Ideas for India panel discussion on financing development in India

When: 6:30 – 8:00pm, Monday, 9 September

Where: Desire Hall, Le Méridien Hotel New Delhi

One of the key challenges facing the growth process in India is to find an effective way to finance investment. Banks, especially the public sector banks, are stressed and so are the non-banking financial companies (NBFCs). Due to rural distress, farmers have been demanding loan waivers or other direct transfers. Government is constrained in significantly raising the revenue. The corporate bond market is yet to be fully developed. Public-private partnerships undertaken for infrastructural development have added to the stress of public sector banks due to stalled projects. What is the way forward for the financial sector? Is ‘external borrowing’ as envisaged in the Finance Minister’s budget speech an option?

To stimulate thought on these important questions, ‘Ideas for India’ is hosting a panel discussion on Monday, September 9, 2019 at Desire Hall, Le Méridien Hotel, New Delhi at 6:30pm. The discussion will be moderated by Dr Pronab Sen (IGC India).

High tea will be served from 5.30pm.
