Speaking to news agency ANI, Jorgen Mads Clausen, chairman of the board of directors at Danfoss said that under the PM Modi-led government bureaucratic hindrances have stopped increasing the ease of business. “I think these economic reforms in India are paving the way for big developments because, in the past, there were so many bureaucratic hindrances to big developments but it’s getting better,” Clausen said.
