Making a pitch for more investments in India, Ambani said, “Right now is probably the most exciting time for sport in India, whether you are a coach, a player, an investor, an administrator or a fan.” “800 million Indians consumed sports on television alone in 2018,” she said, adding that new India is a land of infinite opportunities and the scale and size of the viewership for cricket and other sports makes India truly a unique opportunity,” she said. Ambani, who is also the owner of Mumbai Indians IPL franchise and chairperson of the Indian Super League, said India offers the unique blend of power of democracy, diversity, demography and development. “Within a decade, India will overtake China as the most populous nation in the world. India is proud of being free, open, liberal and democratic society. The time is not far when India will become the third largest economy in the world with an ambitious target of doubling the GDP in next 5 years and making it a 5 trillion dollar economy,” she said, adding that with all these unique opportunities, every one should become a part of the incredible India opportunity.Disclaimer: Reliance Industries Ltd. is the sole beneficiary of Independent Media Trust which controls Network18 Media & Investments Ltd. last_img read more
