Visit of Mr. Anis Chowdhury
Mr. Anis Chowdhury, Former UN-ESCAP Director and Former
Professor of Economics of University of Western Sydney visited BIDS on 21
August, 2016 at 3:00pm and gave a presentation which provided critical overview
of the key elements of the development macroeconomic policies
pursued/recommended since the early 1980s and also offered some thoughts
on how macroeconomic policies should look like in the post-2015 development era.
This prompted a lively and extremely productive discussion with the young
researchers of BIDS. The discussion session ended with an interactive QnA where
Mr. Anis Chowdhury responded to the different questions from the researchers.
Dr. K. A. S. Murshid, Director General, BIDS and many of the senior researchers
of BIDS participated in the discussion.
