A Study of India’s Investment Environment, Major FDI Inflows and Suggestion for Taiwan’s Businessmen
About the Book
The report provides a detailed analysis of the investment environment in India with respect to Taiwan. The extensive primary data collection has highlighted challenges and opportunities of India's effort to forge deeper ties in its neighbourhood. The process to promote increased collaboration with Taiwan is already underway. Though barriers to investment continue to exist, India must expedite the process of domestic reforms to create an attractive business environment. The focus on select sectors and states helps provide granular information useful to policymakers, not only with respect to Taiwan, but more general, related to all domestic and foreign investments in India.
