Brave Hollanders active in Indian flower E-mail
The Indian government is devoting money in the export of flowers. But the return on that investment is questionable. They are particularly Dutch entrepreneurs of Indian floriculture benefit. The Indian workers are victims: they need to moderate wage and social benefits without dangerous work in the greenhouses provide. One can this state of affairs of course defend the argument of the employment. But is this really just the type of work where the Indians are waiting on? In quantitative terms, the employment performance of the Flowers sector is far from optimal. The sector is highly capital intensive. One hectare requires an investment of one and half million guilders. Per hectare on average work about 50 workers. This means that between 20,000 and 30,000 guilders cost for a worker to work. For Indian concepts is that an extremely expensive job. For the same amount, in other sectors of different people to be helped.
Floriculture in greenhouses in India shows a very profitable business to be. At least for the foreign, most Dutch companies in India plant material, pesticides, technical knowledge and refrigeration sales. Their Indian customers and joint venture partners have to just wait and see how beneficial developments in the sector they will be. Indian businessmen to invest in flowers are highly dependent on their foreign partners. Dutch and Israelis, the technology and the plant material and control the brokering. The contribution of the Indians consists of (cheap) labor and capital. Characteristic of the relations is that the investments for the vast majority (90%) on behalf of the Indians, while it yields the opposite is: it is estimated 90% to foreign partners. Moreover, the risks inherent in the volatile international flower trade poses exclusively for the account of the Indians. On the international market for roses, the main product of India threatens an offer. Already there is a price on. If this crisis continues, threatening the profits of the Indians to disappear as snow for Sunday But the foreigners have their profits through the sale of raw materials and equipment already secured.

In short, for foreign companies, the flowers much cheaper than their Indian partners. Typical is the development of the flower industry in India under way after new loans from the IMF and that the sector is encouraged by the FMO, a development that the Dutch government and Dutch banking accounts. But even if the Indian floriculture a commercial success, the economic benefit to the general population is extremely limited. The investors in the flowers are large agricultural and industrial enterprises. That can not be otherwise: the investment banks for flowers amounts between 1 and 1.5 million guilders per hectare. The foreign currency earned by flowers and generous grants from the Indian government will therefore only the elite law. Regarding employment effects, the performance of the Indian flower industry is far from impressive. The greenhouses work on average 50 workers per hectare. This means that a job will cost 30,000 guilders. For the same money in India a lot more people to be helped. It also appeared that the floriculture not only benefits but also of work, because the ground for the flower greenhouses often acquired by (small) farmers.
