IIT Kharagpur organises an international conference

International conference by IIT Kharagpur


One of the renowned IITs of the country, IIT Kharagpur, is all set to organise an international conference on Frontiers of Infrastructure Finance. Sustainable economic growth is one of the principal objectives of the developing world. The major precondition for attaining this goal, however, is the availability of infrastructure in the economy, both in passable quantity and quality. Infrastructure is considered as the wheel, if not the engine of development.

The deficiency of infrastructure will certainly hamper sustainable economic growth. In most of the developing countries including India, the status of infrastructure is low as compared to the need of the respective countries. While the demand for infrastructure is growing at a much faster rate, supply is more or less stagnant. This is mostly due to the rapid urbanisation and globalisation taking place across the world. The major hurdle for closing this demand and supply gap is the non-availability of finance for infrastructure creation. Despite the large number of projects that are either in progress or in the pipeline, India is continuously challenged to cope with an increasing demand for infrastructure services.

Cell for papers:

The objective of this conference is to present a platform for academicians, researchers, engineers, business analysts, financial analysts, statisticians, econometricians, economists, corporates, industry professionals and policy makers to deliberate, debate and work out the strategy for infrastructure financing and its creation.

Authors of all papers accepted for the conference will be required to give
copyright declaration in the format to be supplied later. The selected papers will either be published in a special issue of an Econ Lit- indexed journal or in an edited volume by a reputed publisher.
