Banking Conclave here.

Mathur said that the south east Asian countries are the new places of opportunity for Indian businesses to set-up units to rationalise their manufacturing process.

If we add 35 percent (of input for the product) in CLMV, then we are satisfying the WTO and trade agreements to the rules of origin.
