Abstract

Since 1990s a large number of Indian firms emerged as multinational corporations with ever increasing outflows of foreign direct investment (FDI). The present paper examines how these emerging multinationals have affected the exports from the home country. The findings from this study suggest that Indian multinationals have played an important role in promoting Indian exports in the global markets. Therefore, instituting favourable policies for promoting outward FDI (OFDI) activities of Indian multinationals could be instrumental in boosting India’s export performance.
