Under the theme, ‘NXT10’ India Global Forum (IGF) will be examining the next decade of India's growth, as the country continues its march towards becoming the third largest economy in the world. ‘NXT10’ will convene leading figures from the world of business, politics, art and culture from 5-6 March to discuss what the next ten years beckons for India’s economy and geopolitical standing.
In a highly anticipated session titled ‘What Analysts Get Wrong About India’, Union Minister Amit Shah will tackle head-on his views on narratives that often dominate western headlines about India's growth, politics and society.
Manoj Ladwa, Founder & Chairman, IGF, said, "Home Minister Amit Shah’s first ever intervention of this nature at India Global Forum will be keenly awaited not only in India, but globally. He will set out, I am sure in his own candid style, his assessment of the India today, and his vision for the coming decade.”
“India has experienced remarkable progress in the last 10 years. India is now leading the world in technology, innovation and science. The world has seen the rise of a nation confident in itself, and its place in the world. India is expected to become the third-largest economy in the world with a GDP of $5 trillion in the next three years and touch $7 trillion by 2030. NXT10 heralds a pivotal decade for India as a global powerhouse,” said Manoj Ladwa.
