Dear Mr/ Mrs,
It gives me immense pleasure to inform you that Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) with the support of the Ministry Commerce and Industry and Services Export Promotion Council (SEPC) is organising the Services Conclave: Serve India and the World on 19th December in Delhi.
The Services Sector is emerging across the world as an enabler of economic growth and inclusion. The sector contributes almost one third of the gross value added, half of the world employment, one fifth of global trade and more than half of the world FDI flows.
In India, the contribution of the Services Sector has grown to more than half of the country’s output today, from 30 per cent of GDP in 1950, contributing 62 per cent of the gross value addition with the growth of 7.7 per cent in 2016-17. This fast emergence has thrown open huge opportunities and challenges for the sector.
Hon’ble Minister of Commerce & Industry, Shri Suresh Prabhu has agreed to deliver the Inaugural Address at the conclave on the 19th of December.
The Conclave will be attended by Policy Makers, Industry Captains, Academicians and other Stakeholders. The conclave will also address on“How IT and ICT is catalyzing growth through Digital Platforms and Sports as an emerging subsector which will drive growth, development and inclusion”.
