    India: Land of Cultural Diversity; Land of Opportunity India: Land of Cultural Diversity; Land of Opportunity Presentation Transcript

    • India: Land of Cultural Diversity; Land of Opportunity Presented by Jean Mozolic 2009 ITSA Spring Meeting Orlando, FL April 16 - 18
    • India What comes to mind?
    •  
    • Why India?*
      • India has nearly one quarter of the World's population
      • India has been growing at 6% or better rates for a decade and at an 8% or better level for the last 3 years.  Indian growth in its service economy has been historic and manufacturing economy is now ramping up sharply.
      • The advantages of low cost and skilled made India a globally competitive manufacturing destination India also has offered talent pool of skilled professionals and English speaking population
      • India has increasing disposable incomes and significant domestic demand.  Rising per capita income and changing demographic distribution are conducive to growth. India has the highest proportion of population below 35 years-70 percent (potential buyers), which means that 130 million people will get added to the working population between 2003 and 2009.
      • The government is also pursuing reforms and liberalization
      • At present, over 200 of the Fortune 500 companies from the U.S., the UK, Germany, France, Japan, Netherlands, South Korea, Switzerland, Canada, and Sweden are present in India.
      • A favorable foreign investment environment: freedom of entry and exit, investment, location, choice of technology, import and export, and rule of law.
      • India has increasingly moved from an agro based economy and has emerged as a service oriented economy. Today India produces more than 50,000 computer professionals and 360,000 engineering and management graduates each year
      • Developed and well regulated banking system of over 63,000 branches supported by a number of international banks, insurance joint ventures, national and state level financial institutions.
      • WTO commitments
    • Challenges*
      • Although India has tremendous potential, the reality of India today is that it is still a developing economy with a great deal of poverty. 
      • Infrastructure inadequacies in rural and urban areas: roads, ports, airports, communication, and power have constrained India's growth.
      • Bureaucratic red tape, rigid labor laws, and its inability to build infrastructure fast enough also holds India back
      • Some research indicated that some of the factors that prevent the fast growth of foreign direct investment (FDI) across the states of India include labor conflicts and market regulations, institutional entry barriers,  poorly functioning financial markets, limited domestic demand, credit and market conditions, and other state-level economic indicators.
      • Tariff rates continue to remain high by international standards.
      • There is a lack of decentralized decision-making at the level of state governments
      • Banking and insurance systems are not competitive
      • Labor laws are overly stringent
        • * Excerpts from www.business-in-asia.com , India Homepage, Runckel & Associates, Inc.

    • India – Fun Facts
      • Iron Pillar of Delhi
        • 7 meters tall; 6MT
        • Erected between 375 AD – 414 AD in honor of Lord Vishnu and King Chandragupta.
        • The pillar is 98% wrought iron.
        • It has withstood corrosion* for 1600 years, despite harsh weather.
      • *In a report published in the journal Current Science , R.
      • Balasubramaniam of the IIT Kanpur explains how the
      • pillar's resistance to corrosion is due to a passive
      • protective film at the iron-rust interface. The presence of
      • second phase particles (slag and unreduced iron oxides)
      • in the microstructure of the iron, that of high amounts of
      • phosphorus in the metal, and the alternate wetting and
      • drying existing under atmospheric conditions, are the three
      • main factors in the three-stages formation of that
      • protective passive film.

    • Key Industries Overview Automotive, Aerospace, Steel, Paper & Pulp, IT
    • Automotive Industry
      • The Automotive Industry in India is one of the largest industries and a key sector of the economy.
      • The Indian automotive industry started from 1991with the government’s de-licensing of the sector and subsequent opening up for 100 per cent FDI through automatic route. Since then many large global companies have set up their facilities in India taking the production of vehicle from 2 million in 1991 to 9.7 million in 2006.   At present, India is the world's
        • Largest tractor and three-wheel vehicle producer.
        • Second largest two-wheel vehicle producer.
        • Fourth largest commercial vehicle producer.
        • Eleventh largest passenger car producer.
    • Automotive Industry
      • Future Plans:   The Government has prepared a ten-year Automotive Mission Plan (AMP) to draw a future plan of action and remove obstacles in the way of competition, such as that required infrastructure be put in place well in time to alleviate its constraining impact on the growth.   The plan envisages a tax holiday for the industry on investments exceeding $225,000, 100% tax deductions of export profits, and deductions of 50% on foreign-exchange earnings. It also calls for a one-stop clearance for foreign-direct-investment proposals in the sector and deductions of 30% of net income for 10 years for new industrial undertakings.   To bring down the cost of power and fuel, which accounts for 6% of the manufacturing costs in the auto sector, captive power generation would be encouraged to enable industries to access reliable, quality and cost-effective power.
    • Automotive Industry
      • Investment : Among the car companies that are investing in India are US automakers General Motors and Ford, Germany's BMW and DaimlerChrysler AG, France's Renault, Japan's Suzuki, Toyota and Honda, and South Korea's Hyundai.
      • Auto Components: There is also a boom in auto ancillary companies. India is an attractive outsourcing destination for global auto companies because of its strong engineering skills and low costs. Sourcing parts from India is 10-20% cheaper for US auto makers and about 50% cheaper for their European counterparts.  
        • This industry grew by over 28 percent between 1995 and 1998, and has been sustaining double digit growth, clocking 16 percent in 2004-05, and 15 percent in 2005-06. 
        • The Indian auto component industry is quite comprehensive with around 500 firms in the organized sector producing practically all automotive components; there are more than 10,000 firms total.
        • India’s component industry now has the capability to manufacture the entire range of auto-components, for example, engine parts, drive, transmission parts, suspension and braking parts, electricals, body and chassis parts, equipment, etc  
      • The Industry's Challenge: Even though the automotive industry is robust, car manufacturers are complaining that the government's frequent change in policies is not encouraging the industry. Changing the policies and guidelines frequently severely hurts the companies’ plans. It also affects investment decisions in the country

