In­dia is an un­tapped econ­omy: Nikki

The Pak Banker - - MARKETS/SPORTS -

Gov­er­nor Nikki Ha­ley is bet­ting big on In­dia as she is ag­gres­sively woo­ing com­pa­nies and tal­ent from the South Asian na­tion to set up busi­nesses in the United States of Amer­ica. "In­dia is an un­tapped econ­omy. We wel­come as many com­pa­nies that want to come here. We were pleas­antly sur­prised so many wanted to come to Amer­ica," said Ms. Ha­ley, the first fe­male gov­er­nor of South Carolina and cur­rently the youngest gov­er­nor in the United States.

"Our idea of success is not put the shovel on the ground or cut the first rib­bon. Our idea of success is when a com­pany ex­pands," said Ms. Ha­ley, whose team is mak­ing sev­eral vis­its to In­dia to scout for In­dian com­pa­nies. Ms. Ha­ley, who was touted as a po­ten­tial Repub­li­can vi­cepres­i­den­tial nom­i­nee, said she was look­ing for­ward to In­dian Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi's visit to the United States in June when he would ad­dress a joint sit­ting of the U.S Congress. She said Mr. Modi had the re­spon­si­bil­ity to sell In­dia and cre­ate busi­ness re­la­tion­ship with other coun­tries.

"More im­por­tantly it is not for him to just come here and say that he (Mr. Modi) is an ally. But lot of peo­ple want to know what he is do­ing to spur busi­ness be­tween the two coun­tries," said Ms. Ha­ley.
