India will be the world’s third largest economy in the next 15 years with a GDP of some US$ 7 trillion. It will also be the provider of a very large, globally mobile work-force. But India also faces major challenges in the next 15 years, with a key one being the absorption of a currently underemployed workforce in agriculture into productive employment in manufacturing and services, and preparing India’s youth for the role they will play as global workers. How Indian policymakers design and implement policies today that will affect these challenges will have a large bearing on India’s role in the global economy of the future.
