Jaitley to address business school in Sydney

Sydney, March 24 (IANS) Finance Minister Arun Jaitley would be speaking on ‘Reimaging the Indian Economy’ at the Sydney campus of the internationally-ranked S P Jain School of Global Management during his official visit to Australia starting March 29.

John Lodewijks, economics professor at the School, said that India was the “bright economic star” in an otherwise gloomy global economic environment and that the series of initiatives and programmes announced by the Indian government, ranging from Make in India to Digital India to Smart Cities and Skilling India, had the potential of positively impacting the developmental challenges India faces and in opening up opportunities for foreign investment.

School president Nitish Jain said that the minister’s visit would enable him to see the world-class facilities of the School and its unique pedagogy, which lie at the heart of its USP. “For a school that started in 2004 with a campus in Dubai and now present in Singapore, Sydney and Mumbai, it is an achievement to be ranked alongside the best in the world,” he said.

“Minister Jaitley’s visit to Australia would be a significant milestone in bilateral relations and it was an honour for the Sydney campus to be the venue for the first speaking engagement of the minister during his forthcoming visit,’ he added.

Welcoming the opportunity to host the Indian minister, Dr Susan Loomes, head of the Sydney campus, said the students and faculty were hugely excited to welcome him.
