India’s economy is now growing faster than China’s, but inequality lingers, bureaucracy stifles, and 30% of the population is still unable to read or write. A look at the challenges facing Prime Minister Modi’s economic reform program.
Asia and the US are the most dynamic and innovative regions in the world, and their combined talent, capital and entrepreneurial spirit will jointly shape the global economy in the 21st century. By 2030 Asia will have tripled its middle class population to some 3 billion people – and by 2050 more than 50% of world GDP will be generated in Asia, up from one third today. This exponential rate of change also brings challenges – economic, social, political, military, cultural and environmental. The Future of Asia Conference will have keynote speakers and panel discussions addressing opportunities and answering questions about this rapidly-transforming continent of 4.4 billion people – and how it will relate to California and the US.
