BUILDING MOMENTUM FOR INDIA’S CENTURY
India is the world's fastest growing major economy. The Indian economy charted a recovery trajectory like no other as we exited the peak of the pandemic. Investor confidence in India is high with robust foreign investment inflows. The odds are in our favour with the largest working population, the largest global market, and the emergence of India as the manufacturing hub for the world. The world is bullish about the India story. But for India to become a true economic superpower, there is more to be done. The time now is for an unambiguous commitment to the Indian economy, to evolve policies, to grab opportunities, to ensure entrepreneurship, to innovate, and to collaborate.

And what more is to be done to boost India’s economic prospects ?
INVESTING IN INDIA INC.
With the onset of the pandemic, India Inc witnessed uncertain times. Corporate India was in a quagmire but remained resilient. Now, the tide is shifting. India Inc is bouncing back and building India’s growth trajectory. The net profit of listed companies as a percentage of GDP hit a decadal high. Corporate India has been pivotal in cementing India’s position in the global economy. The importance of private enterprise in driving innovation, bringing in investment and ensuring wealth creation, cannot be understated. Now is the time to catalyse the private sector. Now is the time to strengthen private enterprise. Now is the time to build partnerships that expedite development. It is with this vision that Republic brings together some of the best minds from corporate India on a single platform to put the focus on ‘Accelerating India Inc.’
THE FUTURE IS DIGITAL
A technology revolution is underway - it's the Fourth Industrial revolution and India is on the verge of transformation. The pandemic has proven that digital infrastructure is key to remain functional in the 21st century. As a Nation with 825.30 million internet users, as a Nation recording 25.5 billion real-time online transactions, and as the nation whose consumer digital economy is pegged to touch $800 billion by 2030 - for India, digital is pivotal. Education, infrastructure, connectivity, finance, entertainment, healthcare -- it is all going digital. With the impending foray of 5G, Digital India is all set to receive the biggest stimulus. To become a global superpower, winning the digital game is key. It is with this vision that the biggest names from the business will come together on the dais of the ‘India Economic Summit 2021’ to deliberate on the topic, ‘The Future is Digital’.
THE UNICORN RACE
India’s entrepreneurial ambition is the wind beneath the wings of the Indian economy. The Aatmanirbhar Bharat vision is hinged on India’s start-ups. And India is already breaking barriers. Over 30 startups made it to the unicorn club just this year. India has the third largest number of unicorns. It is a watershed moment, and the challenge is to continue steaming ahead. The need is to create and incubate more quality start-ups across a cross-section of sectors. The need of the hour is to keep up the momentum in the entrepreneurial race. This is why the biggest names from the start-up space will join us at the ‘India Economic Summit 2021’ to put the focus on ‘The Unicorn Race’.
THE GREEN MOBILITY SHIFT
Sustainability is not a buzzword, it is here to stay. India has set itself the goal of reaching carbon neutrality by 2070. The Government has set a target of 30% EV cars penetration by 2030. The future of mobility is green. EVs are set to transform global road transport, and India will be a colossal market. With a strong supply chain capacity, and consumer readiness, the Indian electric vehicle market may be over $200 billion by 2030. It is time to rebuild for a green future. At the ‘India Economic Summit 2021’, we bring together movers and shakers from the field to deliberate and discuss, ‘The Green Mobility Shift’.
