Mum­bai: In­dia’s most high-pro­file event for the po­lit­i­cal and cor­po­rate elite, YES Bank and The Eco­nomic Times Global Busi­ness Sum­mit (GBS), is set to take place on March 27-28, 2017, in New Delhi. Over the two-day con­fer­ence, global lead­ers will pon­der over the most press­ing is­sues fac­ing the world econ­omy — post Trump Amer­ica, Brexit fall­out, fate of Eu­ro­zone, China slow­down — and also what will it take to deal with sur­prises and shocks of 2017. With ma­jor economies fal­ter­ing, In­dia, world’s fastest-grow­ing large econ­omy, finds it­self in a sweet spot and the ideas and in­sights gen­er­ated at GBS de­bates will help script the In­dia story bet­ter.

“In our con­nected world, the fu­tures of economies are be­com­ing in­creas­ingly in­ter-de­pen­dent. Thus the rip­ple ef­fect of events such as Brexit and fears of pro­tec­tion­ism in de­vel­oped economies can be felt in the fur­thest cor­ner of the globe. In this chal­lenge lies an op­por­tu­nity for In­dia to project it­self as a safe haven for in­vest­ment.” said Vi­neet Jain, MD, BCCL. As In­dian econ­omy en­ters into a trans­for­ma­tive phase, YES Bank has part­nered with The Eco­nomic Times for a five-year pe­riod to cre­ate the goto event for the coun­try’s cognoscenti. Un­der Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi’s lead­er­ship, the en­hanced fo­cus on pro­grammes like Make in In­dia, Dig­i­tal In­dia, Startup In­dia and at the same time de­ci­sive moves to fos­ter fi­nan­cial in­clu­sion and do away with ar­cane reg­u­la­tions, have re­sulted in cre­at­ing the right growth en­vi­ron­ment. “YES Bank has fo­cused on the emerg­ing sun­rise sec­tors of the econ­omy since in­cep­tion. The rapid changes tak­ing place in the In­dian econ­omy, with the gov­ern­ment of In­dia’s firm push on digi­ti­sa­tion, present an un­prece­dented and once-in-a-life­time op­por­tu­nity for the fi­nan­cial ser­vices in­dus­try to en­able sus­tain­able eco­nomic growth across all seg­ments of our na­tion, In­dia,” said Rana Kapoor, MD & CEO, YES Bank.

Over the past two years, The Eco­nomic Times Global Busi­ness Sum­mit has hosted over 2,000 del­e­gates from across the globe in­clud­ing coun­tries like Canada, USA, Rus­sia, Bel­gium, Great Bri­tain and Greece among oth­ers. This year will see more than 200 lead­ers from South Asia, Europe, Africa and Amer­i­cas par­tic­i­pat­ing in the con­fer­ence. Andhra Pradesh, which has set it­self a tar­get to be counted among the top 3 states by 2022, will be the of­fi­cial state part­ner.

The past two edi­tions of the Global Busi­ness Sum­mit have fea­tured a plethora of thought lead­ers like Paul Krug­man, Nouriel Roubini, Nas­sim Ni­cholas Taleb, Prof Jagdish Bhag­wati and Ram Cha­ran. Apart from the gu­rus, a clutch of global CEOs like McKin­sey’s Do­minic Bar­ton, GE’s John Rice, Glax­o­smithk­line’s An­drew Witty, BCG’s Hans-Paul Bürkner and PwC’s Den­nis Nally have shared the dais to head­line global trends in busi­ness.

This year, the names and the event are big­ger; the 3rd edi­tion of GBS will see par­tic­i­pa­tion from over 1,500 del­e­gates across the two-day event. With in­ter­na­tional par­tic­i­pa­tion ex­pected to dou­ble over GBS 2016, the mar­quee event will again bring to­gether the most in­flu­en­tial global thought-lead­ers and CEOs and of course, the who’s who of In­dian gov­ern­ment and in­dus­try.
