India’s growth has been instrumental in ensuring that South Asia is the fastest-growing region in the world. As the world economy undergoes a slowdown, it is critical that India continues on this trajectory to ensure regional and global growth. At the same time, the country should take a more active role in geo-strategic affairs. As the largest democracy and with a pluralistic society, India’s active global engagement has a symbolic significance. For this to be Asia’s century, India’s role is crucial.
The 2017 India Economic Summit, held in partnership with the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), will explore these issues, and more. The meeting will take place in New Delhi from 4-6 October.
