Companies across the world increasingly prefer to source intermediate goods and services from suppliers and service providers across the nations to gain cost efficiency and productivity. The highlights of the three-day Summit are Conference, Exhibition, B2B Meetings, industry/ field visit and release of Handbook on GVCs.

We expect over 500 business leaders, experts, policymakers from India and over 25 Countries to deliberate and discuss on the opportunities/challenges for SMEs to integrate into global value chains.

The previous editions of the Global Economic Summit addressed topics such as Trade and Investment Opportunities, Small and Medium Enterprises, Clusters in One World: Perspectives from Many Nations, Asia: Powering Global Markets, Enabling Food for All, Women Empowerment: Entrepreneurship, Innovation & Capacity Building which witnessed participation from over 500 delegates across 30 countries including India.
