Indian interest in all things nano continues to accelerate, the latest evangelist being one of India’s leading scientits C.N.R. Rao claiming that India cannot afford to miss the revolution in nanotechnology.
The conditions look ripe for some good technology activity. 2005 was an outstanding year for India’s financial markets with the benchmark Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) Sensex up 42% to end the year at a record 9398. One of the key factors was foreign portfolio investment in Indian equities, amounting to $10 billion in 2005, the highest ever in a single year.
All of which makes the World Nano-Economic Congress in Mumbai the place to be for anyone wanting to either take advantage the India’s booming tech sector, or penetrate India’ markets.
