OIFC has organized several Investment and Interactive Meets / Road shows in different countries and also organised ‘Market Place’ during Pravasi Bhartiya Divas (PBD) in India. An electronic portal has also been launched by the Ministry to reply to the queries of potential overseas investors by OIFC and its knowledge partners to promote and facilitate economic engagement by Overseas Indians.

The annual PBDs and regional PBDs also provide a platform for facilitation of investment by overseas Indians.
