India is not only having increased growth but a few countries maintain such high growth, the officials told visiting Indian journalists.

"Earlier, India was important in our economic relations, but China was more important," they said adding, "this has changed. India is now as important as China in developing trade and economic relations."

reforms in the budget and introduction of VAT in states have improve the economic environment.

"The economic reforms are moving. The License Raj is being gradually taken away. System of handling companies with heavy handedness is gradually disappearing," they said praising the UPA Government for pursuing reforms despite the compulsions of coalition politics.
