I am experiencing great pleasure in presenting this report. I am happy to present my experiences and learning as a team member. Being the group co-ordinate I got various effective points and ideas to the suggestions and organization of the group members. As it is understood, whenever we do something new, we have to face the challenges and problem to make that project a success. Now when I have completed this project successfully, I feel proud to look over all the new experiences and knowledge, I achieved. I had to undergo a lot of problem which I have discussed in this reflection report. Doing this project I learnt various methods, procedures and various governmental functions mainly carried on for the betterment of country's economy. My report consists of my experiences and difficulties faced in this topic and efforts taken for complete understanding of the topic. I will also focus on drawbacks and will look for key points so that I can do much better in my future projects. This report will be divided into main headings wherein I will share my good and bad experiences. This reflection report is divided into following headings-
Recollection of experiences.
Personal feeling and learning from experience
Group dynamics & learning from experiences.
Lesions for future projects.
1. Recollection of experiences.
In the beginning of the project I collected some main key points by group discussion. I tried to collect all the relevant information regarding this project work from every means which were approachable for me. I also took ideas from tutors so that I can formulate first part of the project. I also took help from books, journals, news papers and internet. After that I made certain key point for better understanding of the topic. There were few topics which I was not able to understand well. So again I referred some books and internet to clear my doubts. I made it a point that whatever information I collect is up to mark, purposeful and useful for any country who wishes to sign this agreement. This all work purely has my toughest experiences in getting out the correct idea and recommendations formed for the level of the subject that I truly understand. I have mentioned some of the most important trade agreements that are a beneficial factor for India and the country signing this agreement because I believe in providing information that is updated up to date rather than providing outdated information that is not useful to anyone. I gained experience on reading on such recent trade agreements and explaining it to my group members and taking their suggestions in what they really think and agree respectively to the importance for the subject. This topic that was given to me was already well known to me because I had already gained various experiences in this subject because I have been learning various merits and demerits of exports and their effects on the economy. I particularly choose India as my main area for the export led promotion because I had lots of key information and research materials and presentations on exports of India. The only problem I identified in getting my work done was regarding promotional schemes in India this was because I could not find out source of information on the web or in books to the extent that I expected to find out. I collected various key and most important schemes and promotional exporting methods from various sources and then collected them and put them to different sub heading so that it would be related and easy to compile and understand. I gained experience on reading on such recent trade agreements and explaining it to my group members and taking their suggestions in what they really think and agree respectively to the importance for the subject. As I have been learning various merits and demerits of exports and their effects on the economy so I was pretty conformable doing this project getting the information regarding Promotional scheme in India was not easy. I faced difficulty in finding through information regarding Promotional schemes. Somehow schemes and promotional exporting methods from various sources and then collected then and few them different sub-headings to make it easy to compile and understand. Then after bringing in things back to normal I quickly took out the main subjects that I don't understand and referred the book or got various web pages which made me understand about the subject clearly and then systematically mentioned it in a such a way that any person who reads it will find it easy to understand. I took into account most important trade agreement that are a beneficial factor for India and another concerned country. I have provided up to date information and leave ignored the out dated one as it is of no use to anyone. I want through recent trade agreements and explained it to the group members. I welcomed suggestions of the group members. As a result I could simplify and analyze the information to present it in my project.
2. Personal feelings and learning from the experience:-
2. Personal feelings and learning from the experience:-
I left no stone unturned to put my efforts to the best of my knowledge on this project. I have put in lot of efforts to display the knowledge on the subject globalization, export growth & export promotion in India is my genuine work and sincere efforts have been put to make it as good as it can be. The work that I have done in totality to display the knowledge on the subject globalization, export growth and export promotion in India is a genuine piece and is of my own original piece of work. From my side I did my work with full dedication. I had completed the project with all the effort and sincerity without coping it from any other source. I tried to collect information regarding this project from all the reliable sources like books, journals and articles. The present work is a tribute to my own ideas and knowledge I gathered from the sources mentioned above. After completing this project I realized the best thing I gained is sense of responsibility and give my work top most priority. I gained confidence of acquiring better skills in this field. I have not copied or pasted from elsewhere but implied my own ideas and knowledge after a complete study on this subject from various books, articles and journals. I have implied my own ideas and knowledge after studying the subject thoroughly from books journals and articles. This project gave me the confidence to do any good project in future. I learnt how to start and how to end the paragraph, formatting of text, contents that can be inputted, type of any language that should be used while creating a project. This project would be a great help during my employment in any organization. Exchanging views and ideas helped in analyzing problems and giving solution to them. On the top of that it gives a clear sense of work responsibility.
Challenges and difficulties in doing something new go side by side like in my case. As far as the problems faced are concerned, there was a slight difficulty in co-ordination with the group. The group members were lazy and were least interested in putting any kind of efforts. There was lack of interaction despite of my efforts to bring everyone together. But when there is a will there is always a way thinking this I never lost courage and hope. My enthusiasm to complete my work never went down.
I went to the faculty members to get help from them. They gave a very good, interactive response to us. They helped us in knowing the subject in an easy manner.
