India’s digital revolution offers investment opportunities for U.S. companies and investors, the South Asian country’s finance minister said on Wednesday.

“India’s Open Network for Digital Commerce has revolutionised the retail and manufacturing sector,” Nirmala Sitharaman said on Wednesday at a business conference in the Indian capital, adding that this offered business opportunities to foreign companies.

Sitharaman said she envisioned plenty of scope for collaboration in the digital sector between India and the United States.

The federal government was engaged with foreign investors to ease rules for more investments, she said. Sitharaman also said the country was confident of handling the challenge of high inflation and that its economic revival was driven by government reforms.
