Dear Niveshaks,

The month of September 2014 has seen the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi concluding a successful visit to Japan in which investments of USD 35 billion were promised by Japan over the next five years in development projects. 

During the five-day visit, his first outside the subcontinent since becoming PM in May, Modi invited Japanese investments while hard-selling India as a conducive destination for business particularly for the manufacturing sector. The two countries also decided to enhance cooperation in defense and other strategic areas and also signed five pacts covering defense exchanges, cooperation in clean energy, roads and highways, healthcare and women while vowing to take their relationship to newer level. Then came the launch of ‘Make in India’ campaign which aims at investments in the 25 identified growth sectors and as a consequence, generate employment.
But the highlight of the month was, definitely, Mr. Modi’s US visit. Enthralling Americans and the Indian-American community, his visit marked a new direction in strengthening of Indo-US ties. In the four-day visit, Modi not only met the US President Barack Obama, but also sought to invite investment from prominent CEOs and urged the Indian-American community to take up a greater role in the development of India. India and the US issued a vision statement "Chalein Saath Saath: Forward Together We Go." The vision statement said that US-India strategic partnership is a joint endeavor for prosperity and peace, and through intense consultations, joint exercises and shared technology, their security cooperation will make the region and world safe and secure.
On the whole, the entire investor community is upbeat about India after Modi’s successful foreign consultations and business pitches. Even the business community around the world is extremely optimistic about investing in India and is waiting for an opportunity to open up in the country. With S&P also upgrading the rating from negative to stable, India is only set on a path of positive economic reforms and consistent growth.
On the magazine front, the cover story deals with low interest rates that are prevailing globally. It essentially analyzes the interest rates across the globe, in major economies, and their impact on Indian economy. The Article of the Month (AOM) discusses about de-allocation of the 214 coal blocks. The article talks about how the decision infused fear in the minds of investors who were benefitting from the surge in the markets since the new government has taken over the center. It also talks about how the mid-cap companies are affected by this verdict and that whether there is enough cushion for them to pull back. FinSight discusses about the MSME sector and how it has been the backbone of Indian economy their financing needs through CGTMSE. FinGyaan article on ‘Impact of regulation on Indian economy,’ talks about how the ‘over-regulation’ is crippling investor sentiments and has become a bone of contention in India’s growth.
