Invitation to participate in the 8th Global Economic Summit 2019 on the theme ‘Services: Enabler of Growth for Trade and Industry’ from March 6-8, 2019 at World Trade Centre Mumbai

We are pleased to inform you that World Trade Centre (WTC) Mumbai and All India Association of Industries (AIAI) are jointly organizing the 8th Global Economic Summit 2019 on the theme ‘Services: Enabler of Growth for Trade and Industry’  scheduled from March 6-8, 2019 at World Trade Centre Mumbai.

The earlier editions of the Global Economic Summit addressed various topics on MSMEs to promote Trade and Investment opportunities, Clusters, Agriculture, Women Empowerment, Global Value Chains in Manufacturing and had seen participation of over 500 delegates from across 30 countries including India. We expect a similar level of participation in this edition as well.

Service sector is the largest contributor to the world economy, as it accounts for nearly 70% of global GDP, 60% of world employment and 46% of global exports measured in value-added terms, yet there is further scope of enhancement. At present, the growth of the service sector across the globe is highly uneven. While in the developed countries the service sector has witnessed rapid progress, in many developing and least developed countries (LDCs), the service sector’s contribution to the overall economy remains insignificant. This is largely because world-over several services have not been able to penetrate across sectors.

The Summit will showcase opportunities for small, medium and large organizations to integrate services in enhancing manufacturing and agriculture sectors. It will also enable governments to enhance their competitiveness in global services by helping them to adopt various social and policy initiatives as well as advancements in information and communication technologies.

We are pleased to inform you that IIM Bangalore under the guidance of Dr. Rupa Chanda, RBI Chair Professor in Economics is associated with this Summit as the ‘Knowledge Partner’. Dr. Chanda has helped in drafting a paper on ‘Trade Facilitation in Services’ for Govt. of India at WTO.   The Polish Investment & Trade Agency is also supporting ‘International Partner’ promoting this Summit globally.

We look forward to your positive response and thank you in anticipation.
