Tourism industry is one of the most profitable industries in many countries (Sinha, 2004). Whenever tourists visit a country, they bring in additional resources to the destination and such resources contribute to the development of the destinations and the country itself. It is therefore no surprise that many countries make tremendous efforts to tap income from the tourism industry (Australian Government, 2004).
Among these countries are India and China. In the recent years, there have been major improvements in the tourism industry of the two countries which have restructured their mode of operation in handling tourists by providing high standards of accommodation and levels of service (Bikyamasr, 2012). This essay looks at recent tourism developments and trends that have been happening in India and China and it further looks at the likely future trend of tourism in these two emerging countries.

In India, the development of the tourism industry has been on the rise in the last four years. At the moment, the industry is largest service industry contributing to about 6.3% of GDP and accounting of 8.78% of total jobs (Sinha, 2004). Though the country has not fully developed its tourism industry, further availability of tourism sites and products and adequate human resources could definitely aid this industry to rise to its full potential.
According to Seth, Bhat & Sushma (2010), in 2008 the tourism industry in India was at its infant stage. At that time the industry accounted for a volume of about 0.4% of the world population, far much below any other country with similar resources. From studies and comparison with other countries, the government realized that it had a lot of potential and as a result urgent measures were taken in order to improve its share in

Emerging Markets

...I. Introduction Emerging markets are nations with social or business activity in the process of rapid growth and industrialization. The economies of China and India are considered to be the largest. According to the Economist many people find the term outdated, but no new term has yet to gain much traction. Emerging market hedge fund capital reached a record new level in the first quarter of 2011 of $121 billion. The seven largest emerging and developing economies by either nominal GDP or GDP (PPP) are China, Brazil, Russia, India, Mexico, Indonesia, and Turkey. Namaste! "India is the cradle of human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grandmother of tradition. Our most valuable and most astrictive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only! " The Indus valley civilization saw its genesis in the holy land now known as India around 2500 BC. The people inhabiting the Indus River valley were thought to be Dravidians, whose descendants later migrated to the south of India. The deterioration of this civilization that developed a culture based on commerce and sustained by agricultural trade can be attributed to ecological changes. The second millennium BC was witness to the migration of the bucolic Aryan tribes from the North West frontier into the sub continent. These tribes gradually merged with their antecedent cultures to give birth to a new milieu. The Aryan tribes soon started......

...  In 1980, Japan’s industrial innovation over took the United States in the global market for the auto making industry. Soon after, very similar modernization was happening in the emerging market. While China and India were previously used for cheap labor or call centers, now they were coming up with new business models for production and distribution. Multinational companies in the west were investing in this market, building their R&D in developing countries, and hoping that economical and educational growth in the emerging market would help them overcome challenges. Businesses also realized that distributing to the billions of middle class people in developing nations is as beneficial as investing in the western upper class population. There was marketing potential in this region of the world, since the population of intellectuals was growing fast and consumers were getting richer and richer every day. The emerging market improved the design of the products by being smart in innovating the production process. The majority of people in China and India were happy with the new economic situation, since they were now able to use their resources, such as raw materials, in the best way possible to improve the economic situation. However, risk and unpredictability is a huge factor when entering this market. Obstacles include, but are not limited to, pollution, government intervention, laws, regulations, piracy and poverty. Dani Rodrik argues that most nations that benefited......
