Malaysia: Challenges and Issues, ed by Das, J. And H. Arora, Bloomsbury, 2014.

Abstract

Indian exports as a major contributor to the country’s economic growth experiencing a plummeting growth during last few years. Various trade agreements with partner countries in search of new market destination and products to maintain its growth rate have taken place. However justification of these trade agreements has not been questioned. This paper aims to understand the bilateral trade performance and relevance of trade agreement with Malaysia. Using trade intensity and complementarity index we found that the trade agreement between India and Malaysia is not based on the actual trade performance.

Role of Technological Factors in the Price: A Cross Country Comparison across Server Vendors

World Review of Business Research, Vol 4, No. 1, pp.36-47, March 2014

Abstract

The presence of alternative technology platform and alternative technology architecture provided by rival brands have added a new dimension in the quality adjustment for the construction of price indexes for computer server. The earlier attempts to construct hedonic price index have mainly focused on mainframe segment of the computer market and hence did not take into account alternative technology architecture. Moreover, the contribution of “Moore’s Law” has implication on these studies as the presence of next level technology can provide better performance at a cheaper cost.
This research article analyses the technological determinants of server prices with the help of hedonic regression for three major brands namely, IBM, HP and SUN. The analysis shows that alternative technology architectures play an important role in the variation in server price while the essential software component, types of operating system (OS), do not play any significant role. At the same time this analysis also shows that the price variation tendency based on the components of the system remain almost same across countries under study (in India, China and Singapore) irrespective of the vendors and draws conclusion regarding their pricing strategies in different countries.

Economic and Political Determinants of Bilateral FDI between Italy and India

FORE Working Paper, Number WP2014/03, 2014

Abstract

Albeit globalization has resulted in a greater number of projects involving international capital flows among the countries, bilateral Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) flows between many pairs of countries are yet to occur. Hence, determinants of bilateral FDI flows have drawn attention among the researchers. However, these studies considering either economic factors or political factors explain only partially the variation in total FDI flows. No study has considered both the factors together to analyse the same. This paper tries to bridge that gap by adopting an econometric analysis to explain the bilateral FDI flows between India and Italy. This study adopts a gravity approach and observes that along with the economic factors, the political factors have a strong influence in determining the bilateral FDI flows between India and Italy.

FORE Working Paper No. 2015/16

Abstract

Deep rooted relation between India and Uzbekistan since Indus civilization grew from official to people’s friendship. As a result every possible aspect of bilateral relations has been tapped. Still the trade relation between the two countries leaves scope for improvement. In search of greater scope and possibilities in enhancing trade, this paper revisits the bilateral trade relation between the two countries. Using descriptive statistics and ad velorem equivalent index, this paper finds that the import restriction is one of the major hindrance for improving the bilateral merchandise trade between the two countries.

Abstract

Global interdependence alters international business landscape. To sustain economic growth in the global competitive market, developing countries are increasingly relying on foreign investment and technology transfer as important vehicles to catch up with the advanced countries. While in the theoretical model, FDIs are expected to have positive impact on the local economy, empirical evidences are doubtful on the same especially in case of developing economies. With a promising economic growth and with its new market oriented policies, Vietnam attracted increasing amount of FDI in recent years. In this paper using OLS and Fixed effect and GLS Random effect model for sector wise and ownership wise panel model we found that there is no significant impact of FDI on Total Factor Productivity (TFP) suggesting a more detailed FDI strategies are required to increase TFP and to sustain economic growth.
