Ananya Ghosh Dastidar

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the role of export-led growth in the Indian context, placing it in context of overall industrialization strategy and trade policy, as it underscores key elements affecting India’s export performance in the pre- and post-reform periods. It reviews a large body of literature and identifies the key aspects of trade and industrial policy that have affected growth and employment creation in the manufacturing sector and in this context analyses India’s performance with respect to exports of manufactures, highlighting some of the problems faced by Indian exports and the ways these can be addressed by policymakers. Alongside it discusses conceptual issues related to export-led growth, outlines analytical frameworks that may be used to study its implications and reviews evidence on the empirical validity of the ‘export-led growth hypothesis’, in the Indian context.

Keywords:   causality, domestic market, employment, export performance, export-led growth, foreign direct investment (FDI), Indian exports, industrialization, merchandise exports, reforms, trade liberalization
