Government seeks foreign investment in roads

Government seeks foreign investment in roads

India's Transport Minister Kamal Nath said on Tuesday that India wants foreign investors to fund as much as half of the $20 billion in a year it has earmarked for building roads.

Building roads has become a priority for the new Congress-led government as it aims to generate demand across the country.

Nath's appointment is seen by analysts as an attempt to push that agenda.
