India Ahead: Exploring legal, regulatory and geopolitical updates impacting FDI in the world’s fastest growing economy

While the world is going through a slow-down, India continues to remain a beacon of hope. Foreign investment into India continues to remain on the rise, with e-commerce, manufacturing, fintech having a more prominent focus. After redefining the “Global South” with a successful G20 Conference, the nation continues to stay ahead of the curve with landmark developments in data, climate action, ADR mechanisms and numerous regulatory reforms.

On the geopolitical front, India has solidified its position as a stable alternative to many jurisdictions in South-East Asia, making it, as The Economist put it, “America’s (and the West’s) New Best Friend”.   

The Seminar promises the best of the nation’s financial capital, with the best in the nation and the world, underscoring the new era of Doing Business in India.

Mark your diaries now and make sure to register! We are looking forward to welcoming you to Mumbai!
