If there is one mandate that the ruling BJP government has seriously adhered to ever since being voted to power, it is that of making India a business-friendly destination. In keeping with this vision, the government has kick-started ambitious initiatives such as Make in India, Invest in India, Start-up India, and so on. Coupled with enabling government policies and a bustling private sector, these programs have started yielding benefits in the form of increased investor confidence, increased FDI and FII, and a situation where overseas investors are no longer wary of investing in India as they once were. While a lot needs to be done not only in terms of encouraging more foreign investment into India but also in terms of hand-holding and nurturing foreign investors who have already invested here, there is no denying that the tide is changing in favor of India as a global investment destination.

Legal Era Magazine, a frontrunner in the legal sector in India and abroad, has in the past partnered with the Government of India and continues to do so to espouse the cause of “Invest in India”. As part of this larger objective, the magazine is organizing the Legal Era Conclave 2018, which is based on the theme EAST MEETS WEST: UNDERSTAND THE EMERGING MARKETS, GROUND REALITIES, OPPORTUNITIES & PATH AHEAD, on May 24 and 25, 2018 in the world’s financial capital, New York. For all those desirous of investing in India, the two-day Conclave will discuss in depth topics such as the Indian market, growth drivers, regulatory regime, tax network, challenges and opportunities when heading from West to East, partnering with Indian lawyers to help make the right decisions, net neutrality, artificial intelligence, compliance, data privacy regime, and so on.

The Conclave will provide a platform for investors, lawyers, and corporate counsel from both countries to come together and discuss opportunities on both sides of the fence. At a time when the world is eyeing India, the Conclave will provide a sneak peek into the dynamics of India, its culture, what investing here entails, laws, ground realities, the government’s progressive vision, pain points, and so on.
