India assures investors of friendly, transparent policy regime

close

Davos:

India today assured global investors that the country's growth story is intact and they can look forward to a stable and transparent policy regime.

"I can see that foreign companies are interested in participating in India's growth story. Foreign partners can be assured of investment with a policy regime that is investor friendly, growth-oriented, open and transparent," Commerce and Industry Minister Anand Sharma told PTI.

He said investments in India are secured and the country offers huge potential.

"During my meetings here with top CEOs of various companies, they have appreciated the recent policy decisions regarding multi-brand retail, civil aviation and banking amendments," he added.

Indian government has liberalised foreign direct investment policy in sectors like retail allowing 51 per cent FDI in multi-brand retail, hiking the cap to 100 per cent in single-brand retail and permitting foreign airlines to buy 49 per cent stake in Indian carriers.

India has recorded a growth of 6.5 per cent in 2011-12 and is expecting an economic expansion of 5.7 per cent in the current financial year. The country has been registering decent growth despite the global economic woes which have pulled down growth in several developed nations.

Top CEOs who met Mr Sharma include Novartis Global head of public and government affairs Petra Laux, BAE Systems chairman Richard Olver and Royal Philips Electronics president and CEO Frans A Van Houten.
