NOW, NEXT & BEYOND
The world health crisis couldn’t have come at a worse time. Global economic slowdown combined with changing geopolitical landscapes and a global trend to retreat from multilateralism, is putting tremendous pressure on leaders, governments and business to focus on acting on the most pressing issues. After scripting extraordinary success for the last six years, in both its on-ground and virtual events, South Asia’s largest business and economic platform is transcending to maximise its impact.

In an effort to reach all the global economies of scale, The 7TH EDITION OF THE GLOBAL BUSINESS SUMMIT WILL ADOPT A TWIN-SUMMIT FORMAT BY BRINGING TOGETHER LEADERS FROM ACROSS THE GLOBE FOR IN-PERSON AS WELL AS VIRTUAL DIALOGUES.

The gathering of the world’s most influential thought and business leaders that deliberates upon the future of BUSINESS AND POLICY WILL NOW BE OPEN FOR MILLIONS TO ACCESS, contrary to previous editions where the audience was restricted to our venue in New Delhi.

FOLLOWING THE TRAUMA OF THE PANDEMIC, IN AN ERA ALREADY CHARACTERIZED BY LARGE SCALE TECHNOLOGICAL AND SOCIETAL DISRUPTION, THERE SEEMS TO BE AN UNPARALLELED RUSH TO GET BACK TO NORMALCY. GLOBAL ECONOMIC RECOVERY COUPLED WITH A 360 DEGREE CHANGE IN THE WAY BUSINESSES HAVE TRADITIONALLY BANKED ON OUR PLANET AND ITS RESOURCES, IS THE NEED OF THE HOUR.

The post-pandemic world and the “new normal” is here, but, how different is it from how things were before February 2020? As world leaders and organizations accelerate the path to perhaps one of the greatest recoveries in centuries, The Economic Times Global Business Summit intends to demystify four important pillars which will be the backbone of this great resurgence. Geo-politics, World Economy, Health & Sustainability and Rapid Digitization: That these four aspects are interconnected and dependent on each other is a given, but what do the torchbearers of global trade and captains of the post pandemic ship, DO NOW, to ensure that the Next and Beyond are better, more resilient, and sustainable, is the question that this edition of the Global Business Summit aims to answer.
FORTUNATELY, WE ARE SOON ENTERING A WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY TO NOT ONLY MAKE THINGS RIGHT BUT ALSO DETERMINE THE ROADMAP TO REACH OUR END-GOAL.

THIS YEAR’S GBS WILL ACT AS AN INITIATIVE THAT WILL OFFER INSIGHTS, HELP IN BUILDING A ROADMAP, FOR ALL THOSE WHO ARE AT THE HELM OF GEOPOLITICAL RELATIONS AND HOLD THE REINS OF NATIONAL ECONOMIES AND BUSINESSES.

The platform, drawing from the vision and vast expertise of the leaders will engage across countries and sectors, in an attempt to build a set of dimensions that will not only help to get economies back on track, but also focus on offsetting the social disruptions caused by the pandemic.
