From the Paper:

"India's $1.5 billion outsourcing business is the shining start of all industries in the country today, and illustrates how foreign investment, trade, and a more cooperative political climate can increase the performance of an industry within a nation that is otherwise struggling to find economic growth in its core industries. India's two largest core industries apart from outsourcing are agriculture, textiles, chemicals, food processing, steel, transportation equipment, cement, mining, petroleum, and machinery manufacturing (Kumar, Cray, Kumar, Madammohan. 2002, pp. 122 - 145). Along with IT and software, business-process outsourcing is the country's most open sector. In 2002, it attracted 15 percent of total foreign direct investment and accounted for 10 percent of all exports. By 2008, it is expected to attract one-third of all foreign direct investment and to generate $60 billion a year in exports, creating nearly a million new jobs in the process (Survey, Virtual Champions, 2006, et.al.)."
