Cashew: Cashing in on Exports

India is the world's largest producer of cashew, but needs to fully utilise and expand its potential if it is to keep pace with growing global demand and stay ahead of the rapidly emerging competition in this commodity.

Exim Policy 2002-07

The new Exim policy will cover five years, making it coterminus with the Tenth Plan. Since the policy is mainly concerned with export trade procedures, it can be argued that a definitive programme of improved procedures for the entire Plan period might be of assistance in achieving the Plan targets of exports. It would, however, be a pity if further improvements were held back, even when they were demonstrably needed, because of the five-year term of the policy.

What Size the 'New' Economy?

Efforts need to be made to scientifically assess the size, coverage and growth of the 'new', or information technology, economy in India. Econometric models have so far ignored the sector in their analyses and forecasts, as no benchmark estimates are available. The estimates can be attempted on the basis of analysis of GDP estimates of IT-using sectors. The estimates can be cross-checked from private consumption vector, IT spending, and physical indicators of the progress of the IT sector. It is important to study the effect of the emerging IT economy on productivity to gauge the GDP contribution of the IT sector.
