India and the Knowledge Economy


The Skills and Innovation Policy (SIP) program's interactions with top Indian policymakers interested in knowledge economy issues date back to 2001 when it organized a very successful high level forum for policymakers and representatives of the private sector and civil society from Brazil, China and India. A comprehensive report on India and the Knowledge Economy: Leveraging Strengths and Opportunities followed in 2005. The program is currently working with the World Bank’s India country team on issues of enhancing the environment for innovation and fostering Diaspora networks.
