India’s latest budget has generated huge interest in its ability to set the country on a path of sustained and rapid growth. Will budget efforts to reorient India’s public finances create sufficient momentum for new investment and broad-based growth? Are there other game changers in the budget that will lay the foundations for better economic governance and create momentum for the future?

Ajay Chhibber addressed these issues in the context of recent economic trends in India. Carnegie's Ashley J. Tellis moderated.

The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is grateful for the support of the Indian Council for Cultural Relations in making this event possible.
