Expert Shares Secrets for Business Success in India – World’s 2nd Fastest Growing Global Economy

Los Angeles, CA (RUSHPRNEWS) JULY 24, 2008- With India’s annual economic growth of nearly 9% quickly approaching that of China’s, western business leaders are increasingly being lured to this land of extraordinary opportunity. But corporate leaders who simply view India as the “new China” are destined for trouble, cautions Los Angeles-based India expert author Gunjan Bagla.


“With great opportunity comes great challenge,” stresses Bagla, author of the highly acclaimed book Doing Business in 21st Century India: How to Profit Today in Tomorrow’s Most Exciting Market (ISBN-10: 0-446-40224-9, 2008, Business Plus division of Hachette Book Group, New York, www.HachetteBookGroupUSA.com, 243 pages). “Significant cultural differences create a unique and demanding business landscape for western companies to overcome,” adds Bagla.

Bagla is founder and principal of Amritt (www.amritt.com) of Los Angeles which serves clients in the United States, Canada, and Western Europe who want to learn the secrets of doing business successfully in India. His book, however, will be just as useful to tourists as it is for the corporate world.

Ron Somers, President of the U.S-India Business Council, says Bagla’s book is “required reading for anyone who wants or has business in India. Take this book with you on the plane, keep it in your briefcase, and consult it often.”

Tata Sons, Ltd. Executive Director, R. Gopalakrishnan calls Doing Business in 21st Century India “A refreshingly simple book on a very complex subject.”

Doing Business in 21st Century India is packed with everything business leaders need to know in order to understand and succeed in this emerging market, including:
