Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Saturday said India’s commitment to reform is being taken seriously by foreign investors, which is evident from the good inflow of FDI even during the time of COVID-19.

Between April-July, the Foreign Direct investment (FDI) into India stood at USD 20 billion.

India’s commitment to reform is taken seriously by investors abroad and they take India to be a very desirable destination, otherwise we wouldn’t be seeing good amount of FDI coming even during the pandemic time when India, as many of our critics would say, had the strictest lockdown, Sitharaman said.
