New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will meet the members of his Economic  Advisory Council (EAC) which is headed by Niti Aayog member Bibek Debroy, on November 10 even as the panel is learnt to have finalised five key issues on which each of its five members will be preparing their reports.

Sources privy to developments said that it will be the first meeting of the EAC with Mr Modi after he had set up the council on September 25 amid sluggish economic growth and concerns over falling private investment in the country. The council is said to have identified issues like job creation & employment, economic growth and agriculture as key focus areas among five topics they were supposed to finalise before their second meeting. The reports on these five issues will be presented to the Prime Minister.

 

The Prime Minister’s meeting also comes just before the EAC’s second meeting which is expected to take place next week. During its first meeting held on October 11, the EAC had shortlisted apart from the three issues mentioned above, sectors like fiscal framework, patterns of consumption & production, social sector, public expenditure, informal sector, and institutions of economic governance, on which it will be focussing.
