[RxPG] Patna, April 4 - A leading American university is keen to help Bihar with its expertise, beginning with a 'Mirror Conference' Thursday where experts will suggest ways for development of the state.

Stanford University, one of the world's leading research and teaching institutions, was invited by the state government to hold the two-day conference here.

'The conference will prove immensely beneficial for the process of development in Bihar,' said N.K. Singh, state planning board vice-chairman.

Experts from around the world will attend the conference and come up with suggestions for the much-needed development of the state.

Singh, a former member of the Planning Commission of India, said the conference would also serve as a prelude to the eighth annual conference of Indian Economic Reforms at Stanford in June 2007.

Stanford Centre for International Development has been fostering a policy dialogue with the Indian government over the years and four years ago it started mirror conferences to involve the state governments in pursuance of new generation policy reforms.

'The conference will discuss issues like employment, poverty and public-private partnership, lessons from Chinese economic growth and challenges to the federal model of growth in the context of Bihar,' Singh said.

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar will inaugurate the conference.

Leading experts like T.N. Srinivasan, Nicholas Hope, Anjini Kochar, Ward Hanson and Jessica Wallack will present papers on Bihar's economic strategy.

Standford University has held similar state level dialogues in West Bengal, Rajasthan, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Punjab and Kerala.
