India needs to improve infrastructure such as energy and air connectivity in order to improve its prospects as an investment destination, according to Gordon Orr, Chairman-Asia, McKinsey & Co.

“The other day I was talking to a Chinese entrepreneur who wanted to set up a plant in Haryana. But he’s not able to get power for it. India needs to become a great alternative option for investment,” said Mr. Orr, during a panel discussion organised by McKinsey, which released a book called ‘Reimagining India: Unlocking the Potential of Asia’s Next Superpower.

The book, which was complied and edited by McKinsey, is a compilation of essays by leading thinkers, writers and industrialists such as Bill Gates and Anand Mahindra.

According to Adil Zainulbhai, Chairman – India, McKinsey & Co, “we must not lose sight of India’s potential even if there have been mistakes done in the past.”

“We have spent little over a year in getting this out. We’re very serious about this book, in fact we have arranged to have copies sent to Rahul, the PM and various regional politicians as well. We hope it will be able to advance the current level of debate and discussion,” Mr. Zainulbhai said.
