Sustaining Economic Growth in India

Recorded on March 6, 2008

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

Since economic reforms were started over fifteen years ago, India's economic growth rate has been impressive - averaging 8.5 percent in recent years. Achieving rapid and sustained economic growth has played a critical role in improving the living standards for many of India's poorest; however, a vast number of people continue to be untouched by the visible changes that have taken place in the Indian economy. Dr. Rajiv Kumar, Director and Chief Executive of the Indian Council for Research on International Economic Relations (ICRIER), a New Delhi based economic policy think tank, will provide his thoughts on the important topic of sustainable growth and economic reform in India.
