Republic of India

The Republic of India is the seventh largest, second most populous country and third largest economy in the world and diversity of culture and climatic conditions and natural and mineral resources. India possesses richness. India’s enduring institutions, which are rooted in the principles of democracy, ensure a transparent, predictable and secure environment for foreign investment. The existence of a free and vibrant press, an independent judiciary, a strong legal and accounting system are some of the attractive features of the business environment. The private sector is the backbone of the economy, accounting for 75% of the GDP. The opening up of the economy, which has resulted in the entry of a large number of foreign companies, together with the increasingly global focus of domestic industry, has resulted in the dynamic growth and increased competitiveness of Indian firms and the role and importance of the private sector in India’s economic development is rapidly increasing. Today, India is one of the most exciting emerging markets in the world.
