Ok, lets set aside the prices they will offer (its still not even decided if they will be cheaper or expensive ) , logistical improvements , safeguarding or removal of the middlemen, selling outdated products.......etc etc.
The bigger question.....and also the diff between doing business in AUH and India........is the Raw Material.
The total production of fruits and vegetables in the world is around 370 MT.
India ranks first in the world with an annual output of 32 MT fruits, about 8% of the world’s fruit production...........also is the second largest producer of vegetables (ranks next to China) and accounts for about 15% of the world’s production of vegetables.
Also, the diverse agro-climatic zones in the country make it possible to grow almost all varieties of fresh fruits and vegetables in India. Still we get more expensive fruits in India than UAE.....which doesnt produce anything .
Wall Mart is a 400 billion dollar company........enough to buy out whole of vegetation including fruits vegetables pulses. which india produces every year.
Our interest is investment from Walmart...........and as I questioned somewhere in the same thread before.........where does these investments go ???
It goes into the Raw material...!!!
Now, what is the harm if the invest in raw material ??
It simply ruins the current arrangemnt of how we export and how we import.......!!!!
There has been a commission report in Chennai by some Mr Ramakrishna (??) dont knw the name..........to alter the Sugar policy.
Sugar units tillnow have been directed to keep 10% of production at a price much lower than the market......they also chekc out and decide how much sugar can be exported by each sugar producing unit.
All this is going to be scrapped. This will hit the prices directly. Not only on Sugar , but other commodities as well. For example, Rice...which cannot be exported for less than 1000 dollars a ton.
All these actions from the govt suggests..........common shud be ready to shell out more.............inspite of the fact ...........that we produce one of the best in quality and one of the largest in quantity...!!!!
