World Economic Forum 2018 was held in India in 2018. The Prime Minister Narendra Modi said what the world wants to hear.
India is currently reported to restrict imports in order to force foreign companies to manufacture their products on Indian soil. This is a protectionist policy.
When President Xi Jinping appeared at the World Economic Forum he said China is a role model to be emulated around the world. Many analysts have reported that China too is a protectionist country that pays lip service to free trade.
