The Third Annual Growth Net Summit was the first major economic meet to be held in India since the Modi government’s economic vision was detailed in the Union Budget. Focused on growth drivers in Asia, Africa and Latin America, the Summit brought together stakeholders from emerging economies and the rest of the world on one platform to look at synergies to increase business opportunities, encourage innovation, and enhance job opportunities. Launched in 2013, the Growth Net series reflects the new realities created by the emergence of new growth countries, which are rapidly increasing their business, economic, trade, and financial interactions, and aspire to have a stronger voice in the global economy. It serves as a catalyst to develop fruitful dialogue among business leaders, government officials, and civil society, from the countries of the new constellation of growth, on how to strengthen economic momentum and generate new sources of growth, through the deepening of partnership strategies for rapid sustainable development in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
Themed Creating New Drivers of Growth, the 3rd Annual Growth Net Summit was co-convened by Ananta Centre and Smadja & Smadja Strategic Advisory in partnership with the Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India from 25th – 27th March 2015 in New Delhi. The Summit brought together more than 60 speakers from 17 countries including business and political leaders, eminent media personalities, senior officials along with thought-leaders who shared insights and best practices to raise economic resilience and generate new business opportunities.
