"This is the best time to be in India. Many things are rising while others are falling. Ease of doing business, ease of living, FDI, forest cover, patents, productivity, infrastructure are rising. While taxes, tax rates, red-tapism, corruption, cronyism are falling," PM Modi said today at Aditya Birla Group's Golden Jubilee celebrations in Bangkok.

 
In an interview to Bangkok Post, the Prime Minister also said that a mutually beneficial RCEP (Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership), in which all sides gain reasonably, is in the interest of India and of all partners in the negotiation.
