Petraeus (KKR Global Institute ex-CIA Director), and Isha Foundation founder Sadhguru are also part of the star-studded line-up.


In keeping with the #FutureNow central theme, the sessions of the forum have been broadly divided across the sessions including climate action, digital future, global business, economic recovery, health & health-tech, securing supply chains, and global leadership.

A series of power-packed sessions will cover every aspect of India’s ubiquitous role in ensuring the 'build back better' goals of the world’s leading economies are in harmony with India’s growth ambitions.


London headquartered India Inc Group, founder and CEO, Manoj Ladwa said, "This year’s India Global Forum brings with it a sense of urgency and impatience about the radical actions needed now to shape a post-pandemic World. It is where the big global issues of climate change, economic recovery, and opportunity, digital transformation, and tackling new age imperialist and fundamentalist threats get debated."

“This is the biggest and most impactful gathering on India’s globalisation anywhere in the World. It is where the enterprise of a business leader meets the power of a politician; the curiosity of a scientist meets the ingenuity of an engineer; the wisdom of experience meets the impatience of ambition. It is quite simply where India meets the world, and the world meets India. We are therefore thrilled by this partnership with Republic TV in India that will take the ideas and ambitions of the Forum to the widest possible audience,” he said.

"At Republic, we see great potential in the coming together of two great democracies: the UK and India. We believe that with an exchange of ideas and collaboration of minds, this transformative relationship has a game-changing future," MD and editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami said, whose Republic TV is the exclusive broadcast partner for IGF in India. "The purpose is to come together to ideate at this global forum on common geo-strategic, geo-political and economic interests. The level of discourse, the profile of the panels, and the global outlook of this forum is going to make it a remarkable event."
