At a round table with global CEOs in Davos, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed everyone by their first name, took questions and invited ideas, participants told NDTV on Monday.

Reliance chairman Mukesh Ambani, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, ICICI Bank's Chanda Kochhar and Wipro's Azim Premji were among those who attended the event.

"It was a very fantastic event, PM himself was so involved in not just communicating what he had done in India, but was very open to listening to what more can be done...to every point he had a response," Chanda Kochhar told NDTV.

"He was very participative, very responsive and as usual, very, very inspirational," said Ms Kocchar.

Later today, PM Modi will be the first Indian prime minister to speak at the World Economic Forum in over two decades. He will debut at the opening session, where his key message will be that India is open for business and its economy can contribute to global growth.

Those who attended the round table said many global CEOs spoke about how they were increasing investments in India.

The energy pundit also felt it was a "really big deal" that an Indian prime minister is there after a long time.

Vedanta's Anil Agarwal said he found it "amazing" how much he remembered for everybody. "He addressed everybody by personal name...Today, at Davos, everybody is talking about Modi. People are not getting enough of him," Mr Agarwal told NDTV.
