Book Description

The COVID-19 pandemic brought about significant changes in the world order. It not only reshaped the global geopolitical architecture, but also created newer challenges and opportunities for international trade and businesses. This book deliberates on these new global realities through a multidisciplinary perspective. It delves into various key issues pertaining to finance, infrastructure, policy, geostrategy, and entrepreneurship in the Indian context. The volume discusses themes such as geostrategic shifts and their impact on the Indo-Pacific region, the effects of COVID-19 on international and economic security, India-China bilateral ties, FDI spill over on domestic firms, entrepreneurship education in India, and the Thai Canal project.


Rich in insights on various geo-economic perspectives that continue to shape the global business environment, the book will be useful for students and scholars of sociology, business management, business economics, international trade, geopolitics, international relations, political sociology, and political studies. It will serve as a useful reference for academics, researchers, think tanks, industry professionals, and policymakers.
