Samvaad: The Economics Conclave

Theme: Protectionism over Liberalization: Making India Independent

India has introduced protectionist measures in two ways. One, the Indian government has launched the “Atmanirbhar Bharat” policy, which translates to “self-reliant India,” to promote local industry and reach self-sufficiency in the near future.

Second, foreign direct investments in Indian companies from border sharing countries now require prior approval of the Indian government. This requirement is applicable for direct investments, as well as investments which are beneficially held by entities or citizens of neighbouring countries.

In this panel we will discuss the importance for India to strike a balance between protecting national interests and attracting foreign investment and to continue to be a part of the global economy.
