Abstract1
The objective of the paper is to provide a comparative analysis of the Business Environment factors to be taken in to account while starting up a small sized Silk Industry in India (Kancheepuram, Tamil Nadu) as against starting one in China (Guangzhou, Guangdong). There are some factors such as permissible Foreign Direct Investment and Export Policy that are same for all regions in the countries and others such as Labour Laws that are specific to the regions chosen within the countries. The bases of comparison2 are: a.Cost of labour and related factors.

b.Current technology and related factors.
c.Government support and Policies.
d.Credit Policy.
e.Export policy (Duties, Taxes, and Rebates etc.)
f.Foreign Direct Investment (FDI)
As per SWOT analysis, we conclude that India is the preferred choice for setting up the facility. Contents
