The pandemic lockdowns and disruptions have led to a steep contraction in India’s GDP and distressing losses for workers and firms. The government is grappling with an unenviable trade-off between preserving life and livelihoods. This panel of financial market experts will discuss the implications for India’s growth trajectory as the country navigates an uncharted path to economic recovery.
This webinar series is part of the Modern Indian Studies Initiative at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. As a leading public university and home to the largest Asia Studies Center in the southeastern U.S., Carolina is uniquely positioned to be at the forefront of advancing knowledge of modern India across North Carolina, the United States and beyond. In partnership with leaders from North Carolina’s Indian-American community, UNC has embarked on a bold initiative to transform the model for Indian Studies. We are forging ahead in establishing the country’s leading program in Modern Indian Studies – increasing knowledge and understanding of the India of today, and its rapidly evolving future.
