NEW DELHI -- Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi scored two big wins November in his push to improve the country's infrastructure. One was a nuclear power deal with Japan, and the other was an agreement with the U.K. to jointly establish a fund for infrastructure investment.

These moves are a big step forward for India, where inadequate infrastructure is hampering economic growth.
