CII’s Partnership Summit, held annually since 1995 - CII’s Centenary Year, has helped international thought-leaders and businesses to engage and participate in shaping debates on global economic dimensions as well as India’s growth and external engagement. Bringing together government leaders, industry, experts and analysts, it has contributed to forging new partnerships, over the years.

The Partnership Summit has been organized jointly with the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (or its earlier forms) since inception. Every year, The Partnership Summit highlights India’s economic reform process, captures key industry and investment policies and opens up opportunities for investment in India across multiple sectors. It acts as a Global platform for dialogue, debate, deliberation and engagement among leaders from all walks of life. The Summit also helps build new partnerships and explore national and international investment through high level networking and structured B2B meetings.

Last year, the Partnership Summit 2020 was held virtually for the first time. The summit was the largest ever and brought together about 7,000 + participants from over 100 countries. Celebrating 125 years of CII, it included 10 Indian Ministers, 19 Ministers from 16 countries,
