Growth, Development and Sustainability during times of increasing uncertainty took the center stage on March 1 - 2, 2019 at the 2nd International Conference being organized by the FLAME University in association with the WageIndicator Foundation, Netherlands and the Indian Econometric Society.


Dr. Montek Singh Ahluwalia, Former Deputy Chairman, Planning Commission of India delivered the Inaugural Address on “India’s Growth Prospects: Old and New Challenges”, on March 01, 2019. The first day of the conference also featured a Special Talk by Dr. Isher J.

Speaking about the importance of the Conference, Professor Dishan Kamdar, Vice- Chancellor, FLAME University said, “The Indian economy is the fourth largest and one of the fastest growing economies in the world. But even today we continue to face challenges that are all pervasive and are affecting our people in many ways. There is, therefore, an urgent need to improve various development indicators to make the growth process more inclusive and sustainable. I believe that educational institutions like us have the mandate to engage the academia in exploring ways and means to mitigate these challenges”. 


“I would like to thank the Wage Indicator Foundation, Amsterdam, and the Indian Econometric Society for collaborating with the FLAME University in envisioning this aspiration of Growth, Development and Sustainability in an era of uncertainty”, he added.

Over 135 research papers have been scheduled for presentations across 24 technical tracks  in 3 parallel sessions ranging from Health, Education, Macro Perspective, Labour and Livelihood, Growth, Poverty and inequality, Energy and Environmental issues, Finance and Banking,  Marketing & Branding, International Trade & Relations, Artificial Intelligence & IT, and  General Management during the two-day conference.


A Doctorial colloquium for research scholars from different institutions is also being conducted as a pre-conference event on February 28, 2019, to help them to become better researchers and work on research projects of national interest.
