Foreign Direct Investment

Foreign Direct Investment

In a country where there is a paucity of available capital, Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and Overseas Direct Investment (ODI) act as potent sources for companies seeking to commence business or gain impetus through funding. Cognizant of the scenario, the government keeps amending its policies to increase the inflow in particular sectors that need inducement.
