“Brazil, Russia, India and China (BRIC) nations showed a pattern of growth while all other countries were facing economic crunch and slowdown consequent to the global meltdown. That is because India after China has been the most sought after country for foreign investments,” he said.

Pugazhenthy, who is also the executive director of India Lead Zinc Development Association (ILZDA), in his presidential remarks at a national seminar on ‘Non-Ferrous Metals and Global Meltdown-India’s Strategies´ here, said, “Many Indian non-ferrous companies too have started investing and acquiring mines in countries like UK, USA and Australia.”

Earlier, in his inaugural address IIM’s former president and former CMD of Nalco, P Parvathisem said India was “least affected” from the current global downturn.

“It is mainly because of various regulatory and control mechanisms that we have and by nature being conservative in our approach,” he said adding on the other hand there was absence of such a regulatory authority in other countries.
