India’s exports in 2009-10 fell 4.7% to $176.5 billion, as a late revival in demand failed to fill the vacuum created in the first half. Reforms are necessary for continued growth but even after having majority in the Centre actual investments in the first three years of the Plan demonstrate India’s ambitious plan to invest $500 billion in physical infrastructure during the 11th Plan (2007-2012) could be missed with huge slippages in key sectors like railways, roads & bridges and ports.
