Global Executives Rate India as Most Attractive Investment Destination

32 percent of 505 global investors named India as the favored market for investment according to a survey published by accounting firm Ernst & Young. China was second with 15 percent of the vote, followed by S.E. Asia, Brazil and N. America.
“There is no doubt that interest in India has increased,” Mark Otty, Ernst & Young area managing partner for Europe, Middle East, India and Africa said.  “Investors increasingly see the potential and understand the fundamentals.”  Industrial policy secretary Amitabh Kant said that the government was “determined to make India an extremely easy and simple place to do business. Our first priority is to do away with the many procedures and rules, followed by bringing in consistency and clarity in all our policies and tax regime and developing a world-class infrastructure.”
Channel NewsAsia reports that according to Financial Times data service, fDi Markets, Greenfield foreign direct investment (new ventures) in India rose 32 percent to $25 billion in 2014 after declining in the previous two years.
