Indian PM calls protectionism as dangerous as terrorism

Sending out a strong message against protectionism and inward-focused economic policies, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi yesterday said such tendencies can be as dangerous as terrorism and climate change as he pitched for creating a “heaven of freedom.” Mr. Modi, who became the first Indian Prime Minister to address the World Economic Forum’s annual summit here in two decades, talked about grave concerns facing the world,

including terrorism and climate change. In an almost hour-long speech in Hindi, the Prime Minister sought to hard sell India as an investment destination, saying those wanting wealth with wellness and peace with prosperity should come to the country.
