Indian Economic Association


The Indian Economic Association is a national level body of the economics professionals. There are number of Regional level bodies in the different states of the country, which organize their own annual conferences and other academic events at the regional levels. The Indian Economic Association has informal networking arrangements with the different Regional Economic Associations, with a view to promote synergy in the efforts aimed at improving the professional standards in the country.

In pursuance to our mission of reaching IEA activities to the grass root, IEA has been collaborating with Regional Economic Associations and University Departments and colleges, so that they may play more effective role by organizing seminars.
