In view of these latest trends of foreign investment, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) economist had recently expressed the hope that during the coming years, where foreign investment in China will be seen in decline, India will have more than 7% growth Investment will be seen increasingly. The IMF had claimed that this change in the trend of global investors is getting noticed due to trade flows between the US and China and foreign investors are now preparing to play bets on India instead of China.
