Hardselling India as an attractive business destination, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today invited Russian CEOs to invest in sectors like aerospace, infrastructure and diamond, and said his government has created a favourable environment to boost economic growth.

He said India’s GDP has clocked an impressive 7.4 per cent growth and the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF) and other international agencies have projected this growth momentum to continue.

Addressing CEOs Forum here along with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Modi said his government is committed to a fair taxation regime and the efforts towards improving the ease of doing business would go on.

He said various indices of the economy, including Current Account Deficit (CAD) and flow of FDI, have been impressive and the aim of his government was to make India a global manufacturing hub.

“We are working towards ensuring best possible infrastructure in India… because of efforts of our government the economy has witnessed sustained growth,” he said, adding “we are committed to ensure a stable and transparent taxation regime.”

Modi said Russia can take advantage of ‘Make in India’ initiative which would help the economies of both the countries.

Russia could play a key role in India’s diamond trade sector, he added.

Speaking on the occasion, Putin said that Indian companies could have better involvement in Russia’s oil and gas sector. The efforts, he added, should be to remove hurdles to ensure better flow of investments from Indian companies in Russia.

Modi said his government’s endeavour would be to ensure “liberal conditions” for Indian investors.

    Mr. Modi is trying his best by working 24/7 to attract FDI as well as off the shelf technology to boost manufacturing in India and in the process also help create jobs in India. Within the next year or two, as ground work on so many of these projects starts, the economy will start to accelerate. Well done!
