At the Indo-Swedish Forum at Stockholm, Fadnavis dwelt on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Make In India’ and his own ‘Make in Maharashtra’ initiative.
The chief minister said, “Don’t miss the opportunity to invest in India, especially Maharashtra.”
“I have not come to just count the total investments. But want to impress upon you all to reckon the power of India and Maharashtra. There is a major transformation which we would want you to positively realise and experience.
India is the destination for investors. And Maharashtra can play a significant role in taking ahead the global partnership,” he added.
Maharashtra contributes 15 per cent to the country’s gross domestic product, accounts for almost 30 per cent of the foreign direct investment flows and contributes 30 per cent to the country’s export basket.
