The Forum of Free Enterprise is a non-political organization founded in 1956 by A. D. Shroff and has been established to educate public opinion in India on free enterprise and a democratic way of life. The Forum publishes booklets to further its objects. The following booklet titled “China’s Remarkable Economic Growth: Some Lessons” was published in May 1997, and was authored by Minoo R. Shroff. The author analyzes the impact of economic reforms initiated by China and a remarkable transition from a wholly state-controlled economy to a semi-market one within a short span of one and a half decades. According to him, agriculture, industry, infrastructure and foreign trade are the sectors which have witnessed significant growth as a result of the reforms. Common culture and unity, education, growing inflows of Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) have been the contributing factors to the country’s high growth. However, the author acknowledges that all is not hunky-dory as only about a quarter of the population has benefited from the fruits of this rapid growth. Shroff concludes the article on an optimistic note for India and a call for action. He argues that given our technology, managerial capabilities and fairly developed financial infrastructure, we can match China’s economic performance, provided we instil discipline, confidence and a sense of nationhood in our vision and approach.