From the drawing board to its commercial launch, the concept, development and productionisation of the car has overcome several challenges. It is to the credit of the team at Tata Motors that a car once thought impossible by the world is now a reality. I hope it will provide safe, affordable, four-wheel transportation to families who till now have not been able to own a car. We are delighted in presenting the Tata Nano to India and the world.” The Tata Nano is currently being manufactured at the company’s Pantnagar plant in Uttarakhand in limited numbers. The new dedicated plant, at Sanand in Gujarat, will be ready in 2010 with an annualized capacity of 350,000 cars. Eventually, Tata predicts its Nano factory will generate 10,000 jobs, both directly and indirectly.

    • Boeing and Tata Industries
      • CHICAGO, Feb. 14, 2008 -- The Boeing Company [NYSE: BA] and Tata Industries Limited of India have agreed on a plan to form a joint-venture company that will initially include more than US$500 million of defense-related aerospace component work in India for export to Boeing and its international customers…"I am very excited to announce this agreement," said Jim Albaugh, president and CEO of Boeing Integrated Defense Systems. "It represents another step
      • in our commitment to India, in this case by linking the capabilities and heritages of these two companies, in order to bring real and lasting value to India's aerospace industry, while making Boeing products more globally competitive."
      • It is the intent of Boeing and Tata not only to utilize existing Tata manufacturing capability, but also to develop new supply sources throughout the Indian manufacturing and engineering communities for both commercial and defense applications.
      • "This joint venture between Tata and Boeing is an important part of our strategy to build capabilities in defense and aerospace," said Ratan Tata, chairman of the Tata Group. "I look forward to the joint venture becoming a world-class facility in India."
      • Manufacturing capabilities established within the joint-venture company would in later phases be leveraged across multiple Boeing programs, including the Medium Multi-Role Combat Aircraft (MMRCA) competition. In the first phase of the agreement, Boeing would potentially issue contracts for work packages to the joint-venture company involving defense-related component manufacturing on Boeing's F/A-18 Super Hornet for the U.S. Navy and Royal Australian Air Force, CH-47 Chinook and/or P-8 Maritime Patrol Aircraft... "Boeing is strengthening and deepening its partnerships with Indian industry through a wide range of new teaming opportunities," said Ian Thomas, president of Boeing India. "Our joint venture with Tata marks a significant milestone in our ongoing journey to build world-class aerospace and defense manufacturing capability in India." Boeing's history in India reaches back more than 60 years, marked by success in working with airline customers, parts suppliers, research institutes and others to provide products and services.
    • Congress approves U.S.- India nuclear deal excerpt from LA Times, October 2, 2008 “… After three years of negotiation, Congress gave final approval Wednesday to a U.S.-India nuclear agreement that its advocates say will form a lasting strategic alliance between the United States and the world's largest democracy. … The agreement, which the Bush administration considers a significant foreign policy achievement, would end a 30-year ban on sales of nuclear fuel and technology that was imposed after India tested and developed a nuclear bomb. India has agreed to open its civilian nuclear facilities to international inspection under the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, though its eight military nuclear plants would not be subject to scrutiny…”

      • “… India calls for renewable energy partnership with U.S. Washington (IANS): India has suggested a strategic partnership between Indian and U.S. business focusing on three Rs - renewables, reusables and recyclables - to meet the twin challenges of climate change action and energy security.
      • "If energy is not to become a constraint on our growth — the growth of India and the U.S. and the global economy as a whole, then a relatively rapid and significant shift to renewable and non-conventional energy sources becomes inevitable," Shyam Saran, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's Special Envoy for Climate Change, said here on Tuesday.
      • "Both climate change action and energy security dictate this," he said addressing members of the U.S. India Business Council, a trade association representing 300 of the largest U.S. companies investing in India and global Indian companies.
      • Even as he was speaking, a U.S. trade mission was in India to discuss business opportunities in the field of solar energy. This was the Obama administration's first trade mission to India…”
