    More background information:

    India is the world's largest democracy

    The International Monetary Fund's (IMF) World Economic Outlook Update released at Davos February 2019 said that India's economy is expected to grow by 7.5 per cent in the 2019-20 fiscal year, keeping an upward trajectory. India will continue to be the world's fastest growing major economy, the report said.

    There is an improving investment climate in India

    India’s ranking on Ease of doing business has improved 65 places from 142nd in 2014 to 77th in 2018, a record for a major economy. This has happened following a number of large reforms aimed at improving investor friendliness and improving the country’s overall business.

    Fifty-eight Indian companies were featured on the 2018 Forbes ‘Global 2000’ list of the world’s largest most powerful, and valuable publicly listed companies. Forbes uses a mix of four metrics to create its list—sales, profits, assets and market value.India ranks among the top 10 host economies for FDI, according to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) 2018 World Investment Report. In 2018, India saw more than $38 billion of inbound deals. For the first time in two decades, India has been getting more foreign investment than its neighbour China, which has historically been the favourite emerging market. 

    The overall growth of FDI in India is thanks to its many assets, especially its high degree of specialisation in services, with a skilled, English-speaking and inexpensive labour force and a potential market of one billion inhabitants. In January 2018, the Indian government approved a number of major amendments aiming to further liberalise and simplify the national FDI policy.
