INDIA HAS ABUNDANT GROWTH PROSPECTS-Dr. N S Shetty, Former FAO Consultant, UN

“India’s growth potential is enormous. The country needs a suitable model for its growth. Only then we will be able to tackle key challenges that undermine the achievement of the potential growth rate,” said Former FAO consultant Dr. N.S. Shetty.

He was speaking on ‘Indian Economy- Emerging Issues’ , as a part of the Guest Lecture series organised by ‘FINBYTES’, the finance forum of MBA department of Alva’s Institute of Engineering and Technology, at AIET Seminar Hall, Mijar on 17th October 2016.

Dr Shetty said, “The growth model that we should pursue has also been a subject of great debate amongst the policy makers. Should it be a manufacturing driven, export-led growth, should it be infrastructure led growth or one driven by domestic consumption? The discussion is still going on now.” Lack of investment in infrastructure- both physical and financial and high level of financial exclusion skill gap which has implications for employability are key challenges to growth, said Dr N S Shetty.
