Big bets: Where should India's big bets (in the manufacturing sector) be in the next 10 years?
In the interest of broad-based economic development and poverty reduction, India needs to rapidly grow its manufacturing sector in order to create 90-145 million new jobs by 2030. The urgency of this need is heightened by technological trends (e.g., increasing rates of automation), a closing window of opportunity to capture the low-skills manufacturing base that is currently exiting China, and geopolitics (e.g., the need to quickly strengthen our economy in the face of growing external threats). In order to contribute towards current policy-making momentum in India, this panel of leaders and experts will discuss key constraints and responsive policies needed for high-potential manufacturing sectors.
