Difficile d’obtenir un marché en Inde en occultant le lobbying. Si l’analyse préalable requiert la même méthodologie qu’ailleurs, son interprétation et le modus operandi sont radicalement différents. Adapter le lobbying à la complexité des réseaux et aux singularités paradoxales du Subcontinent, tel est l’enjeu qui ne doit échapper à aucune de nos entreprises du CAC aux PME.

The Indian retail market is dominated by the highly decentralized unorganized sector. The small retail outlets, most of them family-owned businesses, account for about 95 per cent of the sales. The creaky, old distribution system that India has lived with is grossly inefficient. The Indian farmer typically gets only a third of what the final consumer pays, instead of the two-thirds that his counterparts do in countries that have organized retailing. India is the second largest producer of fruits and vegetables in the world, but almost 30 per cent of these go waste for want of storage and processing facilities. It is generally agreed that the bulk of the Indian economy would gain, significantly, from the emergence of a well-capitalized retail industry. The organized retail industry is one of the sunrise sectors with huge growth potential.

The EU leaders also stressed the ability of the ESM to recapitalize banks directly and agreed to provide a “definition of legacy assets”. [click to continue...]

The reasons why there are Basel III, the Dodd-Frank Act, and debate over separation of commercial and investment banking in Europe is because previous regulations were not effective in dealing with the financial crisis. The rules of Basel III were adopted by global banking regulators in September 2010 and subsequently endorsed by the Group of 20 leading Economies.
Basel III is an international agreement, but implementation is left to the discretion of regulators in each nation. While Obama said in his campaign that he would urge for a “healthier banking system”, the US said it would not meet the January 2013 target date for introducing the rules. [click to continue...]

The French Government wants to see high-frequency trading activities and speculation in agricultural commodities derivatives separated into strictly-regulated subsidiaries.
Unlike the Liikanen plan, it seems as though the French reform will not be targeting market-making activities.
