Asia-Pacific team leader and global business attorney Vinita Bahri-Mehra was invited to give opening remarks at “Emerging India: How India Will Play a Major Role in 2016 and Beyond,” a joint presentation of the Indian Consulate and the New York City chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth. The presentation, which aimed to discuss the subcontinent’s viability as a destination for increased U.S. investment in 2016, featured a review of the country’s demographic profile, an evaluation of its recent economic activity, its competitive positioning relative to opportunities in China and Brazil, and a panel of technology experts.

Vinita’s presentation covered the specific inflow of foreign direct investment in India, an overview of investable industry sectors and Indian pillars of growth, and an overview of the government’s focus on driving investment in India through the “Make in India” initiative, which is focused particularly on manufacturing.
