About the event:
India is "rising" and "shining" — but is it doing so as quickly or as brightly as it should? There is mounting frustration, in India and overseas, that the burst of economic liberalization of the 1990s and the rapid growth in the first decade of this century have given way to deadlock and complacency. But over the next decade, India has an opportunity to show the rest of the developing world how open, democratic societies can achieve growth and prosperity. What is India's true potential? And what can be done to unlock it?
McKinsey's Reimagining India: Unlocking the Potential of Asia's Next Superpower, is a seminal new book with an all-star cast of contributors, including CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, Mukesh Ambani, Bill Gates, Eric Schmidt, Muhtar Kent, former Asia Society president Vishakha N. Desai, and others. The book and this panel event will offer an inside-out and outside-in perspective on how an alternative emerging market economic model like India's — a culturally and geographically complex, and politically colorful society — can achieve high growth, economic stability, shared prosperity, and environmental sustainability.
