CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 16, 2007) - The growth in India's information technology and manufacturing sectors combined with its technologically skilled and highly educated workforce has strengthened its economy.

He has written extensively on economic issues in key periodicals in North America, Latin America, Europe, Japan, and in South East Asia.
