Indian cities: the fastest growing in Asia
India truly is one of the world’s most vibrant, active construction markets; one market that just got more appealing for international investors.
According to a report from Oxford Economics ranking Asia’s 30 largest cities, India’s urban areas will see the fastest economic growth throughout the continent over the next five years. Delhi, India’s capital city, is expected to lead the charge.
