India Minister invites European textile firms
FRANCE: Indian Textiles Minister on Tuesday urged European
companies to invest more in his country as he insisted in Paris that
India was a more lucrative destination than China.
"Come, come, come and make money," Maran told textile industry
executives, adding: "Come to India, produce in India, sell in India,
make money in India."
Maran, who visited Switzerland, Italy and Turkey before arriving in
France, said India was a safer bet for investors than China.
"We want to ensure that India has good quality products, that
copyright is protected, so that investors prefer India to China or other
countries," he told AFP.
"We want to ensure that more investment comes to India, not to take
your business," he said. PARIS, AFP
