One of the more influential challenges that India is today contended with is the need to improve its business climate, both in letter and spirit. The bureaucratic overdrive to repair the situation is fuelled by the latest World Bank rankings on one hand and the urgent need to support the ambitious national slogan-‘Make in India’, on the other. We are today fortunate to have a government which is willing to change. We have a government which has shown its intent to break out of the sloth and open to suggestions for change. It is now the onus on industry to present its agenda for change and to share with the government the practical problems that industries face on ground. The government today is looking for first hand precise information regarding the laws or the sections therein which are coming in the way as impediments to ease of doing business in India.

Against this backdrop, ASSOCHAM is organising National Conference on Ease of Doing Business with the theme of “Driving India @ 50 from 130” on 2nd November 2017 in Delhi. The conference would focus on the following broad aspects.
