He further said, the government will look at the foreign direct investment policy “with a very open mind.”

“We continue to attract investments across and it is important that India becomes a part of the global supply chain,” Kant said.

Lauding the investment friendly atmosphere in India, the investors rated its vast domestic market and availability of labor as the most lucrative features.
