The author reflects on trends and happenings in the Indian chemical industry. The author asserts that progress in the chemical industry could be achieved by strengthening the manufacturing sector and manufacturing base. He notes the weakness of the country's technology base for medium and large scale projects as it still remains dependent on multinational companies when it comes to technology and engineering needs and support. He argues the need for the government to consider the lack of growth of the manufacturing activities of the industry.
