Prime Minister Narendra Modi will head to Davos, Switzerland on Monday to attend the 48th annual meeting of the World Economic Forum. He is scheduled to deliver a keynote address on the opening day of the meeting on Tuesday. This year, over 3,000 global leaders from business, government, politics, academia and social sectors are participating at the Summit which will conclude on January 26.Prime Minister Narendra Modi is the only Indian PM to attend the event after former PM HD Deve Gowda post-1997. Upbeat on India’s prospect at the World Economic Forum 2018, SpiceJet CEO Ajay Singh says that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has a great story to tell about significant reforms undertaken in India and even a greater story about 1.4 billion Indians, a young population and a massive market for the world, while no one other than him is better to tell this story, PTI reported Spicejet CEO Ajay Singh as saying. It is a very big occasion for India as an Indian prime minister is attending the WEF Davos summit after 20 years, he said. “When we saw Chinese premier Xi Jinping here last year, there was a lot of focus on China and it’s natural there would be a lot of focus on India this time,” Singh told PTI in an interview.
“There have been very significant reforms including GST which have been in-waiting for so many years. There are also developments like bankruptcy law, digitisation and formalisation of the economy on a fast track basis, 42-place jump on ease of doing business index, etc. There is a good story on all economic parameters and of course there is the larger story also of 1.4 billion people, of a young population and of a massive market,” Singh said. “It’s a great story and who can be better than the prime minister to tell this story. India will create the buzz this time at Davos and there is no question about it,” he told PTI.
