PARC aims to engage, structure, study, evaluate & revise policies, reforms and initiate action to positively impact society in the interest of the nation and citizens which is underpinned by the ethos of Nation-First approach

The focus in policy areas ranges from economic development, urban & rural development, human capital development, political development & governance, solid waste management, food & nutrition security, art & culture, industry and more to understand socio-economic issues and suggest action-oriented solutions that can shape the growth trajectory of the economy and contribute to nation’s development

PARC engages in dialogue and further action with emerging territories within the country & developing nations to catalyse their socio-economic growth through technology & knowledge transfer, trade, support infrastructural development and an economic multiplier effect through investments.
