Why an industrial policy is crucial

  • No major country has managed to reduce poverty or sustain economic growth without a robust manufacturing sector
  • The contribution of manufacturing to GDP in 2017 was only about 16%, a stagnation since the economic reforms began in 1991. The contrast with the major Asian economies is significant. For example, Malaysia roughly tripled its share of manufacturing in GDP to 24%, while Thailand’s share increased from 13% to 33% (1960-2014).
  • In India manufacturing has never been the leading sector in the economy other than during the Second and Third Plan periods.
