This paper examines emerging patterns and economic implications of Indian foreign direct investment from a historical perspective against the backdrop of the evolving role of developing-country firms (Emerging Multinational EnterpriseS, EMES) as an important force of economic globalisation. The novelty of the analysis lies in its specific focus on the implications of changes in trade and investment policy regimes and the overall investment climate for internationalisation of domestic companies and the nature of their global operations.
