JULY 2021


Twenty-three op-ed articles, two events and a new Director at helm are some of the highlights of June 2021.

Drawing on their research work, our faculty members wrote in various national newspapers on a wide range of topics, from a report card on the current administration to the winners and losers from COVID-19, the role of multilateralism and the rise of G-20.

ICRIER organised an event to explore how India can build a globally competitive Electric Vehicle (EV) manufacturing sector by strengthening the eco-system around trade, investment, and battery waste management. ICRIER also hosted the ICANN71 Pre-Meeting briefing and a read-out session.

Deepak Mishra took charge as the new Director and Chief Executive of ICRIER on July 1.
