Indian Economy Symposium (IES) is a nationwide symposium series which will bring together young people aged 18-35 to voice and discuss issues faced by the Indian Economy.

There are conflicting reports about the state of Indian Economy by various government agencies, rating agencies, think-tanks and media. 

We wish to bring hard facts to forefront, separate them from noise and draw attention of young people to issues which really matter but don’t find mention or adequate coverage by mainstream media.

The inaugural edition of the symposium was held at Jawahar Bhawan, New Delhi on 22nd December, 2019 and was attended by 250 delegates.

The initiative will be now expanded to other Metros, State Capitals and Cities.
