New Delhi, April 10, 2022 — The Vice President of India, Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu, has highlighted the importance of evidence-based policymaking to ensure that governance is responsive to the changes and disruptions around us. He also called for constant rethink and readjustment of policies and programs as per emerging needs and requirements.

The Vice President recently interacted with the participants of the Indian School of Business (ISB)’s Advanced Management Programme in Public Policy. He called for developing innovative business models to find solutions to everyday problems ordinary people face, such as solid waste management or monetization of crop waste to help farmers check air pollution.

Quoting the World Bank and IMF projections of the high growth rate of the Indian economy, the Vice President underlined that the country holds tremendous potential and opportunities for entrepreneurs and investors. “To bring about the desired change, it is important that the government and private sector work together and build a better and stronger India,” he said.

Talking about the rapid pace of urbanization in India, the Vice President said it presents its challenges and opportunities. “Our policymakers will have to ensure that urban citizens have access to affordable housing, education, and healthcare,” he added, urging all states and the private sector to make the cities vibrant and inclusive living spaces.

The Vice President called for bridging the urban, rural divide and said that ”we must make efforts to make people in rural areas feel included as part of the developmental journey of the country”.

Underlining that the ultimate goal of any policy, innovation, or institution is to make people’s lives happier and more comfortable, Shri Naidu called for increasing people’s participation in governance and policy formulation. In addition, the Vice President called for dynamism in policymaking and administration, emphasizing the importance of the ”delivery” component of public services.

He appreciated the Indian School of Business for conducting the course with a particular focus on Public Policy. The study titled - ”Advanced Management Programme in Public Policy” is meant to hone the managerial skills of the working professionals in the public and private sectors. The Vice President expressed hope that a mixed batch of private and public sector mid-career students will help in cross-learning from each other.

Professor Madan Pillutla, Dean, Indian School of Business, Mr. DNV Kumara Guru, Director - External Relations, Indian School of Business, senior officials, and ISB Public Policy program participants were present.
