A report by Financial Times on Tuesday stated that India has become the world’s most preferred destination for Greenfield investment, outranking both China and US. While most emerging economies are facing a year on year decline in capital spent on Greenfield projects, India’s foreign capital inflow has reached 31 billion dollars in just the first half of 2015. India has ranked fifth in capital investment, following China, US, UK and Mexico.
