Reimagining India

India is "rising" and "shining"—but is it doing so as quickly or as brightly as it should? In May 2014, the largest democratic election in history took place in India and was won by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), a victory that signaled the country’s collective desire for reform and growth. What is India’s true potential under the new government and how will they transform India’s society and economy and show the rest of the developing world how open democratic societies can achieve growth and prosperity?

Join us as we explore how an alternative emerging market economic model like India’s—a culturally and geographically complex, and politically colorful society—can achieve high growth, economic stability, shared prosperity, and environmental sustainability. Speakers include contributors to McKinsey’s recently published book, Reimagining India: Unlocking the Potential of Asia's Next Superpower.
