02/12/2019 - The latest OECD Economic Survey of India, to be published on Thursday 5 December, takes stock of India’s economic and social progress and discusses the outlook for continued reforms to drive investment and exports, and improve well-being. Special chapters look at the challenges and opportunities of India’s growing participation in the global economy and at how the availability and affordability of housing could be improved.
OECD Chief Economist Laurence Boone will present the Survey to government officials, business representatives, academics and the media in New Delhi alongside Mr K Subramanian, Chief Economic Advisor to the Government of India, and Mr K Rajaraman, Additional Secretary at the Ministry of Finance at 10:00 at the Imperial Hotel (Janpath Lane, New Delhi). Ms Boone will take questions at the end of her presentation, and there will be additional time for media interviews from 11:15.
The Survey launch kicks off a one-day OECD conference on India that includes discussions on promoting trade and investment, responsible business conduct in the gold and garment sectors, and India’s involvement in global governance and regional co-operation. Journalists are also welcome to attend the rest of the conference.
