As a destination for foreign direct investment (FDI), India is looking better now than ever before. A perceived high level of risk has previously limited its ability to attract foreign businesses, but with a slew of new policies implemented recently and the government’s push towards ease of doing business, India is now perfectly positioned to compete with the world’s premier investment locations.
India can offer investors a unique array of advantages. Its skilled and low-cost labor force is one of the largest in the world, and it has a high level of English fluency relative to other countries in Asia. The reforms that have been implemented are numerous and include infrastructural improvements, the raising of FDI caps, and the simplification of visa obtainment procedures.
