VII. Concluding Comments </p> <ul><li>* Rapid economic growth of East Asia: FDI played an crucial role by creating regional production networks </li></ul> <ul><li>* India has not been successful in attracting FDI </li></ul> <ul><li>+ Problems (Survey by Japan Bank for International Cooperation, 2005) </li></ul> <ul><li># Underdeveloped infrastructure </li></ul> <ul><li># Lack of transparency in rules and regulations </li></ul> <ul><li># Lack of information </li></ul> <ul><li>* For East Asia, to maintain growth momentum, avoid closed regionalism: High-quality FTAs (WTO consistency, broad coverage, simple ROOs, etc) </li></ul>
