Episode 7: India’s time to shine? Opportunity and risk in India

In the last six years, India’s business environment rankings rose 10 places among the 82 countries assessed by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU). Expanding investments will be crucial in maintaining the country’s favourable position for investors. To achieve this, India needs to keep improving regarding ease of doing business and governance transparency. Transforming the infrastructure to meet the needs of a growing economy is also key. In this episode, we discuss business and investment opportunities and risks in India.

Our guests are:

  • Taimur Baig, Managing Director and Chief Economist, Group Research at DBS Bank
