Economist Conferences is part of the Economist Group, publisher of The Economist, and is the leading provider worldwide of forums for senior executives seeking insights into strategic issues. Every year, we conduct over 300 meetings globally, including industry conferences, customised events and government roundtables.

As the Indian economy continues to grow robustly, despite the difficulties thrown up by the global recession, there is more interest than ever in such a high-level forum, where business and government leaders can address the challenges and opportunities presented by the expected recovery in 2010.

Typically, a Roundtable comprises of presentations by ministers and senior policymakers, followed by panel discussions and comments and questions from the audience. The sessions aim to promote open and frank discussion, in an atmosphere of constructive engagement with the government.

The Business Roundtable with the Government of India would form an important part of the highly successful global Government Roundtable series. They have successfully created a long-running business-government dialogue in many countries around the world, Spain most notably being supported by the incumbent Spanish prime minister for each of the past 19 years.
