GBS’ Vision

GBS, or Global Business Summit, is a flagship initiative of the Times Group that envisions to bring together visionaries, thought leaders, heads of state, policy makers, academicians and corporate heads cohesively driving a singular agenda for Scripting Economic Change, by connecting the building blocks of Economics for India and the Globe.

About GBS

Launched on January 15, 2015, GBS seeks to provide solutions to key macroeconomic challenges being faced in the current context and put forth a blue print for sustainable, inclusive economic growth. GBS also serves as a platform for government to government interactions, business to government meetings, business to business engagements and helps corporates and governments secure investments by showcasing opportunities to apt audiences.

In its last two editions, GBS has successfully served as a platform that brings together visionary agents of change from across the globe to debate on issues involving ramifications on economic policies across the globe. The event has witnessed an envious collection of global leaders like Prof. Paul Krugman, Nobel Prize laureate & academic, Princeton University; Prof. Nouriel Roubini from New York University’s Stern School of Business; Prof. Jagdish Bhagwati, Economist, Professor of Economics and Law, Columbia University; Dominic Barton, Global MD, McKinsey & Co., Dennis Nally, Chairman, PricewaterhouseCoopers International and Nassim Nicholas Taleb, Scholar, Statistician and Risk Analyst, along with a whole host of leading Indian and global CEOs in the past editions.

The third edition of the Global Business Summit is set to offer fresh perspectives and solutions to a new set of new challenges. Themed ‘Conquering Uncertainty, Discovering Opportunities’, the latest edition of GBS is all set to see world and national leaders coalesce and deliberate on issues relevant to India and the world as a whole. Eminent minds of our time will discuss the manner in which we can catalyse the world economy through discussions focussing on navigating the new abnormal plus other critical mandates centered on achieving growth through re-modelling of economic reforms. In addition, there will be riveting conversations revolving around transformations, upturns and varied impacts of events that have happened across the globe. Over the two-day conference, global experts will also ponder over the most pressing issues facing the global economy—Post Trump America, Brexit fallout, fate of Eurozone, China slowdown and also the steps needed to deal with surprises and shocks of 2017.

With international participation expected to double over GBS 2016, this two day marquee event will again bring together the most influential global thought-leaders and CEOs and of course, the who’s who of Indian government and industry, who are integral to the success of the Summit.

In our connected world, the futures of economies are becoming increasingly inter-dependent. Thus the ripple effect of events such as Brexit and fears of protectionism in developed economies can be felt in the furthest corner of the globe. In this challenge lies an opportunity for India to project itself as a safe haven for investment.

As the world’s largest growing major economy, India is poised to be at the vanguard of economic change and script the context of future business conversations. An ambitious raft of policy reforms continues to power the growth of the Indian economy even as other big economies are in the throes of a spell of low growth. With India giving an impetus to the global economy, it is only fitting that the world’s business and political leaders will converge here at The 3rd edition of The Economic Times Global Business Summit to deliberate on the challenges faced by the global community.
