PM Narendra Modi delivered the historic inaugural address at the World Economic Forum in Davos. He pitched for India as an investment destination, emphasising on efforts to improve the ease of doing business. Highlighting India’s growing influence in the global economy, PM Modi recalled that in 1997, when an Indian Prime Minister last attended the WEF, the country’s GDP was a bit over $400 billion. “Two decades later, the country’s GDP has multiplied over six times,” he said.
