will probably be a major element of the

Services sector growth
US sectoral contribution
towards GDP
US Services sector
US Service economy
US services sector
• Eight of every 10 U.S. jobs are in the services sector.
Services industries provide more new jobs than the rest
of the U.S. economy combined.

• Over the past two decades, the services sector has created
almost 40 million new jobs across the full range of
services: software engineers, nurses, mortgage
specialists, lawyers, instructors, mutual fund managers,
film and television technicians, insurance agents, tour
operators, and many others.

• The service sector -- including everything from restaurants

and hotels to banks and airlines -- represents about 80
percent of economic activity in the United States.

US-agriculture sector
• Productivity growth was much more important for
agriculture than for the overall economy

• More than 70 percent of growth was caused by additions of

labor, capital, and material inputs.

• Because of the large number of producers and the dispersed

nature of production, public investments have been a
very important source of productivity growth for

• Public agricultural R&D and infrastructure accounted for

75 percent of the growth in agricultural productivity
between 1949 and 1991.
• USA is the leading manufacturer in the world with a 2007
industrial output of US$2,696,880 millions. Main industries
are petroleum, steel, motor vehicles, aerospace,
telecommunications, chemicals, electronics, food processing,
consumer goods, lumber, mining.
• Industrial production slipped by 0.5% in January 2009 despite
stimulus packages declared by the administration to defend
against the impact of worldwide slump.
• IIP grew by 6.2% during the corresponding period a year ago.
• Manufacturing, which declined 0.8%, led the reduction in
industrial production, which was being followed by mining
output, which declined by 0.4%.
• According to official projection, industrial growth is figured at
4.8% for 2008-09.

A comparison among the 3
sectors in US
• The growth of the services sector has benefited most
from favorable changes in relative prices.

• While manufacturing, agriculture, and food

processing have suffered negative terms of trade.

• An increase in the price of manufacturing leads to a

small increase in the supply of agricultural output.

• This result is explained, in part, by agriculture’s

 being a supplier of primary inputs to the
manufacturing sector.

Prospects of India-USA
• There are several areas where economic cooperation between India and the US
can progress further. These include infrastructure, IT, Telecom sector,
energy and other knowledge industries such as pharmaceuticals and

• The Government of India is continuously reviewing its policies to create an

investor friendly environment in sectors such as roads, ports and airports.
Private sector participation in management, BOT projects, green-field
airports, terminals and shipping berths and capacity augmentation has been

• The IT sector is India’s fastest growing sectors with over 50 percent average
annual compounded growth since 1991. Today, nearly two in five of the

Fortune 500 companies outsource their software requirements to India.
• Abundant investment opportunities exist for further strengthening Indo-US
economic ties in the IT sector, especially, in areas like communication
infrastructure, satellite-based communication wireless, IT-enabled
services, and so on
• Defense cooperation between Indian and American armed forces builds
military capacities on both sides for combined operations.

• With about 20 million people entering the middle class, India's growth is in
the domestic market. India is not merely an exporter but a big importer.
India presents a huge market opportunity to other countries.

• India’s energy sector has been an important destination for US investment.

The sector offers for exploitation a vast untapped potential to investors in
hydro electricity, oil & natural gas and coal

• In order to promote bilateral trade and investment in the knowledge- based
industries, the US India Business Council (USIBC), along with FICCI,
has launched a Knowledge Trade Initiative (KTI). KTI aims to solidify
Indo-US leadership in the knowledge economy by harmonizing bilateral
positions on key issues affecting knowledge trade.

• The US investor community is today increasingly sharing confidence in the

future of the Indian economy. The growing synergy between the two
countries in the technology sectors and mutually shared respect for
democracy, rule of law and well established business practices make the
two countries natural business partners.
