WTI researcher presents at international government procurement conference

WTI senior researcher and faculty member Anirudh Shingal presented the case of India at a recent conference on the internationalisation of government procurement regulation at the European University Institute in Florence.

The conference on 15-16 December examined the drivers behind the process of internationalisation of procurement policy regimes over the past 20 years, how this is likely to develop, and how procurement processes can be made more efficient in future. A particular focus was on enforcement and accountability mechanisms.

Country studies – including that on India – introduced a comparative angle, describing the state of play in terms of procurement policy, approaches towards transparency and reporting, and use of dispute settlement mechanisms.
