 by . London-based think tank Bridge India is organising ‘Ideas Of India’ conference in London on 22-24 April 2020. This unique event will bring together business, policy and NRI leaders from the UK, India, Europe and further afield to discuss the next wave of India’s growth as an economy and a nation.

Bridge India is a progressive non-profit think tank dedicated to discourse on public policy for the betterment of India. The ‘India Story’ abroad is often presented through a narrow lens, be it focusing only on business and the economy, society or policy landscape. Given its diversity, everything about India, and its polar opposite, is true in unison. Bridge India seeks to highlight and celebrate this nuance, to help India-watchers understand India better.

The event is expected to have over 400 attendees, 50+ foreign delegates, 10+ countries represented, 12+ sessions, spread over 3 days to create one unique form with a million Ideas For India. Ideas For India will take place over three days: Day 1 in the British Houses of Parliament, Day 2 with focused, parallel business and policy dialogue sessions, and Day 3 with an all-day business conference followed by an invite-only black-tie dinner.

Some of the session topics include: How attractive is India as an investment destination, India’s energy security, Fake news in India, AI conclave, Data privacy and security, Exclusive breakfast briefings, What is India’s position in the world, What is your Idea of India, and Delivering for the bottom 90% of India.

Some of the confirmed speakers include Lord Karan Bilimoria (President, Confederation of British Industry), Mohandas Pai (Chairman, Manipal Global Education), Karan Thapar (TV news anchor), Nakul Saxena (Head of Policy, iSpirt Foundation), Sitaram Yechury (General Secretary, CPI (M)), Abhinandan Sekhri (CEO, Newslaundry), Dinesh Dhamija MEP (Chair of India Caucus, European Parliament), Siddarth Zarabi (Executive Editor, Business Television India) and Nitin Mantri (President, ICCO).

Bridge India team member Rohini Lakhani said of the event: “The event space in the UK-India corridor is a crowded one, but what is unique about Ideas For India is that it brings together senior stakeholders from business, policy, academia and elsewhere not just from the bilateral corridor and on one side of the political spectrum, but in a genuinely diverse manner to explore collaboration opportunities between Europe and India, as well as globally. Our big focus will be to debate and discuss the big ideas that could drive India’s growth both as an economy and nation over the coming decades.”

Speaker Nakul Saxena, Director of Public Policy at iSPIRT Foundation, said: “The nature of growth in India is changing. Capital and access to the internet has disrupted business models in India, creating a virtuous cycle of growth for many of India’s tech startups. As India rebrands itself and evolves as an economy, technology, innovation, data privacy and related topics will be at the heart of this growth. I’m delighted to be able to contribute to such ideas for India at this conference.”

Pushparaj Deshpande, Director of the Samruddha Bharat Foundation, said: “The Indian diaspora has risen to the top of their professions globally and can contribute significantly to India’s growth as an economy as well as a heterogeneous democracy. I look forward to engaging in this unique forum to bring together leaders from just from India but globally, in a unique, diverse yet intimate forum.”
