India as Number 1

Posted by: Michael Mandel on November 09

The New Economist points us to a new report on the Indian economy by Deutsche Bank. The DB report reproduces a table, which I’ve never seen before, ranking which countries are most attractive for outsourcing and offshoring. India comes in #1, well ahead of China (the original source for the table seems to be consulting firm A.T. Kearney)

I'd certainly rate India ahead of China on "political stability", but when it comes to infrastructure--from what I've read, India's ports and freight rail system are considerably inferior to China's. This will be a real holdback to industrial development unless resolved.

For outsourcing, yes, but from the standpoint of opening a business and selling there, I have heard it is almost impossible.

i wan tot ask that what do you mean by environment?
if india's business environment isnt god because of corruption and the infrastructure than why is it said ranked ahead of china?

Well, I am from India and opening businesses is no longer as difficult as a few years back... especially for those that employ white collar workers (the manufacturing businesses that take in unionised workers and need more land/ physical infrastrcuture can be still quite troublesome)

From a long term perspective, I think the environment for such businesses is (HIGH) quite good as decisons have the support across the political spectrum- unlike a china where the 'party' could clear up a village for a factory as reported in BW

The leaders in the business like Infosys and Wipro have world class management and are very much respected in Indian civil society too

China- given political risks and lack of english language skills, I would rank them poor for any knowledge based activity...

'Lord', the situation in India has changed considerably. It's fairly easy now to start off a business.

India surely is showing no signs of stopping in its rally for improvement. India has its own share of disadvantages in terms of infrastructure et al, but things are getting better at a very fast pace. English speaking population is an added advantage. I would say India definitely ranks above China.

there is no doubt that india has occupied top slot and remains so in the years ahead. concerns of quality and knowledge levels is the handwork of those outsourcing opposing lobbies.

the only concern is the rise of expenses, since it records a gdp growth rate of 8%, people's aspirations go up and outsourcing may become unattractive. in that scenario, low cost means low productivity trade-off.

i think tht yes India has commanded a strong share in the outsourcin mkt frm all over...but wid time n esply wid China going on a roll to learn English this dominant position will nt old good for long
What India needs to do is get higher up in the value chain in outsourcing....we should focus more on more technical aspects of outsourcin n leave the basics to countries like malaysia, phillipines n China.
even in manufacturin sector we need to learn to walk tht last mile giv our products tht last touch of finesse....thts wat gets u moolah in the longer run...

I am working on Indian infrastructure for the French Embassy, especially on airport infrastructure, metro and greenfield airport.
Can you give me some more details and where I can find some interesting information?
