The Indian economy stands at a critical juncture. With advanced economies experiencing a slowdown, India has emerged as an economy with many possibilities. However, the nation faces its own set of challenges. The rapid integration of new digital technologies is reshaping the economic landscape and transforming the nature of work, while societal divisions are becoming more pronounced. In this pivotal moment, India’s decisions will be significant in terms of economic, political, and social aspects.
 
Forbes will address the topic: “The National Innovation System: An Agenda for Change.”
 
This lecture is a part of the “INDIA Conference 2023: India’s Economy in a Changing Global Landscape”, which will bring several distinguished economists, policymakers, and corporate leaders to Cornell’s campus to delve into the state of India’s economy and the challenges ahead.
