Not all FDI is equal, said Sasidaran Gopalan on Financial Express

Not all FDI is equal, as Dr Sasidaran Gopalan and his co-author point out in two op-ed on the Financial Express.

In an op-ed titled “FDI inflows: Who is investing in India and in what sectors?” published on January 11, 2015, the authors explore the types and origins of Foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows into India.

In the next op-ed titled “Getting better FDI” published on January 19, 2015, the authors point out that India sees a larger share of mergers and acquisitions (M&As) than greenfield investments, compared to China.  They suggest it’s important to distinguish between M&A and greenfield matter from a policy perspective.  They propose that Indian policy-makers should be more innovative in formulating policies that attract FDI that better support domestic development, such as the Make in India program, while complying with WTO rules.
