This short video looks at the role of business in responding to poverty, illiteracy and gender inequality in South Asia. It forms part of the on-going Creating Emerging Markets project at the Harvard Business School directed by Professor Geoffrey Jones, which uses interviews of top business leaders and other digital sources to explore the role of business in South Asia, as well as Africa and Latin America. The South Asian interviews, which are approaching twenty in number, were conducted by Tarun Khanna, SAI’s Director, and by other senior faculty of the Harvard Business School. The transcripts are downloadable at, and holders of Harvard ID’s can access the full video interviews.
