In 2012, India announced that it would allow greater foreign investment in relatively closed sectors, such as retail, airlines, insurance, and broadcasting. These efforts at reform still face challenges and remain politically contentious. But if the reforms succeed, Canadian companies could see a vast range of opportunities open up to them throughout the Indian economy. This briefing identifies the areas where Canadian firms are best positioned to succeed in penetrating or expanding their presence in the rapidly growing Indian market.
The briefing is part of the Conference Board Global Commerce Centre’s Tool Kit for Growth Markets. The kit includes tools and strategies for Canadian companies—and those who develop policies to support them—to succeed in fast-growth markets.
