8 things the next government should do

These are few thoughts of our business heads on what next government should do:

Articulate the Promise 2019: Any government should measure their performance with respect to the promise they made. Ex: MW of generation capacity added. KM of national highways constructed. Mainly publish regular and transparent annual updates.

Measure social sector “outcome”: out policies are input focused, emphasising how much is spent in healthcare, education etc. Instead, measure outcome – how much is the outcome.
