Event Details

Even though the International Monetary Fund cut its growth outlook for India for this fiscal year, the country is still on track to remain the world’s fastest-growing large economy. The prediction for India’s GDP growth for the year ending March 31, 2016 is 7.3%. However the forecast for the following 12 months is still 7.5%. This figure has not changed since July. “Growth will benefit from recent policy reforms, a consequent pickup in investment, and lower commodity prices,” the IMF said in its latest report on the world’s economic outlook.

The Make in India campaign will boost India’s manufacturing infrastructure and capacity for innovation, poising the country for phenomenal growth. New smart cities and industrial clusters are being developed in several industrial corridors. These smart cities and industrial clusters offer connectivity, new youth-focused programs and institutions dedicated to developing specialized skills. Most importantly, the Make in India program represents an attitudinal shift in how India relates to investors, making it a true business partner and marking a break with the infamous License-Raj system.

Meanwhile Swedish companies are global leaders in many of the areas vital to India’s growth. Sweden also shares many key values with India, such as democracy, respect for diversity and a commitment to protecting the environment. How can Sweden be a partner in India’s journey towards inclusive sustainable growth? Where does Sweden see it itself in its partnership with India 2030? How can we set the agenda with a vision, values and a clear path forward together?

The session is moderated by Adam Roberts, European Business and Finance Correspondent at the Economist.
