  • The strategic consequences of Indian economic performance in the last two decades are clearly evident.

  • Growth and outward orientation has helped India to forge new relationships with its neigbours in Asia and with major powers

  • India has also moved towards regional integration (SAFTA, India- ASEAN; India-Japan, Singapore; AUS, NZ, bilateral deals, negotiations are on with many partners)


India and regionalism
India and Regionalism the last two decades are clearly evident.

  • Compared to its earlier faith in global trade deals, India has also taken an aggressive approach towards regionalism.

  • The collapse of Doha development round of WTO negotiations pushed many countries including India to look for alternatives to multilateral negotiations to improve their trade positions.

  • Since 2005 India has put its proposed regional trade agreements on fast track.


Indian exports region wise
Indian Exports Region wise the last two decades are clearly evident.


  • In the past, India had adopted a cautious approach to regionalism, and was engaged in only a few bilateral/regional initiatives, mainly through Preferential Trade Agreements (PTAs) or through open regionalism.

  • In recent years, it has started concluding Comprehensive Economic Cooperation Agreements (CECAs) with many countries.


  • The CECAs cover regionalism, and was engaged in only a few bilateral/regional initiatives, mainly through Preferential Trade Agreements (PTAs) or through open regionalism. Free Trade Agreements (with limited negative lists) in goods, services, investment and other identified areas of economic cooperation.

  • Some important signed agreements include South Asian Free Trade Area (SAFTA), and agreements with ASEAN, Japan, Singapore, Afghanistan, Singapore, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Nepal, MERCOSUR etc. Serious negotiations are on with the EU, GCC, IBSA, South Korea, Australia, Malaysia etc


Saarc
SAARC regionalism, and was engaged in only a few bilateral/regional initiatives, mainly through Preferential Trade Agreements (PTAs) or through open regionalism.

India asean
India-ASEAN regionalism, and was engaged in only a few bilateral/regional initiatives, mainly through Preferential Trade Agreements (PTAs) or through open regionalism.

  • One significant aspect of this phase of economic growth is India’s increasing economic cooperation with Southeast Asia through regional, sub-regional and bilateral engagements.

  • After years of difficult negotiations, India finally signed a free trade agreement with ASEAN in 2009.

  • BIMSTEC

  • Mekong-Ganga Cooperation initiative

  • Bilateral trade agreements with Thailand (2003) Singapore (2005),Malaysia (2011).


India asean connectivity
India ASEAN Connectivity regionalism, and was engaged in only a few bilateral/regional initiatives, mainly through Preferential Trade Agreements (PTAs) or through open regionalism.

  • India’s economic exposure to ASEAN is still limited. One of the major reasons for this is physical connectivity with the region.

  • Although FTAs in trade, services and investment is central to India’s strategy, it is realized that infrastructure challenges could hamper growth in linkages.


  • Emerging nodes of India-ASEAN connectivity- Myanmar and Northeast India -are both weak in infrastructure.

  • At the same time, this is also an area which has difficult landscapes and infested with insurgencies.

  • The new opening in Myanmar will definitely help building connectivity further.

  • Economic development strategies within Myanmar as well as Indian Northeast could have significant impact on India-ASEAN connectivity

  • Recent years of high economic growth in countries like India and China have coincided with periods of increased oil price uncertainty.

  • India’s oil requirements for its 8-9 per cent growth every year since 2003 have been financed at increasing global oil prices.


Import dependence

  • India imports 76% of its oil, 23% of its gas and 20% of its coal.

  • Its energy imports last year exceeded $130 billion or 26% of its import bill of $ 490 billion.

  • By the end of the 12th Plan(2017) India's energy imports could be $150-$160 billion.


Indian energy security
Indian Energy Security negotiations since 2007)

  • Despite fairly low per capita consumption, India is the fourth largest consumer of energy in the world after USA, China and Russia

  • It is believed that India’s energy security can be increased by

  • diversifying both energy mix and sources of energy imports; ( 2/3 oil comes from Middle-East/ Coal is likely to continue as a major source)

  • seriously perusing overseas acquisitions of energy assets; and

  • initiating domestic policy reforms to attract foreign investment as well as improving domestic production, distribution and consumption.

    .


  • Coal remains the dominant source of primary energy. negotiations since 2007)

  • Domestic production of coal and lignite account for two-third of total production of commercial energy in 2000–01 and is projected to be about the same in 2021–22.

  • The combined share of oil and natural gas in energy consumption was about 25% in 2011–12 and is expected to be about the same in 2021–22.


Import dependence will increase
Import dependence will increase negotiations since 2007)

  • Even though domestic production of energy resources is projected to increase, import dependence will continue at a high level.

  • The main area of import will be crude oil, where nearly 78 per cent of the demand will have to be met from imports by 2017

  • Import dependence for coal is also estimated to increase from 19% in 2011–12 to 22.4 per cent in 2017 and 26 % 2022.


Energy diplomacy
Energy Diplomacy negotiations since 2007)

  • In the last few years, energy diplomacy has also become one of the main agendas of country’s foreign and security policy.

  • India is seriously perusing nuclear energy option as well as import sources beyond the Middle-East.

  • Indo-US nuclear agreement as well as consistent engagements with the countries of Eurasia, Africa and Latin America could be seen from this perspective

  • Overall, at this stage of economic modernization, India is vulnerable due to insufficient energy resources.
