The introduction of liberal reforms has been a slow process of debate and negotiation beginning from the early 1980s. The economic benefi ts of liberalisation were experienced after 2003 and yet, 1991 is popularly perceived as the year of liberalisation. This article charts the changing public discourse around reforms in national English-language newspapers and argues that they played a key role in popularising liberalisation for the elites.
