What Davos mean to Common Indians?

Davos is the fountainhead of great deal of marketing gimmicks for India, which indirectly points towards the success of Modi government and the personal charisma of the Prime Minister. With very little evidence of success in the government’s kitty, Davos has turned out to be promotional vehicle for the government to the middle class Indians

The WEF (World Economic Forum) that is held in a snowy ski resort of Davos is being attended by 70 heads of state and governments. The Indian policy makers, investors and the people alike look forward to Davos as a one stop shop for investments in the country. India, which is always known for being a nation of aggressive marketing, has done its homework well, resulting in high level of the country’s visibility and reach.

  • Surge of foreign investments in India is higher than most of other nations
  • Union minister Piyush Goyal looks India as a global leader and problem solver of a ‘fractured world’

Goyal, on the sidelines of WEF, said, “Going forward, India’s role in the world economy, in the social tensions and in the fight against terrorism and climate change is only going to grow.”

Indian media has also projected Prime Minister Narendra Modi as being in the pinnacle of his popularity and global acceptance. He is leader, who in the public eye, is respected by the global leaders and tackler of global problems.

“In that sense, 125 crore Indians are dining a pride of place when it comes to the world,” Goyal said.

The picture that media painted for the common folks is the transforming India that melts into the league of world superpower with a new and vibrant economy. The brand India is shining with major world powers looking into India with keen interest.

“We have been the fastest growing large economy for the last three years and very clearly people see a huge investment opportunity as India develops its infrastructure.

“With a 2 trillion dollar investment trust we are looking at infrastructure, I don’t think there is a comparable opportunity in the whole world,” Goyal said.

“Whether it’s about climate change, fight against corruption and black money or issue of transparency in governance, the prime minister has put across his vision very effectively on various global platforms including G20 and the way the global powers have accepted that viewpoint, I’m confident that India’s growing position is being recognised,” he added.
