KOCHI(TIP): An annual jamboree, the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas brings together a thousand to a thousand five hundred persons of Indian origin from across the world together for three days. It is an interactive event which affords a wonderful opportunity to network. The government at the center and the state governments and the PIOs from across the world get together to define their role and contribution to the development of India and the personal growth of entrepreneurs.
PBD 2013 dealt with growth.The theme was: “Engaging Diaspora: The Indian Growth Story”. We carried reports of some interactive sessions in our last issue. However, not all could be covered. We do realize that we should carry the in depth reporting and analysis of various sessions held at Kochi and we will do so in the coming weeks, focusing on one session in each issue.
