March 2022


The March 2022 issue of the Newsletter provides a quick recap of ICRIER's research and policy engagements during the month of February 2022.

We organised a webinar on the topic, ‘WTO Amidst the Changing Geopolitical Landscape’ in collaboration with the India office of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS). The discussion was well-attended. ICRIER participated in the 16th 5-Institute Budget Seminar 2022, to present a reform and development perspective on the 2022-23 Union Budget. We also released working paper titled, ’Stylized Facts on the Evolution of the Enterprise Size Distribution in India's Manufacturing Sector’.

Apart from the budget-related news circulated in the last Newsletter, our media articles during the last month covered a wide range of topics including the state of the economy, agriculture, international trade, employment, and telecommunications.
