India has become the world’s fastest-growing big economy, expanding by more than 7.5% in 2015. Encouraged by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ambitious talk of structural reforms, investors are flocking to the country in the hope of big profits.
India’s digital economy is also growing rapidly: the number of smartphone users is predicted to increase from around 300m in early 2016 to over 500m in five years’ time. India’s booming start-up sector attracted more than $9 billion in funding in 2015, suggesting that foreign and domestic investors are well aware of the opportunities.
India Summit: The innovation economy will gather opinion leaders from government, business and academia for a frank and forward-looking discussion about India’s innovation economy, its prospects for growth and the challenges it will face.
