First store in India
New Delhi: Wal-Mart Stores Inc is set to open its first cash-and-carry centre in India next week in a signal of foreign investor confidence in India just days after a reform-minded Congress-led coalition won an election.
The entry of multinational retailers like Wal-Mart into India has been mired in controversy, with moves to open up the sector opposed by the previous government's former leftist allies and small traders fearful of job losses.
