Union Finance Minister, Shri Pranab Mukherjee will inaugurate a two-day International Conference on “Economic Policies for Inclusive Development” tomorrow. The Conference is being jointly organized by the Department of Economic Affairs, Ministry of Finance and National Institute of Public Finance and Policy. It will be open to all those interested in economic policy and innovations in the policy space.
Economies which have been in the frontline of industrialization and growth in the world have not got there because of the resources they have under the ground but because of human capital, innovation and the nurturing of new ideas. To encourage this sector of innovation in India, the Ministry of Finance has taken an initiative for the First time to organize any such Open Conference. The Finance Ministry is assembling leading authorities from academia, government and corporations for a lively two days exchange of their knowledge and experiences in field of economic policies and innovations in the policy space.
The inaugural address will be followed by a plenary lecture by Professor Michael Spence, Nobel Laureate and Chairman of the Growth Commission.
