offered the most dramatic views of the socialist era on scenic drives past the temples of modern India Now they look like sepia prints from a family album And the car that once symbolised the state and was ridden by prime ministers and presidents collectors and police chiefs now finds use chiefly as a rattletrap taxicab One which can take more passengers to the rail station than any other and whose boot can hold more fish or cauliflowers bound for market than we dare to imagine The Hindustan Motors plant which produced Ambassadors is located in Uttarpara West Bengal Just down the line is a rail station named Hindmotor an indicator of the centrality of the car to the Indian economy and to the idea of India But Hindustan Motors had been turning out only five cars a day before its plant ceased production Timidity in the face of competition and a reluctance to innovate had led to falling demand and mounting losses which crossed Rs 90 crore despite help from the West Bengal government The Ambassador is derived from a once-fashionable foreign brand the Morris Oxford III but it just grew old while younger brands like Toyota and Hyundai surged ahead Once upon a time if you didn’t want

in 1947; the Communist Party of China (CPC) proclaimed the People’s Republic of China in 1949 However the two countries are not siblings separated by two years India’s multi-party democracy is constantly compared with the one-party system of China When China grew at a blistering pace as it did for nearly three decades India’s growth rates pre-liberalisation and post-liberalisation appeared tepid and insufficient When China’s growth rate has slowed down some in India — and many in the government — seem to think it is a cause for celebration China has been the main driver of world growth for a decade Through the 1997 Asian currency crisis and through the 2008 international financial crisis China continued to grow at an unprecedented rate China became the world’s factory — from toys to shoes to steel to capital goods China also accumulated the world’s largest foreign exchange reserves which at one point stood at an unbelievable USD 4 trillion It was only a matter of time before Chinese entrepreneurs got into the leaderboard in non-manufacturing Among the world’s leading service sector companies are China Mobile China Life Insurance and Alibaba Among the world’s top 5 banks three are Chinese banks China’s focus Keen observers of China are agreed that China’s leadership remains focussed on two issues The first is to maintain the absolute control of the CPC over all organs of the State and all entities in the country and the second is to promote rapid economic growth and become the world’s largest economy In the pursuit of the latter goal China’s economy has gone through many ‘transitions’ and is undergoing one today It has to transit from manufacturing to services investment-driven to consumption-driven economy and export-led to domestic demand-led growth Besides other causal factors the pain and price of the transition are reflected in the slowdown of GDP growth and the depreciation of the currency (yuan) Despite the slowdown to 69 per cent in 2015 China had a record trade surplus of USD 595 billion Despite capital flowing out at an average rate of USD 100 billion a month during the last eight months China’s reserves are at USD 33 trillion Despite world demand falling China’s exports in 2015 declined by only 25 per cent over 2014 And despite bad investments rising debt and loss of confidence among savers the yuan depreciated by only 6 per cent in 2015 In comparison India’s GDP growth in 2015-16 is not likely to exceed 7 per cent India’s exports have declined by 1808 per cent during April-December 2015 over the same period last year there will be a current account deficit of about USD 30 billion and the rupee has depreciated by 9 per cent during April 2015 to January 2016 The stock market indices are back to the levels they were in May 2014 Job creation has practically collapsed Empty boast There is no reason to boast that India is “doing better than China” or that “India is the fastest growing large economy” India’s economy must transit from consumption-driven to investment-driven and from services-led to manufacturing-led We will also experience pain Competition among countries is different from competition among companies It is not a zero sum game where the pain of one country will be the gain of another If China’s demand falls it will import less from India If commodity prices do not recover China will continue to dump its products in India and Indian producers will suffer If the yuan’s volatility roils world currency markets the rupee will also be hit It is believed that the RBI may have spent USD 36 billion in the first two weeks of January to arrest the depreciation of the rupee So in the short run China’s woes may cause us more pain not less Last September it was reported that the Prime Minister had called a meeting of industry leaders to discuss whether and how India could take advantage of the situation where the Chinese economy appeared to be in trouble Some advisers are reported to have presented the situation as an “opportunity” for India Even now there are some commentators who believe that India can take “advantage” of the situation Such advice is not only misplaced but could lead to misjudgments and wrong prescriptions for the problems that the country is likely to face The transition The Prime Minister must indeed initiate a dialogue The conversation should be about the real issues: the exchange rate and how India should deal with the probability of some depreciation; the travails of Indian producers and how the government can help them in the near term; how to arrest and then reverse the decline in exports; and how to enthuse Indian investors to make investments in the real economy (especially in manufacturing industries) when the reality is that many current projects are either stalled or have been scrapped Above all the Prime Minister must begin a conversation on how to initiate and manage the transition of India’s economy that I referred to earlier China is not India’s sibling nor is China India’s nemesis It is a country that has recognised the imperative and the difficulties of transiting to a market economy and is struggling to find the right mix of policies India is in the same situation Website: pchidambaramin Twitter: @Pchidambaram_IN For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Express News
