The author reflects on the declining investment in the manufacturing sector of the chemical industry in India. He remarks that such condition is due to lack of support from the Indian government and financial institutions to small and medium sector, which had then brought steady growth in Indian chemical industries. The author claims that small scale manufacturing industries should not be regarded as irrelevant in the globalization of industries as they promote greater participation of investors.
