What we do

Promoting economic development through high quality innovative research, policy advice and communications in areas relevant to contemporary policy debates.

Port of Colombo
Amid geopolitical tensions and slowing growth in major advanced economies, India emerges as a bright spot for global growth and supply chain expansion. Neighbouring Bangladesh and Sri Lanka may also hold supply chain potential. By encouraging regional FDI from Indian businesses and improving South Asia’s trade architecture of FTAs and regional institutions, India can foster inclusive growth to its neighbours.
