About the Seminar
FDI in retail has been a debated issue. Views of stakeholders are sharply divided about its welfare implications in the country. This would be one of the important election issues; manifestos of political parties would discuss this prominently. In this seminar the author would try to analyze the experiences of other countries and understand the possible outcome of FDI in retail for India.
