TOKYO/PALO ALTO, U.S. -- Google CEO Sundar Pichai announced Monday a roughly $10 billion fund that will invest in Indian businesses and infrastructure projects over the next five to seven years.

The move comes as recent anti-China sentiment in India, stemming from the border clashes, offers American tech companies a unique opening to reap market share without strong competition from Chinese rivals.
