Case Study on Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in Indian Tourism

Introduction: One of the most notable features of economic globalization has been the increased importance of foreign direct investment around the World. Some view is as an engine of economic growth and development while others look upon it as a panacea for all ills. It is, however, important to weigh the costs and the benefits of FDI to gauge whether FDI has positive impact on economic development. FDI has the potential to generate employment, raise productivity, enhancing competitiveness of the domestic economy through transfer skills and technology, strengthening infrastructure, enhance exports and contribute to the long-term economic development of the world’s developing countries. More than ever, countries at all levels of development seek to leverage FDI for development. We in India see FDI as a developmental tool in all sectors and tourism has no exceptions.
