The Partnership Summit

A range of global, regional and domestic factors have created new challenges and opportunities to global trade and growth. Recovery of advanced economies continue to be modest. Growth prospects of emerging economies too remain weak; the slowdown in China and lower commodity prices are affecting economic and trade growth.

Moreover, rise of Regional and Global Value Chains (RVCs/GVCs), regional and mega-regional trade blocks, multilateral banks and unmatched popularity and widespread acceptance of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are providing new opportunities.

Against this backdrop, the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) in partnership with the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion, Ministry of Commerce and Industry and State Government of Andhra Pradesh is organizing the 23rd edition of the Partnership Summit from 27-28 January 2017 in Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh.

The Partnership Summit, started in 1995 has become one of the most important international business events in the country. It aims to further partnerships to build ideologies based on shared dreams that bind societies together in this knowledge driven world. The Summit has established itself as an ideal ground for business networking and sharing of societal concerns where corporates seek a collective view beyond bottom lines.

The Partnership Summit has regularly featured Heads of States and Governments, Ministers, Senior Bureaucrats, Academicians and though leaders from all over the world.

The Prime Ministers of India, Singapore, Canada, UK, Italy, Czech Republic and President of India, Poland and Portugal have addressed the Partnership Summit since its start.

With over 23 years of active engagement and collaboration of India with the rest of the world, the Partnership Summit from the very onset provides a platform to stimulate the discussions among all stakeholders, the political and institutional circles on the best strategies and policies to help countries overcome the obstacles to improve competitiveness.
