Pravasi Bharatiya Divas: Calling for investment, PM Modi says FDI stands for First Develop India
The three-day 14th Pravasi Bharatiya Divas, a mega meet of the Indian disapora which saw its largest convergence, came to an end in Bengaluru on January 9, with the government saying the PBD engagement was “extremely substantive” and outcome oriented.
30 million Indians abroad are valued not just for strength in numbers but respected for contributions to India and countries where they live, said PM Modi.
The 14th edition of Pravasi Bharatiya Divas – 2017 billed as the largest convergence of Indian diaspora, began in the country’s IT hub on Saturday with the spotlight on the role of youth in transforming the society and India’s potential to play the role of a ‘Vishwa Guru’ again.
