Following India’s national elections, the last India Economic Summit
brought together the Prime Minister of India and 15 members of the Union
Cabinet with international and domestic business leaders to outline an
agenda for inclusive growth.
This year’s Summit has the objective of moving from an agenda to
action. It will focus on how domestic and international decision-makers
from business, government and civil society can implement national
policies across states in both rural and urban areas. To fulfil the goal
of achieving “double-digit” growth, India’s imperatives include
building critical infrastructure, expanding skills development and
achieving income and gender equality.
The programme for this year’s Summit will convene under the theme
“Implementing India” and will pay particular attention to how the
necessities for inclusive social and economic progress can be delivered
and serve as a model for other developing economies.
