What is at the heart of India’s growth story? A plethora of economic theories would say it is our urban spaces: If the country must realise its potential and achieve the $5-trillion economy goal, rapid urbanisation must propel development.

But what if someone says it is the country’s tiger reserves that serve the economy like no other sector? A recent study that attempted to quantify economic services and benefits that tiger reserves produce should settle the issue.

What is a main driver for the Indian economy? Exactly: the tiger.

A report shows that the economical value of tiger reserves is astronomical. One tiger reserve even shows the incredible return of investment of 7500.

Can you imagine to invest one dollar and get $ 7500 back?

Q) The first step of building connect is awareness. But unlike Thailand or Indonesia where historical links helped build awareness, India does not have any historical links with Vietnam. How does one make Indians aware of Vietnam without the benefit of historical links?

A) India does have a historical link with Vietnam. But while most Indians are aware of their historical connect with Thailand, Cambodia or Bali, thanks to Ashoka’s Buddhism outreach or the linkages created by India’s Pallava, Chola, and Kalinga kingdoms, not many are aware of India’s history with Vietnam. The Champa kingdom, which started in southern Vietnam during the 4th century AD, was influenced by Hinduism. This kingdom flourished for over 1,000 years, a significant period when one looks at the average tenure of kingdoms in the medieval era.

Commentary

Now Vietnam is being called a tiger and in this interview with Sourajit Aiyer, Consultant-South Asia Fast Track & author of Bay of Bengal, he explains the underlying elements.

But as we all know: tigers have vanished from Vietnam because the government refused to take necessary action.

Why trust Vietnam now as an investor?
