CfPs: Asia Competitiveness Forum 2012; April 26-27; New Delhi

Asia Competitiveness Forum 2012
New Delhi, India
April 26-27, 2012

Theme: Competitiveness - Economic Development, Prosperity and Creating Shared Value

Capitalism is an idea that has stood the test of time, but along the way it has changed dramatically. It is an idea which has not changed continuously but in a series of discontinuous leaps. We are in the midst of one such discontinuous transition wherein the world economies are grappling with slow down and reconfiguration. The world economy would be driven by the growth of Asia.
The challenge for tomorrow would be to look at Economic Development that is just, humane and inclusive. The idea that would be driving the world tomorrow would be creating shared value.
