The article focuses on investment opportunities in India. The country is a one-billion person economy with 2004 growth rate of more six percent. It has a lot of potential investors but the government has no effective program in place for improving basic education and infrastructure which could hinder its future growth. India will need to make good on promises to improve infrastructure and limit bureaucracy to further entice foreign investment.
