India performance highlights in 2017

In India, Modi’s ‘Make in India’ programme is helping the country to become a global hub for hi-tech manufacturing, challenging Chinese dominance. Overall deal activity in Q1 2017 was driven solely by the Vodafone-Idea megamerger, which contributed more than 80% of total value. Q3 2017 was disappointing in comparison, with only six transactions valued at and above US$100 million. Change is expected as deal-makers get to grips with GST regulations.
