Prime Minister Narendra Modi met with the top American business leaders on Thursday at New York's iconic Waldorf Astoria hotel. India is open for business and the top priority for his government was reforms in governance, PM told a group of more than 40 top executives.
Great hour with Indian PM Modi. Best leader with best policies since independence, but massive task to achieve in most complex nation.
Narendra Modi's leadership is changing India- and the world. Glad to see him in NYC today.
We all have concerns about the speed. We want to see more action more quickly but directionally the investments in infrastructure, the energy, vision for the future, bringing the country together, goods and services tax reform, are all extremely positive.
Mark Weinberger, CEO of Ernst and Young
The government has already undertaken a massive amount of reforms. The key message from the US companies was keep doing what you are doing. I had a great meeting, there was a constructive dialogue in the spirit of collaboration. We are looking at India trying to get foreign direct investment.
James Dimon,JP Morgan CEO
He was very impressive. He understood all the issues. He is doing a lot...I came away very enthusiastic about India.
