New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday hard sold his government’s latest labour and agriculture reforms, saying they will make doing business in India easier and also give farmers the right to choose their market.
With its vibrant democracy, political stability and business-friendly policies, India offers an unparalleled investment destination for foreign investors, he said in his keynote address at the annual Invest India Conference.
The conference is organised with a special focus on further strengthening business ties between India and Canada.
The government, he said, has implemented reforms in key sectors of education, agriculture and labour with a view to improving participation of the private sector.
“If you are looking to partner in the field of education, the place to be is India. If you are looking to invest in manufacturing or services, the place to be is India. If you are looking to collaborate in the field of agriculture, the place to be is India,” Modi said.
Stressing that “the India story is strong today and stronger tomorrow”, the prime minister said, “We are proactively monetising assets across sectors – airports, railways, highways, power transmission lines.”
