7th Annual India Business Forum Conference

Innovative India: Creating Value & Opportunities

23rd April, 2009, London

The India Business Forum (IBF), formulated in the year 2002, aims to further the role of India in the global business milieu. With London Business School as the platform, the IBF is a confluence of Global Business Leaders, Leading Academicians, Financiers, Entrepreneurs and Students to discuss and debate pertinent issues relating to doing business in and with India.

Once sidelined as a “third world” country to more recently joining the powerful G20 club, the incredible metamorphosis of India has pleasantly surprised the world. These tumultuous times, though bode well for further surprises, do beg the question of “where from here?” At the 7th Annual London Conference the India Business Forum connects experts and industrialists which have been a part of this incredible growth story and who are best placed to forecast its future economic performance trajectory.

INDOLINK will attend the Forum to witness and participate in an intellectual marathon that has a global bearing/impact.
