India’s new Chief Economic Advisor
US-based economist Arvind Subramanian on Thursday took charge as chief economic adviser in the finance ministry, two months after finance minister Arun Jaitley recommended his name to the Prime Minister’s office.
He is a development economist who worked closely with Reserve Bank of India Governor Raghuram Rajan when both were at the International Monetary Fund.
Specializing in economic growth, international trade and intellectual property rights, Subramanian was involved in the Uruguay Round of multilateral trade negotiations in 1988-92, which led to the creation of the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 1995.
