One sesion looks at FDI in Retail: A Key Enabler for Retail to reach its full Potential

Retail is an investment hungry sector where growth will be fuelled by an expansion of footprint and building of a more robust infrastructure to support this footprint. It is also a sector where several innovations from around the world can be adapted and executed to increase productivity. FDI can play a crucial role in providing the Indian retail sector with both the investment and access to know-how.

This session will provide the audience an opportunity to hear from the experts on the processes and techniques involved in achieving these goals. The panelists will share best practices on various tools available to retailers as a part of merchandising and pricing, and illustrate it with stories from their experiences.
