"Has the export-oriented manufacturing model reached its sell-by date for India?," authored by Professor Devashish Mitra, was published in Ideas for India.
As India faces the challenge of creating millions of well-paying jobs for its rapidly growing working-age population, Mitra, Gerald B. and Daphna Cramer Professor of Global Affairs, analyses which sectors and what strategies can provide these good jobs.
He posits that four factors can help the export-oriented manufacturing model succeed—further labour reforms; the signing and implementation of free trade agreements and establishing special economic zones; and participation in global supply chains.
This will allow India to leverage its labour, along with advanced-country technology, to create productive jobs.
