WEF meet to see largest ever participation

Written by: Staff

New Delhi, Nov 22 (UNI) The grand jamboree of corporates descending on the Capital to participate in the annual World Economic Forum (WEF) meetings from November 26 to 28 has its theme 'India; meeting new expectations,' in line with the new image and spirit which prevails nationally and internationally.

''The theme reflects the increased emphasis on the role of state governments and public-private partnerships in building India's future growth objectives'', Ms Colette Mathur, Senior Advisor to the Managing Board of the World Economic Forum (WEF) told a Press Conference here.

Ms Mathur said this will be the largest ever gathering of CEO's at WEF meetings and narrated how in the initial years the Forum had a problem in getting people to attend the event. Much water has flown in the rivers since then and now there is a scramble for attending the meetings, she said.

Ms Mathur said the large attendance was a manifestation of the growing importance that the world now gives to India.

The others who addressed the event included Mr R Seshasayee, President Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), Mr Lee Howell, Director, Head of Asia, WEF; Mr S S Mehta, Director General, CII and Mr Ajay Khanna, Drector, CII.

More than 600 business, political and civil society leaders from more than 30 countries will take part in the 22nd 'India Economic Summit 2006,' jointly hosted by WEF and CII.
