Business Beyond Boundaries and more at the CII Annual Meeting
Eastern India has been historically hailed to be very strongly ingrained with the country’s economic adventures. In fact as mentioned by economic historian Angus Maddison in his book, The World Economy: A Millennial Perspective, India had the world’s largest economy till the early 17th century and Eastern India contributed 15% of the world GDP.
But today Eastern India’s contribution if still good is not good enough. It’s 17% despite the demographic dividend, rich mineral reserves, the vast coastline and its close proximity to the East and South East Asian Countries.
Eastern India has a lot of potential to be a headlining writer of India’s growth story. To deliberate on this further the CII Eastern Region organized a conference on “Building East: Driving Development” coinciding with the Annual Regional Meeting on 17 March 2016 at Hotel ITC Sonar, Kolkata.
We as an organization connecting Eastern India to the world saw it prudent that we attend the conference to discuss ways of promoting overall development in the region such that the benefits percolate to all sections of the society thereby playing an important role in India’s development story.
Apart from the conference, various other sessions like Good Governance, Taking Business of Entertainment beyond Boundaries etc. were a part of the Annual General Meeting as well. The speakers, some of the most eminent names in this part of the country shared intriguing and unique perspectives.
Some of the notable names at the event were
Mr T V Narendran
Deputy Chairman, CII Eastern Region & Managing Director, Tata Steel Ltd;
Mr Chandrajit Banerjee
Director General, CII;
Mr Ajay Shankar, Chairman
Expert Committee on Ease of Doing Business in India, Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion (DIPP)Union Ministry of Commerce & Industry;
