Investors’ summit gets bigger

Uttar Pradesh, which is likely to host a similar summit in January-end, is likely to have only B2B meetings.

With Japan and Canada as Country Partners, and the US-India Business Council, the UK-India Business Council as Organisation Partners, the summit will not only help Modi to expand his 'brand' at international level, but also within the country where the pitch for a bigger role for him on the national political stage is rising.

In the 2011 meet, a total of 8,860 MoUs pledging investment to the tune of Rs 20.83 lakh crore were signed.
