International Trade and Industrial Development in India: Emerging Trends, Patterns and Issues

C. Veeramani (Author) R. Nagaraj (Author)

The economic liberalisation of the early 1990s is a significant milestone in the economic history of India. Two decades hence, this book provides a meaningful assessment of the liberalisation experience and a critical account of the structure and performance of India’s trade and industrial sectors following the policy decisions taken during that time.

Drawing from theory, empirical literature, case studies and econometric evaluations, the chapters provide in-depth and wide-ranging assessments of how firm, industry, product and country characteristics interact to determine trade and industrial performance. They study recent trends in manufacturing productivity, regional inequality and specialisation in manufacturing output, structure and performance of small-scale enterprises, and the export performance of agricultural commodities to present a tapestry of the Indian experience of liberalisation.

The book provides a balanced and updated analysis of various emerging issues in the areas of India’s trade and industry at macro and micro-economic levels and discusses the following questions: How can India’s participation in global production networks be strengthened? How do we expand exports of labour intensive products? What have been the policy lessons from the past? What are the structural and policy-induced impediments to growth and competitiveness?

By considering industries and products as the units of analysis, this book sets the stage for further case studies and econometric analysis using detailed firm- and plant-level data. It will be valuable for students and scholars of economics, commerce and development studies.
