Bangkok, Nov 3: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said that in pursuance of his government's firm and committed Act East Policy, adequate attention is being given to enhance connectivity with this region and direct connectivity between ports on Thailand’s west coast and ports on India’s east coast will enhance the economic partnership.

Addressing a function to observe Suvarna Jayanti or the Golden Jubilee of the Aditya Birla Group in Bangkok, Mr Modi said, "This is the best time to be in India".

"India is now one of the world's most attractive economies for investment and the country is undergoing transformative changes. The country has stopped working in a routine and a bureaucratic manner," he said.

"For investment and easy business, come to India. To innovate and starting up, come to India. To experience some of the best tourist sites and warm hospitality of people, come to India. India awaits you with open arms," he said.

Prime Minister said commerce and culture has 'inherent powers' to unite and maintained that "For centuries, monks and merchants ventured out to places far and wide". "They have traveled far from home, and mixed with many cultures," he said adding the bonds of culture and commerce will certainly keep bringing the world closer in times to come. (UNI)
