About The Book

The economic integration of India with the rest of the world is a reality that can neither be stopped nor reversed. This is evidenced by the level of foreign exchange reserves at 35% of GDP (March 2008), the volume of international business (exports at more than 10% of GDP and imports around 14%), the volume of capital inflows and the extent of movements in the financial market rates. This phenomenon has given rise to several challenges as well as opportunities. For instance, maintaining competitive edge in the global market through innovations and creativity is one such challenge, the availability and absorption of the latest technology, new skill and exposure to the greater world of business, the possibilities of tapping the global market and investable funds are some of the opportunities.

The present publication entitles "Entrepreneurship, Growth and Economic Integration − A Linkage", incorporates technical papers and proceedings of national seminars and workshops conducted by Lala Lajpat Rai Institute of Management during the academic year 2007-08.
