Modi govt policies conducive to attracting more FDI Hinduja

first_imgLondon-based billionaires Hindujas said on Monday that they would make more investments worth billions in India as the policy measures initiated by the Modi government are creating a business-friendly environment in the country.”The foreign investors are engaging the Big four audit companies to get information from India and so far the feedback is that the Modi’s government has taken the right steps in attracting investment since they came to power in May last year,” Business Standard quoted Prakash Hinduja, chairman of the Hinduja group of companies in Europe, as saying.The investment plans from the Hinduja group comes at a time when a majority of Indian companies are following the wait-and-see approach in making new investments.”Modi has created a buzz among foreign investors and they are waiting for the right opportunities to invest in,” he said.After assuming power in May last year, the Modi government has allowed more foreign direct investment (FDI) in defense, resolved retrospective tax issues and has taken measures to attract investments from overseas companies.India’s rank in the “Doing Business Report”, released by the World Bank, has moved up by four notches to 130th position, giving a boost to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s push to make the country appear in the top 50 list in three years.However, a slowdown in the global economy is restricting many foreign companies to postpone their investments in India.Hinduja said that many Indian companies are not making investments “due to own problems such as high debt.”But, the Hinduja group companies are in the “investment mode,” he said.last_img read more

Vice Media Chief Creative Officer Tom Punch Exits to Join Spring Studios

first_img Popular on Variety Tom Punch, Vice Media’s global chief creative and commercial officer, has left the media company after six years to join ad agency Spring Studios.Punch has been named global president and chief creative officer for Spring Studios across its offices in New York, Los Angeles, London and Milan. In the new role, Punch reports to Spring Studios CEO Richard Yaffa.His departure from Vice comes after a series of senior-executive changes at the company — including the naming of former A+E Networks chief Nancy Dubuc as CEO this spring, replacing Shane Smith in the role, a move coming after allegations of misconduct at the Brooklyn-based company.Vice recently instituted a hiring freeze under Dubuc, and the company is looking to shrink its headcount through attrition. A Wall Street Journal report last week, citing anonymous sources, said Vice’s revenue for 2018 is projected to be flat with last year. Meanwhile, Disney took a $157 million write-down on its investment in Vice for the September quarter. Punch’s last day at Vice was Nov. 2. At the company he oversaw commercial content and operations, including for the Viceland cable channel. He led the company’s internal agency, called Virtue, which worked with brands including Netflix, Lululemon, L’Oréal, Budweiser, McDonald’s, Unilever, Samsung, YouTube and Google. He also started the company’s branded-content studio Vice+ Productions.“Tom’s global experience and achievements will continue to expand Spring’s role as aspirational storytellers, carving out a strategic space where culture and commerce collide,” Yaffa said in a statement.Prior to joining Vice in 2012, Punch had worked at ad agencies including Mother and GroupM’s MediaCom.Spring Studios describes itself as combining high-end agency, production and content capabilities. “Spring has architected a beautiful platform to build upon,” Punch said in a statement provided by the agency. “Its merging of culture with commerce, community with content, and digital with physical has attracted a talented community of hybrid creative, business people that I can’t wait to get to work with.”center_img ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.
