LJLA Fellows Explore India’s Economic Success During their international trip to India, the Lateef Jakande Leadership Academy (LJLA) Fellows deepened their understanding of the country’s journey in economic scaling, foreign policy, urban development, and implementation strategies.
 The day commenced with a visit to the Research and Information System for Developing Countries (RIS) at the India Habitat Centre in New Delhi, where the fellows gained insights into India’s economic strategies and its scaling mechanisms. 
 The Fellows were welcomed by the Director General of RIS, Professor Sachin Chaturvedi, who guided them through a detailed exposition of India’s economic policies and its strategic approaches to economic development, focusing on successful policies that have fostered growth and stability. 
 Chaturvedi explained key areas such as infrastructure development, digital transformation, and inclusive growth, providing the fellows with valuable lessons on how these strategies can be adapted in Nigeria. 
 Following the economic policy session, the fellows had an opportunity to meet the Joint Secretary of Policy, Planning & Research from the Ministry of External Affairs, S. Raghuram IFS, who highlighted India’s foreign policy, democracy, and governance success stories. 

  In order to properly understand urban planning and the importance of reliable public transportation in metropolitan development, the Fellows concluded the day with a visit to the Delhi Metro Station, where they experienced firsthand the efficiency and effectiveness of Delhi’s metro system. 
 The Lagos Head of Service, Mr. Bode Agoro, who led the Delegation, explained that LJLA is dedicated to nurturing Young change-oriented leaders by providing them with opportunities to learn from global best practices.
 “This policy trip is expected to play a crucial role in shaping their perspectives and strategies as they prepare to implement similar innovative initiatives in Lagos and Nigeria as a whole” He added.

    I agree with Mr. Bode Agro, head of delegation to India.I strongly believe that gains from this trip will impact both LASG’s key policies henceforth, particularly in terms of Railway infrastructural management(it’s worthy to note that India has the largest most organized railway network in the world) as well has Fellows(who now have a first hand accessment of India’s economic policy regulation by meeting with top Govt. Officials driving this policies.A report on this journey by Fellows if I may suggest will form a reference material which will aid us all & academic students for years to come.
