There is a strong interest in reliance retail from strategic and financial investors and we will bring in global partners and investors for it in the next few quarters, Ambani told shareholders
In recent months, Ambanis digital platform has attracted about $20 billion from Google and Facebook. The 63 year old tycoon has identified technology and retail as future growth areas to get rid of his dependence on the energy business he inherited from his late father.
