Uber’s focus in India

Early this year,  Uber’s COO Barney Harford, in his four-day maiden trip to India, spoke about Uber’s plans and investments for India, and how the country is key to Uber’s performance in the coming years.  He said that the company will be doubling its investment in India and will infuse in funds of an undisclosed amount to expand its products, partnerships and employee base in the country.
