The inaugural edition of “LEADS 2020 : Reimagine the World” is a 4-day global thought leadership initiative from FICCI, spanning the globe and curated as an engagement platform for insights into five fundamental questions that underlie the quest for global economic prosperity, which is inclusive and sustainable for well-being citizens. This year, the program shall be organised on a virtual platform from October 12-15, 2020 (Mon-Thus.).
The motivation for the programme arises from the fact that in an interdependent world, effective leadership and genuine commitment is imperative to encourage constructive policy debates, evolve a collaborative approach for achieving the vision of an abundant, ecologically balanced and prosperous world for our future generations. This FICCI initiative is also driven by the need to reaffirm economic solidarity across borders, with optimism for the future in these uncertain times.
FICCI LEADS is an endeavour to evolve a shared vision among global leaders, to reimagine economic growth founded on the pillars of open regionalism, self-reliance, economic resilience and multilateralism. Global business and political leaders are being invited to share their views on 21st century challenges and take a fresh look at global business value chains.
The idea of LEADS:
L - Leadership for global prosperity in the backdrop of disruption
E - Excellence in everything we do
A - Adaptability to these VUCA times
D - Diversity for inclusive growth fabric
S - Sustainability as a given for economic growth
FICCI LEADS 2020 will be a confluence of global leaders, influencers and opinion shapers across the world. It will facilitate round clock engagement taking into account time zone differences with East Asia, Central Asia, South Asia, ASEAN & Oceania, Europe, Africa, West Asia, Americas and the Pacific. The virtual event this year will be hosted and managed on a FICCI exclusive platform, specially designed, developed and created with all privacy and data security features.
The Regional Session focusing on ASEAN would be of particular interest for Indonesia as it would focus on sectors which have immense potential for collaboration between India and the region. The Session on Reimagining Technology Excellence for India and ASEAN will focus on the imperative for India and ASEAN to leverage cutting-edge technologies to take economic engagement to the next level.
Keeping the time zone difference in mind, the session has been timed accordingly.
