Industry associations across the globe have played an active role in catalyzing development at the national, regional, and global levels. Business and industry associations through their vast memberships span business sectors throughout the world, offer in-depth understanding of industry-specific trends and have significant influence on business sustainability.
In today’s globalized world, rapid changes in technology, policy and markets are constantly creating new opportunities and challenges for industry. Further, in the current arrangement of global economic architecture, no issue is isolated. There are larger effects and interdependencies which require strategic and collective interventions to create a positive impact. Towards this, a collective role of industry associations and umbrella organisations (i.e. organisations representing multi-sectoral industry firms and associations) in navigating unpredictability will go a long way in crafting a shared understanding of roles and responsibilities of different development actors.
With this background and with the aim of further focusing on the role of industry associations in moulding industrial global growth and development and celebrating and recognizing the success and vital contribution of industry associations in the development of industry and country, Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), proposes to organize the first event “The Industry Associations’ Summit” with the theme – “Partners for Progress and Prosperity” on 26 March 2018 at Kamal Mahal, Hotel ITC Maurya, New Delhi.
