Modi as­sures re­forms, global CEOs want them quicker

Asian Journal - - Asia -

New York: Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi, dur­ing his meet­ings here with top cor­po­rate lead­ers, has pitched for stronger in­flows of for­eign cap­i­tal into In­dia while as­sur­ing re­forms, prompt de­ci­sions and trans­parency. The chief ex­ec­u­tives were im­pressed but wanted the pace of re­forms to be has­tened. Fol­low­ing an in­ter­ac­tion with the lead­ers in the fi­nan­cial sec­tor in the morn­ing, the prime min­is­ter held two more such en­gage­ments -- an hour-long in­ter­face with the top brass of media and en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try and a 90-minute din­ner meet with 42 of the world’s top cor­po­rate lead­ers. In­dian in­ter­locu­tors said those at the meet­ings were ea­ger to sup­port Modi’s ini­tia­tives -- like on “Make in In­dia”, “Dig­i­tal In­dia”, “Skill In­dia” and “Startup In­dia” -- and also viewed the South Asian coun­try among their top five mar­kets to do busi­ness with.
