It is to be noted that the developing countries are forced to accept the negotiation of the developed countries to get support in turn. At the same time it may also be noted that there exists an inverse relationship between domestic gross enrolment ratio (GER) and outward mobility ratio (OMR) and the other developing countries have resorted to importing education services to supplement their domestic capacity.
