Hotel Taj Palace New Delhi

Indo-US trade �For Accelerated Growth

India�s aim is to double India's share in US market from the present 1% to 2 % in the next five years. The two-way trade rose to $21.681billion in 2004-05 up from $18.035 billion in 2003-4 an increase of 20% and is expected to touch $28 billion during 2005-06, recording a significant growth of 30% over the previous fiscal.

US Businesses are looking for a retuned regulatory regime and removal of FDI ceilings

         Non-Tariff barriers in the US impede market access for various Indian products

         Huge subsidies to farmers in the US render Indian farm produce uncompetitive and act as a barrier to increase trade.

         Due to stringent sanitary norms, farm products also face market access problems.

 

Organized Retail Trade in India: Options and Opportunities

One of India's sunrise sectors, organized Retailing, is poised to transform the face of the $200 billion retail industry as multinational companies are vying to expand the mere 3% share of the organized retail sector. According to an estimate the branded domestic retail in India accounts for 4% of business, the rest being in the unorganized sector. Retail trade employs about 8% of the total workforce of India and contributes around 13% to the GDP. The government initiatives aimed at evolving a suitable FDI policy for retail sector will lead to large scale job creation, increased economic activity and value addition in farm and food sectors. The US private sector has a great deal to offer but can do that only if allowed to fully get into India.

Energy: Crucial for Growth

 To auction additional sites for exploration and drilling have created wide spread interests among the oil majors in the world. A major initiative highlighted during Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh�s   visit to the US was the US-India Energy Dialogue, designed to promote increased trade and investment in the energy. This dialogue will promote these goals through the following working groups:

a)       Oil and Gas

b)       Coal

c)       Power and Energy Efficiency

d)       New Technologies and Renewable Energy

Estimated to be a US$90 billion industry, the Oil and Gas industry is among the largest contributors to the central and state exchequers in India. Its share approximates US$13.58 billion.

American and other global companies have shown keen interest to participate in the oil and natural gas projects in India. The recent proposals

Opportunities for investors in the energy sector of India exist, but lack of a comprehensive energy policy is a barrier to foreign investment in long-term energy projects.

Banking Sector: Transformation For Globalization

Opening up of the banking sector reforms to the private sector has improved banking system in India by bringing competition, improved products, greater transparency and corporate governance.

The Banking Regulations (Amendment) Bill, 2005 intends to give private investors voting rights proportionate to their shareholdings.  This is expected to attract much needed foreign investment as it was reckoned to be a big constraint on investment by private / foreign players in the Indian Banks.

Competition, convergence and consolidation would be the key drivers of growth in the Indian Banking system.

 

Insurance: Encouraging Investment

Presently, the Government allows 26% equity limit for FDI in the insurance sector.  The Finance Minister in his budget of 2004-2005, announced the Government�s intention to hike the FDI cap on insurance sector to 49%. 

Indian insurance companies have been actively wooing the government to allow more foreign equity in their companies.  The current paid up requirements of Rs.100 crore for general and Rs.200 crore for life insurance have become difficult benchmarks for the companies to sustain, given the pace of growth of the market.  In such a scenario, the companies� feel, the injection of additional foreign equity would reduce their costs.  Insurance penetration has been low at around 2%.  The sector was liberalized for the private players towards the end of 1999 when IRDA came out with the regulations.

Capital Markets- A Huge Latent Demand

The equity market is ruling at an all time high and foreign funds are coming into the Indian market in huge amounts.

There is a need to ensure that there is no loss of investment, but robust capital formation leading to higher production, economic growth and creation of employment through effective corporate governance.

Positive tidings about the Indian economy combined with a fast-growing market have made India an attractive destination for foreign institutional investors (FIIs).

 
Civil Aviation: Partnership with US

The Civil Aviation sector is on a roll with both state-owned and private carriers adding more capacity and launching more connections globally, as air traffic to and from India continues to grow at 20 per cent annually.

The US � India Open Skies Treaty signed in April 2005 --removes all barriers on air services between the two countries. It will allow an unlimited number of U.S. carriers to serve an unlimited number of points in India - and will do the same for Indian carriers into the United States.

This agreement will result in more services, more options, more innovation, and lower prices and support initiatives such as technical assistance, jobs training and personnel exchanges.

The Indian Government is also planning to usher in a more flexible FDI regime in the civil aviation sector.  Currently the FDI cap in domestic aviation is 49%. NRI/ OCBs are permitted to invest upto 100% equity.

The New Civil Aviation Policy which is expected to be announced soon, will increase FDI ceilings, while keeping the foreign airlines out of the domestic aviation market.

Continental Airlines� Daily Service to New Delhi, India will benefit Houston 

        Continental will launch daily one-stop service from Houston�s Bush Intercontinental Airport through its New York-area hub at Newark�s Liberty International Airport to New Delhi�s Indira Gandhi International Airport beginning November 1, 2005. 

         Houston travelers to India will have the benefit of one-stop, same-carrier service through a U.S. gateway, rather than connect through European gateways at Frankfurt Germany Airport, Paris Charles de Gaulle International Airport or London Heathrow Airport. 

         Continental�s New Delhi service will reduce current travel time from Houston by at least 2 hours by eliminating transfers to other air carriers that are currently required at these European gateways. 

         Houston travelers will find Continental�s New Delhi service more convenient, as they will be able to use Continental�s exclusive facilities at Liberty International Airport to clear customs and catch a flight back to Houston without having to change terminals.   

        Houston travelers will also have the added benefit of access to Continental�s exclusive Presidents Club lounges and the opportunity to earn and redeem OnePass miles for travel to and from New Delhi on Continental.

        The new service will be operated with a 283-seat Boeing 777 aircraft with a capacity of 48 passengers in the BusinessFirst cabin and 235 in the Economy Class:

  • The BusinessFirst seat on the 777 is among the widest business class seats in the world, offering a 170-degree recline and more than six feet of sleeping space in the fully-extended position.  Other features include privacy hoods and large seat side wings for greater privacy. 

  • Economy class on the 777 is also exceptionally comfortable and spacious.  As with BusinessFirst class, every Economy class passenger has an individual seatback video system complete with video/audio channels and video games as well as an in-flight telephone with over-water capacity.
