Asserting that India meets the requirements of a fair and transparent economy, Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has urged American businesses to invest in the country.

In a PTI report, Addressing a business roundtable organized by US India Business Council, with representatives of top US companies, the finance minister said India, under the current government, is creating opportunities for global industry to participate in the nation’s growth story.

In her remarks, Sitharaman emphasized that policy consistency and pursuit of reforms despite the pandemic have been a hallmark of the government’s approach.

Further, Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharama said,  India has been meeting its climate change commitments through its own funding,  as she slammed the West for not making the promised funding available to countries to achieve their climate objectives.

She said India has come up with very ambitious nationally determined goals in its fight against climate change.

“The commitments which we have given in COP21 earlier and COP26 subsequently are all working together with those parameters, which let’s say everybody agreed in the UNFCCC. So all of us will walk the path the way we have nationally determined commitments that have been given. I’m happy to say that India somehow fulfilled its COP21 commitments given in Paris, largely out of its own funds,” she said on Monday.
