Vibrant Gujarat Summit: Narendra Modi goes all out to win over investors

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday made a strong pitch to investors promising to make India an easier place to do business with a stable tax regime and assuring them the government ‘will be available to hold your hand whenever you need us’.

“The World Bank chairman had said that if India improves its place from its abysmal ranking beyond 150, it would reap rich dividends. Let me assure him that we would work to come within the first 50 countries in this respect,” Modi said.

The Prime Minister defended the recent amendments to the Land Acquisition Bill saying they would facilitate development in remote areas while ensuring better returns for the farming community. Going forward, Modi said that his priority would be to build infrastructure through public-private partnership; connecting and modernizing ports; building low cost airports to improve regional connectivity; enhancing broadband connectivity; and upgrading manufacturing industries.
