Prime Minister Narendra Modi met industry leaders on Tuesday to deliberate on the recent developments in the global economic scenario and opportunities it presents for India.
According to news agency Reuters, PM Modi talked about the opportunities for Asia's third-largest economy in China's market and growth woes. The meeting was attended by tycoons including India's richest man, Mukesh Ambani, finance minister Arun Jaitley, central bank governor Raghuram Rajan, economists and state and private bank chiefs.
