Fortune Editor Alan Murray, who moderated the discussion, said complicated regulations, excessive permitting, confusing bureaucracy, poor infrastructure and overlapping local taxes
were raised by the CEOs who urged the Prime Minister to "pick up the pace of change".
They praised the Prime Minister's efforts to improve the climate for business, while highlighting the obstacles. One of them said, "It is not an easy place to do business."
The Prime Minister acknowledged their concerns and pledged to speed up efforts to reduce the role of the government in business.
"The world is not going to wait for us. I know that," Modi said, according to a newsletter issued by Murray.
"The high turnout of the CEOs highlights the prime position India holds in today's global economy. With China slowing, India's 7.5 per cent growth rate makes it the fastest
growing major economy in the world today and many of the CEOs cited plans to expand there," Murray added.
External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup told reporters after the meeting, "By and large the mood was very upbeat. There is general consensus that the Prime Minister is
effecting change in India. The only thing all the CEOs said is that please make that change faster."
The CEOs present at the meeting included Lockheed Martin Chairman and CEO Marillyn Hewson, Ford President and CEO Mark Fields, IBM Chairman Ginni Rometty, Pepsi Co Chief Indra Nooyi and Dow Chemical Chairman Andrew Liveris.
