George Town (Malaysia), May 15 (GCBusiness) Despite all odds including a number of criminal cases registered against the Independent Representatives (IRs) and distributors, the prominent Asian Direct Selling company QNET is bullish on the Indian market, setting a target above Rs 800 crore in the current fiscal.
Talking to UNI at the five-day V-Malaysia global convention which culminated here recently, Mr Rishi Chandiok, the Regional Director (South Asia) asserted that though there were so many issues related to Direct Selling Business in India, QNET was making efforts to notch major part of the Indian market.
”The company was now looking at growing its business in healthcare, fast moving consumer goods, luxury and holidays segments,” Mr Chandiok said, adding that the company was looking at more investment following favorable guidelines for direct selling announced by the government.
He said, “We expect 15 per cent growth of sales turnover at Rs 805 crore in the current fiscal. Major growth in healthcare and luxury segments in India is anticipated, which are the most sought after segments.”
Asking about the coercive actions initiated by the Telangana Police, Mr Chandiok said it was “disappointed” by the action taken by authorities which are against the spirit of the Direct Selling Guidelines issued by the Telangana State Government. The company is following each and every guideline issued by the government.
At the Convention Centre, QNET Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Malou Caluza said, ”Events like the V-Convention give us an opportunity to serve our distributors and allow them to experience us at close quarters. We have brought in around 250 staff from all over the world to support us at this convention and give our participants an unparalleled experience.”
”It is also a great platform to celebrate the spirit of entrepreneurship that direct selling companies like QNET spark in millions of people across the globe, enabling them to improve their lives and contribute to their communities,” she added.
With the ultimate goal of providing opportunities of absolute living for everyone, the prominent Asian direct selling company QNET hosted at least 13,000 global entrepreneurs here, the state capital of Penang in Malaysia, providing a great platform to celebrate the spirit of entrepreneurship that direct selling companies spark in millions of people across the globe.
The five-day global convention witnessed the convergence of high-level distributors of QNET from more than 30 countries at the Subterranean Penang International Conference & Exhibition Centre (SPICE) in Penang, one of the 13 states of Malaysia.
