With the election of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in May 2014, India has entered a new phase of optimism. The economy has grown approximately 7 percent each year and the government has launched several initiatives, such as Make in India, to show the world its manufacturing potential. The Prime Minister’s visits with 26 countries in his first year in office, including his visits to NYC and Washington, D.C., signal India’s desire to become an international player and to improve its diplomatic and economic influence. To date, Modi’s domestic achievements have sought to provide citizens with a wide range of necessities, from the provision of toilets in all schools to the opening of 140 million bank accounts.
With this context as its backdrop, India Conference 2015, organized by the Emerging Markets Institute at the Johnson Graduate School of Management at Cornell University, will open a debate around these changes and their implications for the global finance, manufacturing and technology sectors, as well as opportunities for innovation. What opportunities can investors and businesses expect from India over the next 12 months? The Conference will attempt to answer this question and more, and all are invited. The day-long agenda will include three keynote speakers:
In addition to these prominent speakers, several in-depth discussions will cover the state of India’s economy and capital markets; research & development and innovation opportunities; and Make in India, a national effort to improve India’s economy.
