Over the last three decades many economies have gained rapid economic development. However it is noteworthy that the growth has not benefited within the economy equally leading to imbalanced society. With the recent economic crisis in different parts of the world, it appears that growth models of different countries are not sustainable. Further, economists and policy makers ponder the question of whether there involves a trade-off between inclusive growth and sustainable development. Thus, the major and immediate challenge of the current century is to generate inclusive, balanced and sustainable growth. In order to create a better and sustainable future, Governments, Corporate and NGOs need to work collectively and playing their respective roles most effectively.

In this backdrop, it becomes essential to provide a stimulating platform for academicians and practitioners representing the Economics, Finance, Environment, Development Studies and related disciplines to reflect, deliberate, and suggest measures that are needed both at macro and the micro level to elevate India and other backward economies to higher and sustained growth trajectory. From this perspective, Department of Commerce, Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University, Aurangabad is organizing the international conference on “Inclusive Growth and Sustainable Development- Emerging Trends and Challenges” on 9th – 10th March 2018.
