ARTICLES AT A GLANCE

 

1

A richer future for India / Diana Farrell and Adil S Zainulbhai [McKinsey Quarterly, 2004 Special Edition)

India's economy has made real progress, but further liberalization will be needed to sustain its growth. The country now has 40 million people looking for work, and an additional 35 million will join the labor force over the next three years. Creating jobs for all these Indians will require more dynamic and competitive industries across the economy. The article argues that opening up to foreign competition, not hiding from it, is the answer. Economic Liberalisation and FDI in India

Korean perspective on FDI in India : Hyundai Motors' industrial cluster [Economic and Political Weekly, 31 July 2004]

Since the laungh of reforms, Korean companies have invested in joint ventures or greenfield projects in automobiles, consumer goods and others. This case study of Hyundai Motor Industries, set against an exploration of India's FDI experience from a Korean perspective, indicates that industrial clusters are playing an important role in economic activity. The article argues that the key to promoting FDI inflows into India may lie in industries and products that are technology - intensive and have economies of scale and significant domestic content.
