Conference of Chief Economists - Emerging Macroeconomic Challenges

Learning Event, Business Strategy
Thursday, July 27, 2023
Crystal Room, Hotel Taj Mahal Tower, Apollo Bunder, Mumbai
Chief Economists and their Senior Team Members of Banks, Financial Institutions and NBFCs


In recent years, most economies have faced increasing uncertainties in the macroeconomic landscape. While policy normalization is far from complete, resolute actions by policy makers have contained financial stability concerns to a great extent. Globally, the pace of monetary tightening has slowed in recent months, but uncertainty remains on its future trajectory as inflation continues to rule above targets. Divergence in economic prospects across countries continues, adding to the complexities. While the Indian economy has been resilient, maintaining financial and external sector stability, challenges arising due to geopolitical turbulence, climate and transition risks, rise of platform economies, global competition, and reviving capex continue to be a concern even though we are poised to witness significant growth.


This Conference will provide Chief Economists and their team members opportunities to discuss the state of the Indian Economy and review global macroeconomic developments. The economic and business opportunities of extending banking access and the requisite strategies, implications of platform economies, and risks posed by geopolitical developments will be discussed apart from the challenges faced by the financial sector in facilitating a cleaner and a greener growth story. 

Conference Highlights:

Following issues/topics would be discussed:

  • Emerging role of India in the Global Economic Order – Prospects and Challenges
