there is no reason for investors to doubt that “in the run-up to the polls, we will be anything but responsible”. The finance minister said after the roadshows in the four cities “there is enormous interest in India. There is enormous goodwill for India, that India must get back to the high growth path and they want us to recapture what we achieved between 2004 and 2009. I am very positive and I am very hopeful”.
Maintaining that foreign direct investment (FDI) are robust, he said figures till October show that it continue to be good. “But I think after these road shows in Hong Kong, Singapore, Frankfurt and now in London, I think FDI interest will improve and FDI flows will improve,” he said.
