NEW DELHI: A 'FICCI-IIFA Global Business Forum' (GBF) is being organised on 24 and 25 April at Tampa Bay in Florida to coincide with the International Indian Film Academy Awards (IIFA).

The meet is being organised by the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) in partnership with Wizcraft and international business development agencies such as Enterprise Florida, Visit Tampa Bay and the Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corporation.

The meet is aimed at coinciding with the IIFA weekend from 23 to 26 April.





FICCI vice president Harshavaradhan Neotia will be leading a 20-member CEOs delegation to the US for the GBF which covers the economic and intellectual component of IIFA. The objective of the delegation is to focus on enhancing business between the two countries and pave way for resolution of trade and investment issues that have cropped up in the recent times.





The theme of the GBF is 'Indo-U.S. Partnership: A Catalyst for Economic Growth'. The first day of the event will focus on Indo-US commercial relations, with panels deliberating on the challenges and opportunities in Indo-US Commerce, Resource Efficiency and India-US Collaboration in Life Sciences - Safe & Affordable Healthcare.





The second day of the event will comprise sessions focusing on Opportunities in Tourism, Education and Skills Development, US-India Collaboration in the Services Sector, Opportunities in Sports Management, Girl Rising Project, Women Leaders - Shaping Tomorrow, Media and Entertainment. Leading business leaders from India and the US, along with eminent Indian-Americans, have been invited to participate as speakers in various sessions.





Globally acclaimed visionaries such as Dr. R K Pachauri, who spearheads the Nobel prize winning UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change; N R Narayanmurthy, co-founder and executive chairman of Infosys; Ajit Kumar, consul general of India, Atlanta and Congressman Gus Bilirakis, will be addressing the GBF this year.





Some of the prominent women leaders such as Nisha Desai Biswal, US assistant secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs; actor Priyanka Chopra, Shabana Azmi, and Renu Khator, president of University of Houston, will also address the forum.





Business leaders from global multinational corporations such as Syntel, Accenture India, Microsoft IT India, TATA Motors and L&T InfoTech, will share their perspectives on India-US economic engagement. These discussions are expected to help in taking forward the business agenda between India and the US by adding depth to the existing areas of cooperation and defining new emerging opportunities.





According to a FICCI spokesperson, the timing of this forum is apt as the new Indian government will be looking forward to greater cooperation with the US. The US-India strategic partnership has always been a priority for both the countries and FICCI has been playing its role in enhancing the engagement between the two nations with initiatives such as the GBF.

No takers for films sans merit or promotion

The drought continues despite a number of new films releasing. The thing is, the films released in last three weeks lacked in face value and promotion.
