Philadelphia’s Mayor Michael Nutter has proclaimed Saturday 21 February, the day of the Wharton India Economic Forum, as India Day to encourage local awareness of business development in India and a greater understanding of the impact of India’s rise in the global marketplace.
The theme of this year’s conference is ‘India: Delivering the Dream’. With general elections behind us and new leadership and policies in place, India is poised to deliver some much needed change. This year’s conference aims to evaluate the opportunities for success and the key factors that will be critical for India moving forward.
Showcasing 4 panels, one dedicated to this theme, WIEF strives to be a forum for delegates to reassess India’s economic growth trajectory, re-evaluate its regulatory landscape and draw up an action plan to ensure the country meets its full potential over the coming years.
