About Us Doing Business with India

Pravasi Bharatiya Divas 2012

The tenth edition of the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas (PBD) Convention will be held in Jaipur from 7-9th January, 2012. The Prime Minister will inaugurate this flagship event of the Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs on January 8 and the President will deliver the valedictory address on 9 January.

In the forthcoming PBD, there will as usual be discussions related to development issues such as health, education, youth and inclusive growth etc. It is expected that PBD will have enthusiastic participation from the diverse overseas Indian community spread across the globe.

The effort is to have a meaningful and interactive event that would address issues and concerns of the overseas Indian community. Overseas Indians have emerged as important constituents of their adopted countries. They have contributed to transforming the economies, participating in political process and added value to thought and innovation of their destination countries. They also serve to build bridges between their present homeland and the land of their ancestors.

PBD 2012 is being conducted in partnership with the Government of Rajasthan. Our Institutional Partner is CII.


India’s Economic Strength:


With strong democratic principles, grassroots politics, inclusive growth model, strong civil society groups, media, Judiciary and the inbuilt system of checks, India is clearly a model for developing democratic societies.  At the global fora, India is playing a predominant role in G-20, G8-G5, NAM, CHOGM etc.  and forging multinational and regional partnerships in BRIC, IBSA, EAS, BIMSTEC, SAARC, SCO, IOR, ARC, etc.  India’s  voice today earns respect. Global powers are calling for a ‘new world economic order’, reforms of global economic and financial architecture where India’s central role in the global economy is well recognized.
