NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Given recent concerns about how the Chinese economy may be in a bubble and about Beijing's currency controls, many investors have turned to India to satisfy their appetite for emerging market growth.Recently, India's central bank governor. Duvvuri Subbarao, stated that the nation's growth is strengthening from the already hot pace that helped India's benchmark stock index to nearly double in the last year. Fueling that growth are increased public spending, demand for autos and infrastructure, and industrial production. Another factor helping growth is a recent increase in business investment. IPOs and debt issues are coming back to life in numerous sectors including technology and luxury goods like diamonds. These trends are expected to continue. India has an abundance of intelligent young workers with rising incomes. This should help drive demand for goods and services, which should further stimulate the nation's economy. Another positive factor is the importance that President Obama is placing on building a long-lasting relationship with India. The U.S. is India's largest trading partner, and a healthy relationship between the two nations will benefit India. Factors such as capital flows, increases in domestic demand, portfolio flows, a strong savings rate and strong trade alliances put India in a good position to continue moving forward. In fact, some economists anticipate India's GDP will grow nearly 8% for the year, a faster rate than previously expected. Investors can gain exposure to this dynamic economy with the following exchange-traded products: The iPath MSCI India Index ETN ( INP), which is structured as a senior subordinated debt instrument.
