Democracy and progress in India

Sixty-five years ago this week, India’s post-independence democratic constitution went into effect, paving the way for the country to become not only a democracy but the world’s largest democracy. Today, as a country of well over a billion people encompassing great diversity of ethnicity and economic status and spanning crowded cities and remote villages, India is a paradigm of both the challenges and the successes of building a government that seeks to empower all its people.

OPIC’s success advancing development in India is a reflection of the strength of our private-sector partners, which have developed innovative solutions that address the specific challenges of this expansive country and its massive rural population.
