String of Kites

In a recent LinkedIn post titled Doing business with India has never before been so attractive,  Stephen Manallack, President of the Australia India Business Council of Victoria writes that “there are many reasons for western businesses to review and upgrade their commitment to India in the year ahead. Among the positive news, a better than average monsoon, a rise in urban demand due to pay hikes for government employees and pensioners, and policy reforms by the government including a huge commitment to alternative energy – leading to 7.9 per cent gross domestic product (GDP) growth in India this year”.
