India's Economic Reforms and Implications for Australia

India - AU

Narendra Modi’s federal government continues to drive a program of radical economic reforms during its current second term of government.

From agriculture liberalization and labour market reforms to state-sector privatization, reforms underway have implications that extend outward to India’s trading partners. Australia-India bilateral relations have recently gained new momentum both in the context of India’s economic reforms and in response to regional geopolitical tensions.

This webinar focussed on critically assessing the progress of Modi’s economic reforms, followed by analysis from Indian and Australian peak industry and business bodies on the opportunities these reforms hold for the bilateral trade relationship.
