Welcome to the 2011 Kellogg India Business Conference
Building Bridges, Creating Connections
Eighteen years after its economic liberalization, India has emerged as a robust international economy and is well on its way to becoming a global superpower, with the world taking notice of the hunger Indian businesses have for global expansion. At the same time, the Indian consumer market has emerged as an enormous opportunity for businesses from around the globe.
At this year’s conference, we continue to explore the opportunities created through India’s expanding business footprint and examine the dichotomy that development has produced – progress on the one hand and inequities in affordability, education and healthcare on the other. The conference will build bridges between global business leaders and a thriving Indian economy that has established itself as a pillar of the world economy.
Speakers & Panelists this year include:
Praful Patel - Minister for Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises (formerly MInister of State for Civil Aviation)
Sam Pitroda - Advisor to Prime Minister of India (Information Infrastructure & Innovation)
Shikha Sharma - Managing Director & CEO, Axis Bank
