About Madurai Symposium
The Madurai Symposium is a development platform where development stakeholders—community institutions, civil societies, the Government, non-government organisations (NGOs), financial institutions and academia—converge at Madurai for conventions, conferences and a development carnival. Three biennial symposiums were organized in Madurai in 2003, 2005 and 2007. Each Symposium was attended by over 15,000 participants. The 2009 Madurai Symposium will be held in September 2009 and will bring development stakeholders together to share and learn from each others’ experiences and practices.
