The Indian Economy 2023: Innovation, Competitiveness and Social Progress

2-day Conference: Thursday, February 23 & Friday, February 24, 2023


The Indian economic and social landscape has experienced crucial transformations in the last decade. The reforms and developmental initiatives in this period aimed at enhancing innovation, competitiveness, and efficiency in the Indian economy. Government policies across health, education, housing, and energy emphasized on sharing prosperity amongst all groups, ensuing equitable regional development and social progress. Despite several external uncertainties, India charted a resilient roadmap for its growth and development through focused policy implementation. To take stock of the transformations in the Indian economy and the social progress achieved in recent years, we are inviting world-leading experts and intellectuals in economics, business, policy-making, and social development to provide their up-to-date perspectives into the state of the India economy in 2023 and into the outlook and challenges for its continued progress.

Sessions include keynote talks, panel discussions, and fireside chats on topics such as the impact of government policies, district and regional economic and social progress, labor force transformation, education and healthcare reform, water governance, entrepreneurial innovation, and international engagement with Silicon Valley / the U.S.
