The role of India and China is expanding in the global economy. A whole new array of economic and financial issues are emerging which need to be tackled if the current period of growth is to endure. The issues that need attention are: how to expand the services sector, especially financial services; how to keep pace with the incredible growth of the manufacturing sector; how to ensure the widest possible diffusion of the huge economic gains seen over the last ten years and how to provide the framework for the development of two-fifths of the human race. Economic Reforms in India and China: Emerging issues and Challenges aims at providing the goals, strategies and policies to tackle these issues. It discusses the efforts to address issues like encouraging less successful sectors of the economy that have been complicated by forces of globalization and the ever-changing realities of today's global economy and appraises issues pertaining to economic reforms. The articles explore ways to improve the well-being of the poor, to design effective structures and institutions for poverty reduction and how the reforms, in their economic, political and social dimensions can be used to tackle global developmental issues.

Since 2000, I have been a Professor of Energy and Environment at the Indira Gandhi Institute of Development Research, Mumbai, India. I hold a Ph.D. in Energy Management from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India. Currently, I teach courses on Energy and Environment for the MSc and M.Phil/Ph.D students. Additionally, I have a great interest in the role that policies play in the development of society, an important topic for economists and engineers. I was a naturally curious child fortunate to have an inspiring grandma. Equally fortunately, I had a mentor in Professor Amulya K.N.Reddy at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, who inspired me to focus on issues pertaining to Energy and Environment that affect the society every single day.
