Forecasting the current geopolitical and economic crisis with Chief Guest Montek Singh Ahluwalia, Indian Economist and Former Deputy Chairman of the Planning Commission of India and Moderator Sanjeev Krishan, Chairman PwC India.
In his talk with Ahluwalia, Sanjeev Krishan brought up the fact that the globe is, either for political reasons or for other reasons, turning inside once more. So, what according to Mr. Ahluwalia, has changed in the last thirty years?
Pivot away from China for both technologically advanced and less advanced items is only for diversification, and this is what provides India with an opportunity. In terms of international trade, the simple fact that it will expand more slowly means that it will be bad for both us and other countries too. India ought to profit from the new prospects that are emerging, but first, our policies must be in line with what is required, which necessitates extensive internal rethinking.

Gurnani, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Tech Mahindra, in his address, elaborated upon "Technology Leadership in an accelerating world."He stated technology has become horizontal today covering all verticals and enabling customers, employees, investors, and business partners to do what they perceive as good business.
