Infrastructure : Has come a long way in the last 5 years and the future looks bright. Governance : Largely popular based governance with employment generation being the key. Foreign companies are seen as generators rather than blockers. Connectivity : New LCCs and the golden quadrilateral projects have shown that India is coming up in a BIG way. Bureaucracy : Largely friendly, intelligent people are working overtime to get rid of the “Babu-dom” image that was there.
