This event has been postponed due to inclement weather. A new date will be set shortly.
Indian Prime Minister Modi’s “Make in India” campaign is a centerpiece of his economic strategy and has caught the attention of Indian and foreign investors. Does Modi’s rise portend an economic revolution in India? Will he pursue an economic agenda that upturns India’s unproductive statism of the last several decades? Is he implementing the reforms necessary to make that happen?
Henny Sender, the Financial Times’ chief international financial correspondent, will assess the progress of the Modi administration’s reforms and gauge their impact on investor sentiment. Her remarks will be based on her recent trip to India, where she conducted wide-ranging interviews with policymakers and members of the business community. Carnegie’s Vikram Nehru will moderate.
Henny Sender joined the Financial Times in 2007 and is currently its chief international finance correspondent. She was previously the Wall Street Journal’s senior special writer for the money & investing section and covered private equity and hedge funds. Sender worked in Hong Kong for nearly ten years and covered regional finance for the Wall Street Journal Asia and the Far Eastern Economic Review.
Vikram Nehru is a senior associate in the Carnegie Asia Program where his research focuses on the economic, political, and strategic issues confronting Southeast Asia.
The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is grateful for the support of the Indian Council for Cultural Relations in making this event possible.
