New Delhi: Lauding the ASEAN community for its overwhelming success, Prime Minister Narendra Modi called for a united effort to work for the development of the region.

Mentioning the availability of a huge available manpower in India, Modi said, foreign investors can make good use of the congenial commerce atmosphere in India.

Stressing on the ‘Make in India’ campaign, Modi said, since the BJP led government took over the reins of government 18 months ago, emphasis was given on reforms to transform the India’s industrial sector to make it business friendly. Despite India’s economy facing numerous challenges, the government was committed to restore credibility, said Modi, adding, the initiatives undertaken in the last few months had increased people’s confidence on India. Indian economy witnessed an upward surge since then, he added.

Inviting ASEAN member nations to develop smart cities in India, Modi said there was a huge investment opportunity in various fields including science, education and technology.

The Indian premier called for a united effort for enhancing cooperation in the areas of medicine, health, climate change, disaster reduction.

Modi also said that everyone should follow the international norms and law to maintain the peace in the south china sea which is critical to the region which includes 1982 United Nations Convention on the law of the sea.

Alike all other foreign visits, Modi upheld the campaign of ‘Make in India’ in Malaysia as well. His address at the ASEAN trade summit was aimed at luring investments and showcasing opportunities in a country aiming to be a leading global manufacturer.
