CII urges local, foreign investors to invest in India

New Delhi - Industry body Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) today urged domestic and overseas investors to invest in India, saying time is ripe to make investments.

It is time for industry to take the risk and build new capacity and overseas companies must invest in the huge opportunities present in the country, CII President Shobana Kamineni said in a statement.

She was speaking at the CII Annual Session 2018 here.

Kamineni also stressed that it is time for industry to invest, given the improvement in domestic and global GDP, the industry body said.

"In India, industry's R&D spending is too low at 0.3% of GDP and large and small companies must set aside a proportion of profits to invest in innovation," she said in the statement.

Kamineni has outlined a 5-point agenda for the industry to build a better India. She strongly urged companies to do business ethically and transparently, the body said.

"We cannot have scams. Doing business responsibly is critical to the success of industry".

She also called for participation of women in the industry.

Kamineni also requested the government for widening of tax base through lowering of corporate income tax, better allocation of resources and right pricing, and deregulation of labour laws.
