CUTS International with support from the US Embassy, New Delhi and in partnership with CII, is hosting organizing the Symposium.

In a release, CUTS International said, “States in India, in the last couple of years, have undertaken multiple reforms to facilitate ease of doing business. The reforms have been buoyed by the annual ranking by the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP).”

The ranking has ushered a sense of competitiveness amongst the states. The idea is to bring reforms at the state level in order to become a global competitor in ease of doing business.

Thus, the Symposium will bring together relevant stakeholders (80-100) from various backgrounds on one platform to discuss good practices and challenges pertaining to Ease of Doing Business.

The idea is to have state and non-state actors deliberate on the way forward for sustainable and inclusive Ease of Doing Business, the release added.

The Symposium is divided into five knowledge sessions covering issues pertaining to Competitiveness & Economic Development; Ease of Doing Business; focus on issues pertaining to MSME’s and  job creation; Skills Development initiatives and Role of Government in implementation of reforms. (KNN Bureau)
