Latest ‘Talking Economics Digest’ Innovation Special Issue Released!

Driving innovation in Sri Lanka is now increasingly being recognized as a key determinant of the country’s long term growth prospects. Everyone from private sector leaders to government policy planners are keen to understand how the power of innovation can be ignited to drive enterprise profitability and drive faster and inclusive growth nationally. We decided to tackle this issue in the latest version of the IPS Talking Economics Digest through an ‘Innovation Special Issue’.


The TE Digest is a bi-annual publication of the Institute, which compiles the articles featured on this blog every 6 months, together with special feature segments. The latest edition of the Digest was launched last week at forum on ‘Igniting the Power of Innovation in Sri Lanka’ that the IPS organised with the National Science Foundation (NSF). As we distribute only a limited number of printed copies of the Digest, we present here an e-version of it for you. Read it online via Scribd below or download as a PDF.
