Honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the plenary of this prestigious summit of summits. PM will be the first India Prime Minister to be participating since 1997.

There are dedicated India session that focus on the Role of India in shaping the world, outlining the Country’s Promise to the future and the path to get there. Here’s a look at the sessions
Vanguard WEF session

Corruption is symptomatic of a fractured world; it is an obstacle to stability, sustainable growth, equity and the competitiveness of economies. 

The global environment is witnessing unprecedentedly low levels of trust between stakeholders.In light of this operating environment, how can business and institutional leaders rebuild trust and integrity to address corruption? Participants in this session will share latest trends and explore solutions to rebuild trust and integrity through public-private-cooperation. Insights emerging from the discussion will be incorporated into PACI’s agenda for 2018-2019, which will be taken forward by the Co-Chairs and the Vanguard board.

India's role in the world

Political change, structural reform and technological innovation are changing the socio-economic context of India. Examine how global challenges, national priorities and local trends are reshaping India’s stance in the world.

Country Strategy Dialogue on India

With a view towards 75 years of independence in 2022, major structural reforms are currently underway in India. What is the country’s promise for the future and the path to get there?

Reimagining Policy-Making for the Fourth Industrial Revolution

Production has traditionally been a key driver of economic growth and prosperity of nations, but that is changing fast. In addition, productivity distribution within and across borders is vastly disparate, with widespread two-speed economies and 90% of global manufacturing added value concentrated in only 20 countries.

As emerging technologies from the Fourth Industrial Revolution disrupt production systems in unprecedented ways, decision-makers need new tools and approaches to swiftly develop and implement the next generation of industrial strategies that drive inclusive, sustainable growth at the national, regional and global level. This session will leverage the results of the Forum’s new Country Readiness for the Future of Production Assessment 2017-2018 to engage senior leaders from government, business, academia and civil society

Game Changers Asia

Shaping the Future of Production: Board of Stewards Meeting

In 2017, the Stewardship Board of the System Initiative on Shaping the Future of Production mandated a series of new opportunities for partnership between the public and private sectors to enable a successful transition to the future projects and requested urgent action to provide insight and drive collaborative efforts. This session would bring  fresh insights from work to date and identify of opportunities for partnership between the public and private sectors to enable a successful transition to the future of production.

Building Communities: The Future of Employment in Manufacturing and Production

Artificial intelligence, robotics, advanced data analytics and other intelligent technologies may not be net job destroyers in production industries. Instead, research shows that, as automation eliminates some jobs on the factory floor, new jobs are being created elsewhere in the greater manufacturing ecosystem – because of technology and other macro-trends that are influencing where and how goods are made and distributed. Production industries will continue to grow, as will productivity, meaning the role of humans in the workforce will fundamentally change as activities are augmented by technology. The rapidly changing skill demand in production industries worldwide calls for partnerships where public and private constituents work towards a common goal centred on the worker that supports a just transition.

Global leaders from government, industry, education and civil society  explore solutions to tackle challenges of employment and skills in production today, and be part of the launch pad for action and future collaboration

Scaling Technologies in Production: The Next Economic Growth Engine

The session will bring together leaders from government, production enterprises, technology pioneers, civil society and academia to identify collaborative actions to accelerate Fourth Industrial Revolution technology adoption and innovation at scale across industries and regions

Facilitation 2.0 - Trade, Investment and Service

Boosting global commerce in the 21st century means making it easier to trade goods and services and invest abroad. Simplification, automation, harmonization and transparency are just some of the ways to reduce frictions and help trade and investment flow.

The Global Alliance for Trade Facilitation is delivering commercially impactful border reforms through collaboration by business, donors and governments.

What have we learnt and how can we further cooperate to accelerate practical reforms to ease investment and trade in goods and services?

National Infrastructure Acceleration (NIA)

Continuous and close public-private collaboration at the country level is crucial to unlocking the capital necessary to bridge the infrastructure financing gap. Focusing on select countries, the NIA initiative serves as a platform to help create conditions to attract greater private-sector participation in national infrastructure projects. To achieve this, the initiative convenes national multistakeholder working groups, recognized and endorsed by the national governments concerned, to identify actionable solutions to facilitate infrastructure financing and development. The aim of this collaborative approach is to achieve tangible progress in a relatively short time frame (12 months) to contribute to accelerating the project delivery process in each country. NIA is active in Argentina, Brazil, India and Viet Nam and has been successfully completed in Indonesia. This session is the first high-level gathering of NIA steering communities

Readiness for the Future of Production: Next-Generation Industrial Strategies

Production has traditionally been a key driver of economic growth and prosperity of nations, but that is changing fast. In addition, productivity distribution within and across borders is vastly disparate, with widespread two-speed economies and 90% of global manufacturing added value concentrated in only 20 countries.

As emerging technologies from the Fourth Industrial Revolution disrupt production systems in unprecedented ways, decision-makers need new tools and approaches to swiftly develop and implement the next generation of industrial strategies that drive inclusive, sustainable growth at the national, regional and global level.
