CNN International to turn its ‘Eye on India’ from 14 March

MUMBAI: Starting 14 March, CNN International will focus on Indian business, in order to bring global viewers a week of in-depth business coverage live from Mumbai and around the country.

The week with a special focus – ‘Eye On India’ – will see live programming centers around ‘World Business Today‘. Business specialist Andrew Stevens and CNN‘s team of India correspondents will profile the players, companies and trends contributing to the country‘s economic growth.

Eye on India will also feature a special edition of Talk Asia in front of a live audience with Indian business icon Kumar Mangalam Birla, chairman of the Aditya Birla Group.

A dedicated site,, has additional reports, special features and more information about the week of programming.
  As an additional aspect of Eye on India, CNN is also inviting its global audience, especially those in India, to participate by sharing their views on everything that is ‘Uniquely India‘. Selected submissions will feature on and across the weeks’ programming.

"These are exciting times for Indian business and industry as the country‘s performance on the global economic stage make it an obvious choice for our week of business-focused programming. Eye on India promises our global viewers smart, insightful and surprising reporting from this hugely compelling destination" said CNN International VP of coverage and feature programming Mike McCarthy.

Stories airing through the week include a look at how a rapidly increasing demand for luxury in segments including apparel, automobiles, retail and real estate, due to India‘s increasing number of millionaires, juxtaposes sharply with parts of the country that still lack basic infrastructure. Away from metropolitan India, the emergence of smaller towns as growth and consumption drivers are profiled.

Seen by some as a ‘model state‘, a visit to Gujarat suggests how India can maximise its economic potential, while a pioneering cardiac surgeon reveals how he provides world class medical care for the masses at minimal cost.

Eye On India will take viewers on journeys to different countries around the world, exploring the new, revealing the surprising and uncovering the unknown aspects of compelling destinations.
