Union Minister Piyush Goyal will lead team India at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos from 23-25 May 2022, said the Ministry of Commerce and Industry on Friday. 

The Indian government delegation would include ministers like Mansukhlal Mandaviya, and Hardeep Singh Puri besides chief ministers and senior ministers of Madhya Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Karnataka and Telangana along with senior officials.

A number of senior industry leaders including Hari S. Bhartiya, Amit Kalyani, Rajan Bharti Mittal, Ronnie Screwvala and Salil S. Parekh would also be participating in the WEF deliberations. 

This event would further help reinforce India’s position as an important and relevant stakeholder in shaping the global narrative, particularly as India assumes the presidency of the G-20 in 2023, it said. 

"The WEF will also be a platform to project India as an attractive investment destination in view of its robust economic growth and stable macroeconomic indicators," according to the ministry. 

Ahead of the Davos visit, Goyal held a pre-departure briefing session with the entire India delegation on Friday, consisting of the central and state government ministers and officials as well as representatives from the Indian industry. 

Goyal will also be visiting the United Kingdom (UK) on 26-27 May 2022 to hold discussions with the UK government and businesses on the progress made in FTA negotiations and the way forward.
