INVESTORS LOOK TOWARDS INDIA

FOREIGN investors increasingly see India as an attractive location for new opportunities, according to Ernst & Young figures released this morning. Foreign direct investment (FDI) programmes to India jumped by 25 per cent last year; 864 FDI projects in the 11 months to November invested over $50bn (£32bn). The Indian government is currently facing protests from domestic suppliers opposed to liberalisation of the retail sector.
