The eighth phase of India’s marathon general election began this week, and with over 814 million eligible voters it is the largest democratic exercise in history. Some speculate the country will become the third largest economy in the world over the next few decades, but the new leader – to be announced on May 16th – with the future of India in his hands, will face huge challenges to keep it on the right track.

How can trust be restored in India’s fractured politics? What policies can stimulate business, attract foreign investment and reignite its faltering growth? How will India face up to the geopolitical challenges of tension in the AfPak region and a China vying for regional dominance?

We’re pleased to introduce six expert speakers on the future of India, the impact of the election, and how it will shape India in the years to come.
