earnings” he added During his speech at the event Singh said that Bihar and West Bengal are not implementing the agri-programmes properly “A large number of farmers in Bihar and West Bengal are not

There’s little doubt that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has brought a distinctive new aesthetic to Indian diplomacy Less noticed though is that he could also be bringing in a new purposefulness and focus His global outreach isn’t about showmanship alone In the course of his eight-day tour of Germany France and Canada the prime minister played the role of advocate of Indian business — pushing global corporations to make the investments needed to realise his vision of a manufacturing economy Even Prime Minister Manmohan Singh pro-business as he was had been squeamish about putting his personal reputation behind promises to potential investors Indeed foreign investors frequently complained the UPA government was sometimes hostile and often indifferent Modi who has had to play hardscrabble to draw industry to Gujarat in the past appears to understand what business is looking for even if it still remains to be seen whether and how much he can deliver on it The prime minister’s commitment at a technology trade fair in Hanover that he would ensure a way is found to cut through regulatory snarls and corruption is just the message potential investors have been waiting to hear Modi made it clear that he sees global business as an integral part of India’s march forward — a message that Indian leaders have in recent years been reluctant to articulate aloud “For me” he said “‘Make in India’ is not a brand nor is it simply a slogan… It is a new national movement” The objective he underlined was to create “a stable economic environment that inspires confidence at home and abroad” It’s this stated vision not the purchase of Rafale combat jets from France or uranium from Canada that promises to mark Modi’s foreign policy: those after all are part of well-developed traditions Modi’s outreach to the Indian diaspora unprecedented in scale — and some might carp bling — draws from the same sets of concerns Indian-origin businesspeople in the US and Europe are significant not only because of the wealth they may bring home but because their actions will be a barometer for global firms’ own investment decisions The prime minister’s success will eventually lie in his ability to deliver at home on the promises he has made investors abroad But the long-overdue realisation that India’s domestic progress is linked to how it conducts its foreign policy marks an important moment in an evolving strategic vision For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by C Raja Mohan | Published: July 24 2013 1:30 am
