News Paper

KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Saturday that "most Asean economies have done their bit for Asia's resurgence and now it is India's turn to make the 21st century an Asian century."

"India and Asean (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) are natural partners. Our ties date back to ancient times," Modi said while addressing the Asean business and investment summit in Kuala Lumpur.

"I have been saying that the 21st century belongs to Asia. I say this because of the track record of Asean countries," PM Modi said amid loud applause.

The PM said there is increased confidence about India.

He said India was doing well in almost every economic indicator. "By almost every economic indicator, India is doing better than we (NDA government) took office 18 months ago," Modi said.

"The IMF and World Bank have expressed even better hope for our economy this year and after," PM said.

"I invite you to come and see the winds of change in India. Winds do take time to cross the borders. That is why I am here to invite you," the PM said in his concluding remarks.

India committed to protect IPRs
