The 3rd South Asian Diaspora Convention (SADC) will bring together 1000 distinguished guests and more than 50 of the region's leading policymakers and business leaders, academics and civil society leaders. The speakers will discuss and debate critical topics in business, economy and policy that would affect the region’s future and its role in global geopolitics in the 21st century.
According to the World Bank, South Asia is the fastest growing region in the world. Though India has a substantial share in the growth, other nations are also seeing significant GDP growth.
SADC 2016 will address critical questions relating to the geo-economic and geo-political challenges affecting South Asia and the world. What are the key engines of growth in South Asia at a time of global economic slowdown? To what extent is South Asia’s growth sustainable and what opportunities are there for both global corporates and small and medium enterprises to benefit from this growth? How can the regions’ economies further open up to international trade, investment, and finance and improve its prospects for the acquisition of modern technology. How will a more integrated and connected South Asian region expand the capacity of individual economies in the region? Will South Asia’s future be the world’s too? How is China’s growing presence in South Asia impacting business and trade in the region?
The South Asian diaspora attending SADC 2016 will benefit from the unique high impact networking and business opportunities to foster greater investment in the region. SADC 2016 will feature “Infrastructure Investments in South Asia” with several Chief Ministers from the region who will be available for interaction for potential investments. Special sessions on “Partnership in Education”, “Start-ups and Entrepreneurship”, “Business and Law”, “Smart Cities and Digital Governance” in the region will be featured at the Convention.
