The phenomenon of globalization has led to redefine various paradigm of development and economic development in particular. Globalization has been perceived as a process of structural change and integration of trade and financial system. The various aspects or dimensions of development have undergone changes due to introduction of economic reforms.

Growing emergence of international trade agreements, financial integration and international mobility of factors have accelerated the pace of change.
