As India's growth rate continues to outpace other emerging markets, a notable trend of 'reverse flipping' has emerged. Startups that once relocated abroad for better capital and tax incentives are now finding fertile ground back home, stated Commerce Secretary Sunil Barthwal.

Speaking at an event in Singapore organized by the commerce ministry, Barthwal highlighted that the digital economy and emerging technologies, such as AI and data centers, are cornerstone factors propelling India's future growth. The event, held in conjunction with the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework for Prosperity (IPEF) Clean Economy Investor Forum, underscored India's investment potential.

The ministry reported that India's economy grew by 8.2 percent in the fiscal year ending March 2024, solidifying its status as the fastest-growing major economy. The event drew over 60 participants from a global pool of investors and financial institutions, eager to explore opportunities in India's dynamic market.
