The Indian economy is the second fastest growing economy in the world today, with a growth rate of 7%-8%, behind only China. In the worst quarter of the last two crisis years, immediately after the Lehman collapse, India's GDP growth was 5.8 per cent. Global belief in India’s economy has resulted in continuing Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). In 2008 – 2009 the FDI was $27.3 billion in spite of a meltdown in the global financial markets. FDI to India increased by an impressive 56% in July 2009 to $3.5 billion as against $2.6 billion in the same month last year.
