Welcome to India
Prime Minister of India
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the India portal of the “Commonwealth of Nations” website.
India is an ancient civilization but a young nation. The ideal of ‘unity in diversity’ is embedded in its multilingual, multi-cultural and multi-religious ethos. It is a country endowed with great natural beauty, rich cultural heritage and fascinating diversity.
Today, India is increasingly getting integrated with the world as an open economy and an open society with a vision to ensure all round economic and social progress for its citizens.
India shares the Commonwealth values of tolerance, pluralism and equality of all people and looks forward to further strengthening its cooperation with all member countries of the Commonwealth.
I invite you to discover India.
