Abstract

This article explores the impact of trade policy reforms on total factor productivity (TFP) growth in the Indian manufacturing sectors. For a range of measures of TFP growth, it explores the pre- and post-trade liberalisation performance at the two-digit manufacturing industry level. The results indicate an increase in TFP growth on average and for the majority of manufacturing industries in the post-trade reform period.
