‘India awaits you all’: PM Modi says ‘doors are open’ for companies across the world to invest
India will lead the post-Covid-19 global economic revival, according to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who was addressing the India Global Week 2020 virtual conference on Thursday.
The three-day forum is expected to be attended by 5,000 participants from over 30 countries and will focus on India’s trade and foreign investment prospects, as well as the global economic revival.
In his inaugural speech, Modi said: “India remains one of the most open economies in the world. We are laying a red carpet for all global companies to come and establish their presence in India. Very few countries will offer the kind of opportunities India does today.” He added: “India awaits you all.”
