Description

India Unlimited in association with Embassy of India is very pleased to invite you to the India Sweden Business Day on the 12th of November at Epicenter. India Sweden Business Day is produced in partnership with Swedish India Business Council, Confederation of Indian Industry, Business Sweden, Stockholm Chamber of Commerce and Swedish Chamber of Commerce in India.

India is expected to be the third-largest economy by 2025. Powering that growth is the trend toward urbanization, which is going to increase consumption power, as well as economic leverage. With high growth, India will need to find Innovative technological solutions to help solve issues connected with creating sustainable environments. India’s manufacturing infrastructure and capacity for innovation is poised for phenomenal growth: new smart cities and industrial clusters, being developed in identified industrial corridors having connectivity, new youth-focused programs and institutions dedicated to developing specialized skills, start-ups and Innovation.

The world is at the beginning of a revolution where there are huge advances in genomics, artificial intelligence, materials and manufacturing technologies. Machines are closing in on human ability with astonishing speed. Sweden is called the world’s most modern country and Swedish companies are strong in Innovation and in R& D and have their competencies when it comes to technology relating to AI, improving air and water qualities, connectivity, transportation, sustainability, retail spaces and smart-living and smart cities.

We want to connect the needs and demands of India with Innovation that helps create Sustainable development. We will look at Technology and its potential to harness change in India by looking at the impact Sustainable Technology and Innovation can make. How can Technology and Innovation help India achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Paris Climate Agreement goals while looking for growth? Can Innovation and technology help it in its path? Can Swedish companies play a role here?

Come and dwell into these and other interesting insights into opportunities between Sweden and India.
