The Prime Minister said this in his address at the India Pavillion at Dubai Expo 2020

While addressing the gathering at the India Pavilion at Dubai Expo 2020 through virtual mode, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday invited people to invest in India.

“I invite you to come and invest in our nation. Today, India is a land of opportunities. Be it in the field of arts or commerce, industry or academia. There is opportunity to discover, opportunity to partner, opportunity to progress. Come to India and explore these opportunities. India also offers you maximum growth. Growth in scale, growth in ambition, growth in results. Come to India and be a part of our growth story,” the Prime Minister said.

Calling Dubai Expo 2020 as a historic event, he said it will go a long way in further building India’s relations with UAE.

“This is a historic Expo. It is the first one to be held in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia region. India is participating with one of the largest pavilions in the Expo. I am sure the Expo will go a long way in further building our deep and historical relations with the UAE,” the Prime Minister said.

Making a high pitch for the country, the Prime Minister said India is one of the most open countries in the world. “Open to learning, open to perspectives, open to innovation, open to investment,” PM Modi said.

Further highlighting investment opportunities in the country, he said: “India is a power house of talent. Our country is making many advances in the world of technology, research and innovation. Our economic growth is powered by a combination of legacy industries and start-ups. India's pavilion will showcase the best of India across these multiple areas. It will also showcase investment opportunities in multiple sectors like health, textiles, infrastructure, services and more. Over the last seven years, the Government of India has undertaken several reforms to boost economic growth. We will keep doing more to continue this trend.”
