The rapid international expansion of Chinese businesses has evoked mixed perceptions in host countries and among policymakers. This literature review critically analyses rigorous studies on the motivation, background, strategy, and impact of Chinese outward foreign direct investment and the emergence of Chinese multinational enterprises (MNEs). It is thus informative for the next wave of academic research on Chinese and emerging market MNEs in international business, political economy, economic geography and political sciences. Written by two experts in the field, this valuable study provides an important backdrop for academics who intend to understand emerging market MNEs in order to advise policymakers.

In 30 years, India will celebrate 100 years of independence. Based on where the nation stands today, it is reasonable to assume that in 2047, it will be counted among developed countries. India’s economy is set to become the third largest in the world behind the United States and China. Indians, by and large, are enterprising people and have a fascination for technology. With dynamic leadership, India should be able to realize its dreams for the future. The country has a free road to travel. However, there are obstacles that India must cross, both external and internal. India is located in a tense neighborhood surrounded by expansionist China and unstable Pakistan. Internally, a number of potholes may derail India’s progress such as the Naxalite insurgency, the spread of populism in some states, widespread corruption, growing inequality among the masses and dire environmental decay. Even with these problems, India’s future looks bright.

In 1950, after three years of independence, India became a constitutional democracy. The Constitution abolished untouchability, the centuries-old lingering issue. At the same time, while Hindi was identified as the national language, for the unity of the country, for 15 years English was accorded the same status to facilitate communication between non-Hindi-speaking states/people and those who spoke Hindi. Finally, following the Constitution, the first free election was held in 1952, a remarkable feat for a country without any prior experience in the matter. After five years, the second election was held in 1957, establishing the tradition of a vibrant democracy for the future.
