International Monetary Fund. Secretary's Department

Abstract

It is an honor and privilege for me to welcome you on this occasion, to welcome all of you who have come here to this great gathering but more especially those who have come from distant countries. We are happy that you decided to hold this conference of these great international financial agencies in Delhi. We are happy for various reasons. One is because this would enable us to know you better and to learn much from you and enable us to express our gratitude for the help that these agencies have given us in the past and in the present. Another is because I think it might be somewhat profitable for many of you, distinguished delegates, to have an opportunity to have a glimpse into our minds in our own environment.
