St Petersberg, June 2 (IBNS): Urging various nations of the world to invest in India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during his visit to Russia on Friday said that 125 crore Indians invite the world to come to India and explore the opportunities.

While speaking at the St Petersberg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) 2017, PM Modi invited the world and said: "I invite you all to come to India for the sake of development and change of fortune."

Modi even uttered the word like "sky is the limit", for ones seeking foreign investments in the country.

In the forum, Modi went on to showcase the performance of his government in three years since coming to power, with an aim to push for investments.

Highlighting the works his government has done, PM said: "We took decision to curb the obstacles of laws after coming to power. You will be happy to hear that within 1100 days since coming to power, we have done away around 1200 legal procedures which were not necessary at all in the present scenario and it is a major step towards reform. India wants to move forward with the global benchmark. We have done around 7000 reforms in the federal structure with an aim towards ease of doing business."

Modi even stressed on "minimum government and maximum governance."

The dream of 'New India' which Modi has talked about particularly after BJP's win in the state election of Uttar Pradesh, was once again echoed in the forum, on Friday.

Modi explained the definition of 'New India' as the system with upgraded infrastructure in the "youth country" like India.

"India is a youth country" Modi stated.

Explaining the talents of youth in India, he said: "There have been lot of attempts taken by several countries to reach Mars, but it was only India who had managed to reach Mars in a single trial. But the most significant talent of our youth is that India had reached Mars at a cost lower than the budget of a Hollywood film."

Modi even thanked the Russian President Vladimir Putin for giving the opportunity to speak about India in the forum.

India and Russia on Thursday signed a deal to set up last two nuclear power units of Kundankulam in the state of Tamil Nadu with help of Moscow.

PM Modi on Friday even visited the State Hermitage Museum and Institute of Oriental Manuscripts.
