Swiss companies invest more than four and a half billion Swiss Francs in India and employ around 100000 people. India is currently the world’s fastest growing large economy as per the latest estimates of the International Monetary Fund. With political reforms guided by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, there is hope for accelerated growth.
