A Discussion on Bi-partisan Growth Compact
New Delhi, April 30, 2013
CUTS-PARFORE (Parliamentarians Forum on Economic Policy Issues) and FICCI Forum of Parliamentarians jointly organised a roundtable with Parliamentarians on a Bi-partisan Growth Compact, Tuesday, April 30, 2013 at FICCI, New Delhi.
While PARFORE, an initiative of CUTS International, was conceived as a non-partisan and informal forum where MPs are able to air their views on a periodic basis on core economic issues in the field of trade, competition, regulatory reforms, investment and their cross linkages. FICCIForum of Parliamentarians is a multiparty body of twelve forums with MPs belonging to various political parties of India with many of its members serving on important parliamentary committees.
The objective of the mentioned dialogue is to create a bipartisan platform of parliamentarians where issues relating to the growth agenda can be discussed and agreed upon by the whole national polity. The focus of the discussions is on processes rather than content inorder to create a bipartisan platform of MPs, so that they can agree to focus on issues relating to growth, detached from other issues.
