About the Conference
The trends of global economic growth reflect two contracting stories. If many of the African and some of the Asian economies failed in pulling off the much-desired growth, rise of countries like Japan, Singapore, South Korea, China etc surprised the world. India stays somewhere in between these two extremes. Development is neither universal nor uniform. In the market driven economy, the fruits of development are not distributed evenly leading to imbalanced society. The persistent economic crisis in different parts of the world has made economists to wonder whether the practicing economic growth models are potential enough to generate sustainability in growth. Economists and policy makers also ponder the question of how large is the size of trade-off between economic growth and sustainable development. Thus, the major and immediate challenge of the current century is to generate growth which is inclusive and sustainable. In order to create a better and sustainable future, Governments, Corporates and NGOs need to work collectively and playing their respective roles most effectively. In this backdrop, to provide a stimulating platform for academicians and practitioners to reflect, deliberate, and suggest measures that are needed both at macro and the micro levels to elevate India and other backward economies to higher and sustained growth trajectory, Shri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara Institute for Management Development (SDMIMD) is organizing the international conference on “Economic Growth and Sustainable Development- Emerging Trends” on November 20 & 21, 2020.
Shri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara Institute for Management Development (SDMIMD), a premier Bschool located in Mysore, was established in 1993 with the objective of providing quality management education based on a firm foundation of Indian values and ethics.
SDMIMD is promoted by Shri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara Educational Trust, a much-admired non-profit educational trust that runs over 40 recognized educational institutions in Karnataka, including Engineering, Medical, Dental, Ayurveda and Naturopathy colleges.
