26 August 2019: Seminar on 'Where is India's Growth Happening? Tales of Cities, Small Towns and Villages'

Ejaz Syed Ghani
The World Bank

Organised by
Centre for Policy Research (CPR)

The Indian Growth Story, it's causes and reasons, prompts a spur of questions - Is India one of the fastest urbanising countries in the world? Has it kept pace with its youth bulge and job creation? Are industries de-urbanising? What has constrained growth of secondary cities and small towns and districts? Is India’s spatial development lopsided? Will inclusive spatial development solve rural distress?

This seminar will attempt to address these questions based on evidence gathered from millions of enterprises in 550 districts in India over the last two decades and also show how urbanisation can scale up entrepreneurship and job creation.

Date: August 26, 2019
Time: 12:00 P.M.
