At the JP Morgan Global Markets Conference in Paris, Dimon told Bloomberg that India, the fastest growing major economy in the world, is on a good path due to improvements in its infrastructure and financial systems.

“I think India has done a very good job. When you look at India, it should have a very bright future. I'm not saying as a counter to China. I think we should all be reaching out to India.” Dimon said.

Dimon highlighted several positive changes in India, such as better infrastructure, increased financial support, and 700 million people now having bank accounts, which benefit the country.
