The Forum is a non-political and non-partisan organization founded in
1956 by the late A.D. Shroff, eminent industrialist and economist, to
educate public opinion in India on free enterprise and its close
relationship with the democratic way of life. The Forum seeks to
stimulate public thinking on vital economic issues of the day through
its various activities.
While the main objective of the Forum is
economic education of the public, particularly with regard to the role
of private enterprise in economic development of India, it is also
actively focussing on the youth with a view to developing them into
good, responsible and well-informed citizens of tomorrow.
Booklets and public meetings on vital
economic issues, elocution and essay competitions, good citizenship
camps, etc. Generally, up to six booklets are published in a year, which
are sent to all the Members and Student Associates.
