India 2020 on the table

The Indian economy needs to tap emerging opportunities to become a force to reckon with in the global arena. The youth of the country must play a crucial role in the process.

Experts will deliberate on the economy and strategies for growth across sectors at a conclave on “India as a market in 2020” at Williamson Magor Hall on Saturday as the nation prepares to vote in a new government. The conclave is being organised by the Bengal Chamber of Commerce & Industry in association with The Telegraph and the JIS Group.

“We would like to have concrete strategies on the table. It will be more of a forecast rather than a speculation. Work has to begin now for it to pay dividends five to six years later. This being the election year, it is significant to evaluate the key areas for the new government to focus on,” said Sandipan Chakravortty, MD, Tata Steel Processing & Distribution Limited. He will chair and moderate the panel discussion.

Richard Rekhy, CEO, KPMG India, will flag off the meet with his keynote address. Other speakers include Partha Sinha, director (India & South Asia), Publicis Group, Anshu Budhraja, COO, Amway India, Annurag Batra, chairman, exchange4media Group, Narayan Devanathan, EVP & national planning head, Dentsu India and Subho Samanta, group senior VP, president, SI global delivery & SI emerging markets, Atos India.

M. Damodaran, former chairman, UTI, IDBI and SEBI, will deliver the valedictory address.
