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.
