In the history of global economic growth and development, the year 2008 had set the pace of recession and almost all countries of the world and enterprises were struggling to come out of the grips of recession. The question of their survival rested on meeting a variety of challenges; grab the new opportunities and formulate various suitable strategies. This had set the beginning of an era, towards the path of global recession to global recovery. The signs of some recovery modes though hazy, were visible during beginning of this decade. However, the journey was full of volatility and the entire period, until now, has indeed been exploring the ways for a sustainable recovery amidst the uncertainties of the transitional phase. Thus, the focus on sustainability under the uncertainties has been the cynosure of all – the policy makers, academicians, research scholars, industrialists or the entrepreneurs.
Although, India was least affected with recession when compared to most of the developed world and presently has been witnessing a reasonably higher growth rate of 7–7.5%, it needs to meet many challenges and encash opportunities when the global economy in general is still moving under uncertainties i.e. experiencing transition from sluggish economy to growing economy. The present scenario thus, has thrown unique opportunities and challenges for the trade, industry, environment and the society as a whole necessitating to come out with a new eco-system and reforms to stimulate country’s growth and development in consistence with the themes of ‘Make in India’, ‘Green India’, ‘Skill India’, ‘Clean India’, ‘Digital India’ vis-à-vis the steps to ease of doing business in India.
