Poverty Reduction under Economic Reforms
Although over 70% of our populations are currently dependent or agriculture, we have to recognize that agriculture is an activity that creates goods, which are surplus in most part of the world. We have to shift 25-30 percent of our people from agriculture to manufacturing. The great challenge is how to create manufacturing jobs that can absorb up to 100 million people. India has a great advantage in terms of costs and skills in manufacturing. The key is to find international companies, which will source components from India. This can be in electronics, auto parts, telecommunications, healthcare products, etc.
Key words: Poverty, Global integration, Survey, Education.
