Public Lecture - The Modi Way

On 25 November 2016, the CDES and the Australia India Business Council co-hosted a public lecture given by Mr Dhiraj Nayyar on 'The Modi Way: Transforming India Through a New Policy Paradigm'.

Mr Nayyar is Officer on Special Duty and Head, Economics, Finance & Commerce at NITI Aayog, the premier policy think tank of the Government of India, which replaced the previous Planning Commission. Prior to joining NITI Aayog, he was head of the Think India Foundation and a media commentator. Having also trained as an economist at the Universities of Delhi, Oxford and Cambridge, Mr Nayyar was very well-placed to provide insight into Indian economic, public policy and business issues.

The lecture provided a very good opportunity to hear about current developments in, and prospects for, the Indian economy.
