Impact of Japanese and US FDI on Productivity Growth

This paper examines the impact of Japanese and US foreign direct investments (FDI) on total factor productivity growth of firms in the Indian automobile, electrical and chemical industries in the post-reforms period. The results show that Japanese affiliation has a significant positive impact on productivity growth in a firm while the impact of US affiliation is not found to be significant. The results also show that domestic firms have witnessed both efficiency growth as well as technological progress in the electrical and chemical industries in the post-reforms period.
