India has achieved remarkable progress over the last two decades, a process in which state institutions and reform has had a crucial role. Dr Ahluwalia will reflect on the Indian growth experience to distil his key lessons for growth and development.

Francesco Caselli is Norman Sosnow Professor of Economics at LSE.

The International Growth Centre (@The_IGC ) aims to promote sustainable growth in developing countries by providing demand-led policy advice based on frontier research. Based at LSE and in partnership with Oxford University, the IGC is initiated and funded by DFID.
