World Economic Forum and Confederation of Indian Industry Sign New Collaboration Agreement

The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and the World Economic Forum today signed a new collaboration agreement. The agreement defines a close collaboration for the coming year and years to come, building on a successful collaboration of almost 30 years. CII and the Forum started their collaboration with the first World Economic Forum on India meeting in 1985.

The new agreement is a milestone in the partnership and will strengthen collaboration between the two organizations. The World Economic Forum’s mission is to support entrepreneurship in the global public interest, and the common objective with the Confederation of Indian Industry is to pursue this mission together in India.


The World Economic Forum is an international institution committed to improving the state of the world through public-private cooperation in the spirit of global citizenship. It engages with business, political, academic and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas.

Incorporated as a not-for-profit foundation in 1971 and headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, the Forum is independent, impartial and not tied to any interests. It cooperates closely with all leading international organizations (www.weforum.org).
