New Delhi, 30 August
Harvard Business School (HBS) professor Michael E. Porter said on Tuesday that India is one of the most important countries in the world and has great power and strength.
Participating through video conferencing at an event organized by the Economic Advisory Council to the Prime Minister (EAC-PM), Porter said Indians want to succeed and they want to prosper.
“India is one of the most important countries in the world. India is a democracy, it is not China, it is not Russia. It is not trying to take over other nations.
“This is a country that is trying to create prosperity for its citizens and it has a lot of power and strength and it is very important to do this in the evolution of the world economy at this moment,” the economist said.
He emphasized the need to integrate social and economic agendas to achieve India’s goal of becoming a high-income nation by 2047.
Also, speaking at the event, HBS Professor Christian Kettles said India is one of the countries that has the greatest potential to increase its growth opportunities for all its citizens.
Institute for Competitiveness Chairman Amit Kapoor said, if the world has to succeed, India has to be a success story.
