Posted by Reading Time: < 1 minute

Sept. 7 – The new issue of India Briefing Magazine is online and can be downloaded by subscribers for free. (To apply for a complimentary subscription, please click here).

Titled “What India Wants,” the magazine takes in the recent political events this year with the Congress Party obtaining a majority in the Indian Parliament, and examines exactly what opportunities this government is likely to create for foreign investment in the country. With a new foreign trade policy just having been drafted, we examine investment areas of interest to multinational investors. Discussed is the question “Why India Now?” in which the case for India as a potent FDI destination is examined, FDI trends in India, and FDI policy and the regulatory environment.

We also discuss and examine the various types of FDI routes into Indi, from those requiring a purely standard application, to those requiring government approval. Investment sectors are explored, including the huge services industry, infrastructure development and needs, computers and IT, telecommunications, housing and real estate, construction, auto, energy, mining and chemicals, and the agricultural industry. A key sector analysis is included, while an overview of India’s recently signed free trade agreement with ASEAN completes the issue.
