The Hannover Messe is regarded as one of the world’s largest and most prestigious industrial fairs with people from all over the world converging at this German city to see what the world’s top manufacturers have to offer. In 2015, India became a partner country at the Hannover Messe.



The Messe was jointly inaugurated by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi and Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany. India’s soft power and the rich potential that India has to offer to invest were displayed at the Hannover Messe. The ‘Make in India’ pavilion was spectacular, showcasing the ethos and changes on the ground that make India an attractive investment destination. The various States of India had their pavilions, which were widely appreciated.



In his speech the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi expressed joy that in the very first year of the BJP-led NDA Government India has got the opportunity to become a partner Nation in a forum as prestigious as the Hannover Messe. He highlighted the steps taken by the NDA government in their very first year in office to make business easier, to make the tax systems simpler and to create an environment that attracts foreign investment.

During his bilateral visits, a lot of world leaders have told Mr. Modi that they are very optimistic about ‘Make in India.’ This included PM Najib Razak of Malaysia, PM Lee Hsien Loong of Singapore, PM Abbott of Australia, PM Abe of Japan, President Hollande of France, PM Harper of Canada.

In the last one year, the PM’s efforts to create a positive atmosphere about India, making and investing in India have yielded rich results with the world’s eyes now firmly drawn to India and the vast opportunities here.

The work of the NDA government under the leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has been profusely lauded by leading international bodies for the policies that have initiated the wheels of change in India.

The World bank expressed hope that India is expected to grow at a phenomenal pace of 6.4% in 2015-16 as against a 5.6% in 2014-15. The World Bank added that this is linked to what they called ‘the Modi dividend.’ The World Bank added that investment is set to pick up due to the government’s policies and even the declining oil prices.



The positive sentiment has been echoed by the President of the World Bank, Mr. Jim Yong Kim. Mr. Kim said that "strong visionary leadership" of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has resulted in "extraordinary effort" by India on financial inclusion of its people. He even praised the Jan Dhan Yojana, the effort of the Government of India towards financial inclusion.

The International Monetary Fund pointed that due to the reform drive by PM Modi and the declining oil prices, the Indian economy will grow faster than what is expected and will even outplace China. The IMF also linked the reforms to rising investor confidence.

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has opined that the economic reforms in India are poised to put the Indian economy on a strong, sustainable and inclusive growth path. This again points to the reformist zeal of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi.

The leading and respected global agency, Moody’s has upgraded India’s rating outlook to “positive” from the previous “stable.” This is again seen as a major boost for investors and a thumbs-up to the reform drive of the Prime Minister and his team.

A similar optimistic response on India’s growth came from the United Nations, whose mid-year update on the World Economic Situation and Prospects puts India’s growth above 7% for this year and the next year.

Thus, the reformist zeal of the Prime Minister and the quick pace of the wheels of reforms have drawn the attention of the world, which is appreciative of India and optimistic about the Indian economy.
