CNN Asia Business Forum 2017

Monday, 13 February 2017, 6:00PM


200 business leaders will gather to assess India’s position in a turbulent global economy

CNN Asia Business Forum is back for its second year in India. In a year that seems destined to be filled with historic moments and political transformations, India is likely to remain a rare spot of stability and promise in the world.

At this year's Forum, we shine the spotlight on two key industries: aviation and technology. Both sectors seem destined to boom in India in the coming years. As Indians get richer they will certainly be flying more, and they're increasingly likely to buy their tickets on their smartphones.

Headlining the CNN Asia Business Forum 2017 will be the Honourable Civil Aviation Minister Government of India Shri P. Ashok Gajapathi Raju in an exclusive one-to-one conversation with CNN's foremost international business correspondent Richard Quest. Following which, Richard Quest and Kristie Lu Stout will moderate two high-powered and thought-provoking panels on aviation and technology respectively. Also on stage this year, a very special and inspiring speaker to give us something to think about when it comes to resilience and bouncing back: CNN's 'SuperHero' Pushpa Basnet.

Join us for an incredible evening of intriguing discussion and shared insights.
