  • Over the past couple of years, the Indian government has made a concerted attempt to attract foreign investments in India, especially in the infrastructure sectors.
  • Investments have come through private equity (PE) funds, pension funds and sovereign wealth funds (SWFs), strategic investors, infrastructure bonds, IDFs, etc. Greenfield and brownfield projects, operational assets, developer firms, supplier businesses, etc. have all attracted investor interest. More recently, the government’s asset monetisation scheme and the InVITs platform have garnered substantial investments.
  • The FDI inflows rose to $73.4 billion in 2019-20, after remaining stagnated at the $60 billion level for the past three years (2016-19). Between April 2020 and August 2020, around $35.7 billion was mobilised, the highest ever for the first five months in any fiscal.
  • Investments have come in from across the globe. To name a few, Australia’s largest pension fund, AustralianSuper, Canadian pension funds Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan and the Canada Pension Plan Board (CPPIB), and Norway’s Government Pension Fund Global have shown keen interest in India. CPPIB plans to invest up to a third of its funds in emerging markets by 2025 and India has been recognised as an important destination.
  • The UAE’s, Qatar Investment Authority and Abu Dhabi Investment Authority are other active investors. Notably, Abu Dhabi’s SWF, MIC Redwood 1 RSC, became the first foreign SWF to get 100 per cent tax exemption on income from interest, dividend and long-term capital gains for its investment in infrastructure.
  • Global PE firms and venture capitalists invested about $8 billion in India’s infrastructure sectors in 2019-20. The year 2020-21 also started on a positive note despite a slowdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The year was driven by a spate of PE funding in Jio platforms and NHAI’s third toll-operate-transfer (TOT) bundle, under which nine road assets were acquired by the Singapore-based Cube Highways Group.
  • Meanwhile, strategic investors such as DP World, ENGIE, ROADIS and AYANA Renewables have also set up platform funds to invest in sectors such as roads, renewable energy and ports. India’s National Infrastructure Investment Fund has collaborated with many such investors.
  • The road ahead for foreign investments in India looks promising with increased transparency and streamlined procedure for global investors to enter the Indian market. The ambitious $1.5 trillion National Infrastructure Pipeline has opened up several investment avenues for foreign investors. The government has also recently announced a new stimulus package worth $36 billion to support infrastructure projects.
  • The mission of this conference is to provide an independent, fact-based perspective on the opportunities and challenges associated with Indian infrastructure for foreign investors. It will discuss the pros and cons of each investment type and each infrastructure sector in the Indian scenario. It will provide a platform for existing investors to discuss their experiences and for potential investors to discuss their expectations and concerns. The conference will also showcase several specific investment opportunities.
