Having interacted with top American businesses and corporate leaders over the past five days in both New York and Washington, Jaitley yesterday told reporters the feedback he is receiving is that investors need a stable policy regime and the Indian government is committed to that.
"In otherwise troubled time of the global economy, India clearly is a bright spot. As a bright spot, our growth rates are improving. Fiscal discipline is under control," he said.
"This year we are targeting eight percent growth, which in current global situation appears to be reasonably impressive. And that is what makes us an attractive destination," he said.
Jaitley, who met investors over the past few days in both New York and Washington, either on a one-to-one basis or collectively, said the meetings were an opportunity to explain to them what has happened in the past one year in terms of the reform programme and all that is in the pipeline.
"The government is fairly determined to continue this process so that it can give further boost to our economy," Jaitley said, adding that the meetings were also an opportunity to understand how investors view India.
