IIMB Business Conclave 2019

The theme for this year is “India in 2030”. India is expected to become the third largest economy in the world by 2030 with GDP touching $10 Trillion. Visions of AI and human-machine interaction are reshaping the Indian economy. The nation plans to launch its space station by 2030, and it will reap the benefits of its increasing demographic dividend. We would witness a decline in poverty and the exponential growth of the middle class.

The key areas in which India needs to focus over the next decade are Quality Education, Healthcare, Agriculture, Manufacturing, Clean Energy, Climate Change and other sustainable and economic goals. With Technology acting as an enabler in all these areas, let’s find out how it is going to shape our lives in the next decade.

Hence, the theme of this year’s conclave aims to focus on how to achieve these goals.
