You may imagine India as an exotic land of coconut trees and mountains, tigers and snakes. And then you hear of poverty, dirt, and disease in India. So why’s the business world suddenly flocking to this place? Because the country is booming! It’s a vast land with varied geography, plentiful resources, and a unique history of commerce. Sure, the challenges are diverse, but as a business destination India looks good!
