The second edition of “Tomorrow’s India Global Summit” will be held at Seoul, South Korea from 25-29 September. The bi-annual event is being organized by Global Social (India) Foundation, a New Delhi based non-profit. It aims to showcase India’s prowess across the world and act as a catalyst for forging ties in the fields of business, knowledge and culture, and will feature panel sessions, company showcase, industry tours, university visits, and several networking opportunities.

H.P. Singh, Managing Director & Founder, Tomorrow’s India said, “Now is the best time for Indian businesses to forge new partnerships with South Korea committing to provide $10 billion for infrastructure, smart cities, railways, power generation and other diversified projects in India. Under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership, India has already signed at least seven bilateral agreements with South Korea. We have elevated our bilateral ties to the level of a special strategic partnership, which opens up opportunities in electronics, steel, manufacturing, maritime, and R&D. Both countries have also made rapid strides in tax reforms and expediting port connectivity to ensure ease of doing business”

Yogesh Chopra, CEO of Global Social (India) Foundation adds, “Next month, India and South Korea are resuming negotiations to take the Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA) to the next level. Opportunities in education are equally immense with industry reports suggesting that India currently attracts merely 300 Korean students as compared to 50,000 Koreans studying in China. Both the countries have also signed an agreement on cooperation in audio-visual co-Production of films, animation and broadcasting programmes.”

Tomorrow’s India Singapore edition was attended by over 350 business leaders from Singapore, Australia, Korea and Japan along with 100 heads of Indian businesses. Some of the prominent people present at the event.
