A SXC-ORF T20 Youth Engagement event is scheduled to be held on Mar 27th, at St. Xavier’s College (Autonomous), Kolkata on the topic – Macroeconomic Policy Coherence, Global Trade and Livelihoods. The event will bring together scholars, graduate and post-graduate students from the Department of Economics at the college and also interested students from other academic disciplines and Universities in the city. The event is designed to acquaint students with the workings of the G20 as well as the reach, impact, and significance of the T20 platform as an ‘Ideas Bank’ of the G20. In addition to macroeconomic concerns, the discussion will also highlight Geopolitics, Geoeconomics and Sustainomics of India's Growth Story and thus encourage the opportunity for a cross-disciplinary conversation on key geoeconomics, geopolitical and developmental aspects of India’s domestic and foreign policy outreach.
