Since its inception, PAFI has been actively promoting public affairs as a profession and providing regular interactions and opportunities to exchange views and share experience. It is the belief of Public Affairs Forum of India (PAFI), that public affairs will play an increasingly significant role in organizations as well as the development of India’s economy.
The objective of PAFI and its members is to provide knowledge and context to aid an informed decision-making on policy.
