Over the past few years, Indian economy has seen an enormous growth. One of the major reasons behind India’s boom is the young population of the country. With approximately 460 million of the country’s citizens below the age of 25 years, the country is emerging as a great world economy. While the youth is a definite asset, their productivity is limited by lack of mentoring. The youth today, needs guidance and shaping to cater to their need of developing business skills. As Deepak Lalwani, Director at London brokerage Astaire and Partners said, “The biggest challenge is education and skilling such a large, youthful population.”The National Stakeholders’ Summit is one such attempt at meeting the challenge. The theme, ‘Building a young and enterprising India,’ emphasizes on youth participation in improving the country’s economic trends. It allows the youth a chance at meeting great business leaders like Mr. Adi Godrej and Ms. Meera Sanyal.
These business leaders, all pioneers in their own field, show the leaders of tomorrow, the path to a successful India. India’s growth is controlled by its youth. Its tomorrow is determined by the decisions taken today. In order to take the right decisions for India’s economic future, the older generations of business leaders must come together to empower the young ones.
Often, we have doubts on the ideal approach to a successful business plan or its execution. We wonder whether experience is always of key importance, or whether skill and talent are the driving elements of success. The speakers provide answers and ideas on the kind of changes that must be implemented in order to create knowledgeable individuals.
India is changing, and so are its trends. A catalyst to this change, only translates to the beginning of a larger, more dramatic backing. The youth needs to be well-equipped when it comes to leading the country. The youth is the future; they must work to make it brighter.
