Le rôle de l'État dans l'économie en Inde : entre libéralisation et réforme des entreprises publiques


  • Satchidanand Seethanen


This article studies the role played by the government (State) in the dynamics of regulation of the Indian economy. Seen from a historical perspective the economic reforms launched since 1991 show that India’s decision to liberalise the economy did not affect in whatsoever way the fundamental role of the state in India’s economy. A study of the reforms particularly in the public sector reveals the systematic importance of the State in various ways in the productive field, irrespective of the increasing internal or external liberalisations. Our study on the role of the State in the Indian economy allows us to conclude that the cultural model of India remains that of a country highly dominated by a strong state which, nevertheless, is open to criticism.
