The BRIC States and Outward Foreign Direct Investment

This chapter explains the process of outward foreign direct investment (FDI) from India. Since the liberalisation of its economy in the early 1990s, India has experienced significant economic reforms. The Indian government had loosed regulations for the outbound flow of capital and had eliminated the requirement of approval for foreign joint ventures during the various stages of economic liberalisation. The concentration of Indian outward FDI in the developed countries, especially Europe, is its most prominent characteristic. It has also developed in response to the government's relaxation of the laws governing outward expansion from the 1990s onward. The most important barriers to India's accession to a multilateral services investment treaty seem to be its desire to assure knowledge transfer in connection with FDI and its foreign ownership limits in financial services and telecommunications.
