 FICCI Multilaterals, International Policy & Strategy

The Multilateral Division of FICCI works to strengthen economic relations and build new connects by leveraging the synergy of regional and multilateral groupings. This is done at B2B and track 1.5 formats. Economic conferences and programmes have substantive backing from continuous intellectual effort and industry focused research through industry committees, working groups and special Task Forces.

At the Multilateral level, FICCI holds the Business Secretariat for BRICS, Indian Ocean Rim Association (IORA), Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO), ASEAN India Business Council (AIBC). FICCI is also one of the Founding Organisations for SAARC Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Boao Forum, CACCI. In addition, FICCI has spearheaded several initiatives in other key areas in alignment with India’s Foreign Policy objectives such as BIMSTEC and Blue Economy.

The objective of Multilateral Division is also to expand the outreach of FICCI by collaborating with multilateral and bilateral agencies in a focused way and by creating joint engagements in line with the identified priorities of the partner institutions. The division is the first point of contact for multilateral and bilateral agencies interested to work with different divisions of FICCI as well as for connecting various in-house verticals with global and regional institutions. Some of our partner institutions include ADB, World Bank, IMF, UNDP, KAF, FES, FNST and GIZ. The Division also contributes to evolving private sector’s perspective on global and regional public policy and economic issues. The Division also works as the central team in FICCI's International Department and supports coordination of key engagements including the work of FICCI's International Council.

Vision, Mission and Objectives of the Division
  • Study India’s present multilateral engagement and economic diplomacy and chart the future course in the medium and long run through industry focused initiatives
  • Design a comprehensive and pragmatic vision for India’s multilateral engagement and economic diplomacy
  • Engage FICCI members through various multilateral platforms for business expansion and networking, identify and promote growing business opportunities in multilateral groupings and understand concerns and critical issues that impact business decision making
  • Identify policy gaps and enablers to facilitate deeper sub-regional, regional and mega-regional engagements

Multilateral Development Banks Assisted Projects

There has been a steady increase in the overseas investments made by Indian companies in the past few years. According to the data released by the Reserve Bank of India RBI, outward FDI from India has gone up sharply from US$ 17.9 billion in FY10 to US$ 36.9 billion in FY14. With this growth, Indian corporations have expanded their global footprint significantly and are increasingly looking out to further enhance their overseas presence. However, it is disappointing to note that while Indian companies are investing abroad for a variety of reasons, the share of Indian firms in global International Competitive Biddings ICBs in projects assisted by Multilateral Development Banks MDBs outside India remains very low.

While DEA would be acting as the nodal agency to implement this strategy, stakeholders have also been assigned some action points taking their area of expertise into consideration. Some of these action points also call for support and collaborative work from Industry Associations as well. FICCI as an industry body has been actively extending its support towards this endeavour. A number of initiatives around the 7-pillar strategy of the government have been taken by FICCI in the past few months:

Africa - India Partnership Day organised by FICCI on May 22, 2014
Stakeholders Consultative Roundtable on AfDB’s Procurement Policies & Procedures organized by FICCI on March 14, 2014

To address the issue of information asymmetry, FICCI has prepared a comprehensive ‘User’s Guide’ for circulation among its members. The manual has been developed with a view to provide thorough information on the procurement procedures/rules followed by the MDBs including ADB, AfDB and World Bank, and the international competitive bidding processes followed by these Banks. The Manual contains useful source file links which provide easy access to relevant materials and procurement notices published by the MDBs. 

FICCI has also strengthened its web based dissemination framework by posting dedicated links on its site for sharing information on MDB projects with its member. FICCI would also be sharing any other information which would be made available to the organisation by the office of the utive Directors / Indian Missions through its website, which would serve as advance information to firms, helping them actively participate in ICBs for MDB assisted projects outside India.

Should any of these opportunities World Bank / ADB, prima facie, be of interest, please register your interest with GPCL to help ensure that additional data on the projects that may be accessed are shared with you.
