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 30, 2016, 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 analyse, discuss, debate on the most critical competitiveness challenges and opportunities facing the country.

The central theme of the conference this year is Innovation and Competitiveness with expected discussion topics like Innovation & Creation of Value by Enterprises, Innovation and State Competitiveness, Intellectual Property & Competitive Advantage, Emerging Frontier for Innovation Policy, New Age Manufacturing, Technology in Driving Competitiveness and Innovation Clusters. We are looking at bringing out a relatively robust agenda for interaction, sharing knowledge, and highlighting strategic issues through our deliberations.
