MUMBAI: BBC World News' flagship business discussion show Talking Business is in India this week for a special programme, the international news channel has announced.

Each week Talking Business brings together corporate leaders, global investors, top creatives, cutting-edge entrepreneurs and leading intellectuals to analyse current business issues and trends as well as discussing what is shaping the way we work, consume and live in the 21st century.

For this week's special, which will be broadcast from the Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS) in Mumbai, BBC business presenter Yogita Limaye will be joined by a panel to discuss India's skills gap, examining why, when a million people are coming into the Indian market place every month looking for work, employers say they are not able to find those with the skills they need.

The panel will include:

Vandan Shah, Managing Director of Sipra Engineers

Purvi Seth, Chief Executive of HR consultancy firm Shilputsi

Ninad Karpe, Chief Executive of Aptech - an IT training institute

Students from NMIMS will also join the discussion, which will cover different aspects of the skills gap such people looking for blue collar work.

Editor Simon Atkinson said, “Our business teams in Mumbai and Delhi work hard to tell the story of India's economy - across the BBC's business coverage on TV, radio and online and especially through our weekly programme India Business Report (IBR). So it's fantastic to bring an edition of BBC World News' flagship business talk show to India's financial capital. As presenter of IBR, Yogita's knowledge of the country's business world will mean she can really delve into the issues and encourage a lively debate. It's also great that by filming at NMIMS we will be able to hear what the potential business leaders of tomorrow think about the issues.”

Talking Business India will be broadcast on BBC World News on Friday, 30 October at 8 pm and repeated on Saturday 6 am and on Sunday at 6 pm.
