India Makes A Splash At Davos

Filed under: Business — Prashant @ 5:13 am

India is one of the eight sub-themes at this year’s World Economic Forum in Davos, with the tag line, India Everywhere.

…Indian speakers will be featured in 60 of the conference’s 300 sessions. To put its best face forward, India has assembled a 115-strong delegation. That’s nearly four times the size of the Indian contingent at Davos in 2005 and enormous compared to China’s 30 delegates.

No one from IEB is part of the 115 member team, alas. Wonder if our invitation’s lost in the mail… ;-) Well, that puts paid to any hopes of live blogging.

Update 1: More on this from the New York Times and Market Watch

Update 2:


  1. The could explain why Chinese didn’t need to send so many people to Davos. They only need to wait at home!

  3. Spring Festival(Chinese New Year) falls on Jan 29th. Hu and Wen probably decided that CNY is more important than Davos.

  4. The same week as the india everywhere campaign i saw abc’s nightline (a us nightly news show of sort) had mushsharraf being interviewd at davos by cynthia mcfadden.
    No mention of india. So much for the splash, a tidbid here in the times and some stuff elsewhere but no substance behind it.
    Good timing mushie.
