Where are we heading to? Part 1

Growth in Indian Industry

The Indian economy’s business sentiment has improved indicating a path of recovery.

🙂

Let’s see, why do we say this?

A surprise improvement was witnessed in the IIP numbers for June 2009 at 7.8%.

The WPI based inflation has softened to below zero level.

🙂

However, the prices of items of mass consumption (food articles) show no signs of softening and have risen substantially due to supply side constraints.

😦

The performance of inward investments has been fairly well.

The Foreign Direct Investment flows surged 13% at $4.3 bn for April-May 2009-10.

🙂

Painting a picture of a resilient economy, Finance Minister believes the economy will grow by more than 6% despite a fear of drought and the decline in the sowing of the kharif crop, such as rice.

The strength of the economy in the slowdown is the large services sector, which has, historically, been less affected by cyclical downturns than manufacturing, a strong farm sector, robust savings rate, ambitious infrastructure development programme and upbeat foreign investors.

🙂

The 224-million-tonnes cement industry is yet again set to strike a growth of 10 per cent in June.

The production numbers from the top cement makers are anything to go by, the continuous robust growth will be maintained.

🙂

The Rs 82,000 crore Indian FMCG industry primarily seeking the implementation of the GST (Goods & Services Tax) by April 1, 2010 in the upcoming Union Budget, expects fiscal measures will spur growth of the FMCG sector in rural as well as urban India.

🙂

Further, in a sign of confidence in the Indian markets, Foreign Institutional Investors pumped in over $6 billion, or about Rs. 29,940 crore this year, with over $1 billion coming in July alone.

An analysis of FIIs activity shows that overseas investors are the net purchasers of Indian stocks worth $6.18 billion (Rs 29,940.30 crore) from January to July this year.

🙂

Also, with the India-Asean (Association of South-East Asian Nations)  that inked the long awaited Free Trade Agreement (FTA) for duty-free import and export of 4,000 products over a period of eight years at the Asean economic ministers meeting held in Thailand, the India-Asean trade is likely to surpass $50 billion by 2010.
