How do you see India as an investment destination?
India today presents a great investment destination to any international business, thanks to its large economy, huge consumer market, and abundant skills and talent. What is even more exciting though is the potential. Economists predict it will be the world’s 3rd largest economy and 3rd largest consumer market by 2030. Strengths in manufacturing, digital and IT, and across the economy are increasingly evident and as such it is an extremely exciting place to be.
