Insights and career prospects for our Online certification course on Foreign Direct Investment

Since the Liberalisation and privatisation of the Indian Economy in the 1990s, the amount of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) has only grown. The recent trends in the investment market where all the major players are aiming at getting a share in the local markets, India is proved to be one of the most welcoming economies as its one of the fastest-growing economies in the world. With the increase in FDI in the past few years and with the new government regulations and rules pertaining to FDI, it has become imperative for lawyers, law students, business owners, and managers to understand this concept.

There has been a lot of demand for lawyers or professionals who are expert in investments laws in the country as in the year 2017-2018 the Indian Economy has seen around 37 Billion Dollars of FDI inflow from 18 countries around the world. The scope for the practice in investment laws in India is very good as there are constant issues and disputes that arise with the investment treaties between 2 countries etc. To understand all these aspects which are attached to the FDI regulations and laws, it becomes important to understand how the policy is being framed the theories behind the concept of FDI, the sectors in which the FDI inflow is welcomed, etc.

The recent policy changes with respect to FDI inflow in the field of E-commerce, where the government said that the new policy for e-commerce bars companies from selling products exclusively on their online portals. Online entities with foreign investments cannot offer products sold by retailers in which they hold an equity stake and further elaborates that the E-commerce giants such as Amazon, Walmart owned Flipkart cannot stock their inventory with more than 25% of the goods from on single vendor etc. These changes made to the policy gives great scope for research and study as to look into the factors which influenced these changes in India.

The acquisition of Flipkart by Walmart last year for an amount of 16 Billion Dollars is considered to be the biggest inflow of FDI in the recent past in the field of E-Commerce in India. There have been cases in which the Indian Companies has also done Foreign Direct Investments in foreign countries, where Tata Steels acquired the European Steel Company Corus. In this way with the global presence practice of the Companies around the world, the amount of inflow and outflow of the FDI will only keep increasing. So, it becomes important to have a keen interest in investment laws in India to get a great area of practice.
