India Invites Dutch Investors in Healthcare And Agri Sectors
India has invited Dutch companies to increase their investments in the country, especially since there is a substantial scope in sectors like healthcare, water, agriculture and agri-tech.
Large internal market and skilled labour availability make India an ideal location for the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and global supply chains, industry leaders informed the Dutch business community during a recent webinar here.
During the webinar, organised by the Indian embassy here on Friday with the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) as a partner, the industry leaders highlighted that the IMF in its June forecasts has predicted that India will grow at 6 per cent in 2021.
At the webinar, India’s Ambassador to the Netherlands Venu Rajamony invited Dutch companies to increase investments in India especially since there is substantial scope in sectors such as healthcare, water, agriculture and agri-tech, according to an official statement issued on Wednesday.
“The CII has conveyed to Dutch business community that a large internal market and skilled labour availability make India an ideal location for foreign direct investment and global supply chains,” it said.
The webinar was participated by former Dutch foreign minister Uri Rosenthal, the former Dutch ambassador to India, Fons Stoelinga and representatives of the Dutch
Government as well as leading companies like Shell and Philips.
