India’s Domestic Economy and World Trade
The Swedish Institute of International Affairs (UI), Sweden India Business Council (SIBC) and Business Sweden have the pleasure of inviting you to a seminar with Piyush Goyal, Minister for Railways and Commerce, Government of India.
India has experienced a long period of high economic growth. Its economy is about to become the world’s fifth largest. Poverty figures have been considerably reduced. By deregulating its economy India has been integrated in global trade and has strongly contributed to Asia’s rise. At the same time there are growing insecurities in the global trading system. India is witnessing an economic slowdown, increasing unemployment and challenges in attracting FDI. Observers call for reforms in the banking sector, for investments in infrastructure and education. Given the domestic and international economic situation, which economic reforms will the Indian government prioritize? What are its views on future economic competition and trade arrangements in Asia? And what prospects are there to reduce emissions and start a transition into a green economy?
