India is emerging as a significant player in the international landscape, and this is as much due to its economic liberalization policies as the turn of geo-political developments. But recent events in India, such as the fall of three governments in the last two years, dramatic growth of coalition politics, nuclear tests, and the Kargil war between India and Pakistan, have however all caused concern and disquiet among both foreign governments and international investors. Many MNCs have been unable, or unwilling, to advance their country business plans in an environment of political uncertainty, bureaucratic hurdles, conflicting signals on economic policy and rapid social change.

International investors, bankers and diplomats need clear direction to understand the future course and impact of the complex maze of changes currently underway in India. Senior international decision-makers want clarity on future scenarios, opportunities and risks in India. For instance:

How long this will the current BJP-led regime last ?
What happens after Vajpayee ?
Is the government serious when it talks about introducing the "second phase of reforms" ?
What are the problems and likely scenarios in India's troubled Power sector ?
Are business costs and Indian currency going to stay stable in the near future ?
Is the Internet hype in India real ?  How will it affect MNCs ?
How is Indian bureaucracy reacting to reforms, and what role will it play in future ?
Is the Indian media objective and fair ? 
What are the implications for international investors on India's changing diplomatic equation with major powers ?
Are Indian industry chambers a help or hindrance to MNCs ?
Will social and political unrest by the RSS increase next year if the BJP loses local elections in Uttar Pradesh ?
