John Chambers who is a former executive chairman and CEO of Cisco Systems addressed reporters in the press conference where he specifically told India has a clear-cut chance to be the strongest growth-inclusive country in the world.
A top US industrialist further added that India’s sensational development and inclusive growth’ stand at risk in case if PM Narendra Modi does not get a chance to lead the nation from the front after the parliamentary elections.
“To do that takes at least a decade to put in place. I think your prime minister Modi has to capability of doing it. I think he has the country headed in the right way,” he said.
“I think it would be a major risk not to give him a chance to finish that vision,” Chambers told on the sidelines of the inaugural Annual Leadership Summit of the US India Strategic and Partnership Forum (USISPF).
When asked if PM Modi is not re-elected in the 2019 elections he said the Indian Prime Minister is brave, adding that he is the right person to lead the country. “He (Modi) is courageous. He wakes up every day thinking about your country’s future,” he said.
When asked about India US relationship, he said, adding that there is big potential in this bilateral relationship. “The impact of this is going to be so large for both nations that you will not find small bumps on the way to distract us,” he said.
