Foreign Trade Review, 2002, vol. 37, issue 1-2, 47-59

Abstract: This paper examines the implications of various agreements of WTO on Indian software industry. It also analyses recent developments in Indian software sector and provides new strategic options for the Industry. The study observes that the WTO agreements like GATT, GATS, TRIPS and IT will have profound implications on the software industry. It suggests that the robust growth of software industry during the last six years lies in many uneven patterns. Hence Indian companies need to supply patented software, provide high value solutions, expand their product portfolio to new destinations, and build Indian multinationals to negate the impact ofg lobal downturn and to reap the benefits of globalisation promoted by WTO.