Earlier the group members were showing some interest. But gradually they stopped showing interest. They didn't even bother to call each other regarding the project. They avoided interactive sessions. So I decided to join another group which was working on the same subject. I find no problems with the content or processes because I already had experience of work and knowledge in exports in India so this made it easy for me to grasp new knowledge and imply my beneficial ideas to it. Regarding to my performance I started doing my home work from the first day, this type of performance inspired me to do the work on time and from the starting, this inspiration was given by my dissertation lecturer. I interacted with the group and got a good feedback and gained lots of views and ideas. Initially I did not face much problem as the subject was understandable and easy. I did all work on time to avoid any inconvenience. This helped me in avoiding mistakes. In my group I exchanged ideas and advised each other to make our project good. As I was ready to face any challenge the negative experience of mine, for my previous group members did not kill my courage. Instead, it energized me and I was ready to face any kind of challenge which comes in my way in the future. When I joined another group I kept my expectations low. Even though, I got their support and guidance in completion of my project work. The group discussions we did and ideas we exchanged with each other, helped me to make this project a success. Despite of problems and difficulties my project work was completed very smoothly and on time. So, I could say that my overall experience was good while doing the project.
3. Group dynamics and learning from the experiences:-
With my group members I discussed that what type of information should be inputted. We discussed the best suited sources to start with. Supervisors played a very important role in the completion of this project work. This was because they made me learn how to take the initiative to start my project work. Group member's role was not up to date, though I got to learn from them, how to put our ideas and compile them together to get a more organized method to complete the project. As a result we could make clear headings and sub-headings under which we could easily display our ideas and knowledge. It was equally important to take into consideration the way government of various countries work for the improvement of their export business. So we considered various countries governmental functions that normally take place for the betterment of the export led growth. I do not hesitate to state that my experience with group members was not up to my expectations, although role of supervisors in making this project successful can never be denied. I personally feel supervisors consultations were very use full to our group on whole. I feel the group experience with my group members that I was allotted with was a bitter and a very bad experience. Basically I had no problems with the content and the processes of the project work because I personally feel that the subject was understandable and easy to comply with. Overall, I had no problem in understanding the subject. My experience of work in India helped me to get through the hurdles and I could precede successfully keeping focused on my aim. I find no problems with the content or processes because I already had experience of work and knowledge in exports in India so this made it easy for me to grasp new knowledge and imply my beneficial ideas to it. Here I would also like to state that tutors role in completion of such project should be more enhancing. They should share their experiences and ideas with us. By doing so any confusion regarding work would get eliminated so that we can proceed more focused on our aim. I feel tutors are reservoirs of new and improved ideas, the ones who have the ability to make the work easier and organized. I would recommend the tutors should set a lecture for 1 week after supervisor consultation to give a brief on the subject that we have been allotted and providing us with ideas so that we could display our confusions where the tutors could solve it. And clear interactions would take place. Otherwise it was very difficult for us to know from where to start and how to start which would possibly make us do mistakes.
Now when I have completed my project successfully, I am glad to state that I am even more efficient to do any other project in future. I learnt how to proceed and how to end any project work. I am confident that the experience I gained will help me getting employment in some good company. The experience of this project work has given me confidence to do any project work effectively and it gave me a lesson like from how to start and how to end the paragraph, formatting of text, contents that can be inputted, type of professional language that should be used while creating a project on a particular subject, knowledge and learning were the main criteria from project work, this work related project would help me a lot during my employment in any company, group coordination on gaining or exchanging views and ideas help in knowledge building, this even helps in analyzing problems and giving solution to the problem, and above all gives a clear sense of responsibility of work and unity in all perspective to gain the desired result of success. After discussion we choose one country that we needed to represent its export led growth procedures and export promotion techniques and its role in the field of globalization.
As I had already mentioned the role of supervisors in making this project successful could not be kept inside. These people taught me the basics to proceed in a systematic manner. Wed got to learn how to step further in a project work. The power behind the success of this project was each other's motivation and an example of good team work. Supervisor consultations were very beneficial for us because he/she would provide us with such use full information that was easy for us to understand and to do the project in a correct and systematical manner. We even discussed the subject and its main points that should be taken into consideration with the supervisor he/she advised gave suggestions and hints for us to keep in mind for getting good grades in our project. I chose India as my key target and others chose Japan, China, and USA and so on. As far as the group member's response is concerned, these were a good co-ordination. Everyone took special interest in bringing up useful points. Every one motivated each other. I am really thankful to my group members. Supervisor consultations were taken into consideration to face any kind of difficulty. Useful information that was in a systematic manner was provided to us time to time by our supervisor. We followed supervisor's words and noted down each and every point that had been told to us. Giving of simple and small notes on the hand book about a particular subject is not enough. The students should be given a chance to think based on lecturer's teachings this is where a teacher is called nearer to god or parents such teachers will be loved and respected by students. Giving of simple and small notes on the hand book about a particular subject is not enough. Teachers are bank of knowledge; their valuable guidance helps students to achieve their goal. Teachers help to choose a path that leads us to success. The students should be given a chance to think based on lecturer's teachings this is where a teacher is called nearer to god or parents such teachers will be loved and respected by students.
4. Sessions for future projects:-
Learning has no limit, no time and no boundaries. I realize after completing my project work successfully I achieved abundant knowledge and learnt so many new prospective. My confidence has boosted up although doing this project I realized where I can improve. I have learned how to gather the information and wrote all the key points.

The conclusion of this reflection report is that whatever you do, be responsible and attentive and ready to do any work that comes to you as an opportunity, don't leave it but take it as a challenge and don't be a coward in hiding yourself from the truth of knowledge and its difficulties, this is what I learned from the end of this project experience. I learnt time management, co-operation, targeting, planning, practicality and professionalism. My talent was chiseled by doing this project so at the end I would conclude that my overall experience during this project work was nice.
