Abstract:

This is a study of Canadian companies that do business in India. It is based principally upon dozens of face-to-face, on-the-record interviews (even on sensitive subjects such as corruption) with executives of those companies both in Canada and in India. To a large extent, it allows those executives to tell their story. The project seeks to determine why Canadian companies chose India, what they see as its opportunities and challenges, how Indian business culture differs from business culture elsewhere, what the security problems are, what Canadian business would like government to do to help, what are the lessons to be learned and what business can expect to encounter in the subcontinent. This study examines why performance has not been better and makes recommendations on what needs to be done both by business and by government.
