Enhancing India’s Competitiveness

Note from the President and CEO

Dear Colleague,

It is a pleasure for me to share that India Council of Competitiveness will be hosting its flagship event, India’s National Competitiveness Forum (NCF) on September 25, 2015 in New Delhi. The event is a discussion platform, which is aimed to set the agenda for India’s growth and competitiveness by engaging top leaders, renowned thinkers and selected government leaders. The leaders will make deliberations on the state of India’s competitiveness and other pressing issues.

The discussion topics will be based on the theme of Manufacturing Competitiveness, Financial Inclusion, Social Progress, Role of Financial Institutions on Competitiveness, Technology in Driving Competitiveness, Cluster Competitiveness and its Enabling Environment. We are looking at bringing out a fairly robust agenda for interaction, sharing knowledge, and highlighting strategic issues through our deliberations.

For speaking opportunities, kindly get in touch with me at amit.kapoor@compete.org.in and to support or partner with the forum contact Neera Vohra (Program Coordinator, Institute for Competitiveness, India) at neera.vohra@competitiveness.in.

Would request you to block the date on your calendar. Look forward to having you with us at India’s National Competitiveness Forum 2015.
