Dear Industry Member,
CII will be launching the book “India on our minds”, a collection of 50 essays by Singapore’s thought leaders from across different sectors of Singaporean society and polity.
The essays focus on India’s past, present and future encompassing a wide array of topics including the historical beginnings of India-Singapore relations, Amaravati, India-Singapore Comprehensive Economic Cooperation Agreement, India’s perception in Singapore, Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership, personal experiences of the writers among others.
With foreword written by Mr Goh Chok Tong, Singapore’s second Prime Minister and edited by Ambassador Tommy Koh, Ambassador at large, Ministry of Foreign affairs, Singapore, this publication is a candid reflection of India and India-Singapore relations by Singaporeans who believe in India’s potential and its subsequent rise as economic and geo-political powerhouse.
The book was launched in Singapore in the presence of Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, Minister Vivian Balakrishnan and other dignitaries.
Given the deep rooted and warm geo-political and economic relations between India and Singapore this book is a wonderful acknowledgement and testament to the critical importance of this partnership.
The book launch session would include special address by Ambassador Tommy Koh and a panel discussion chaired and led by Mr Tarun Das, Chairman, Institute of Economic Growth (IEG) and featuring Mr TV Narendran, President-Designate, CII and CEO & Managing Director of Tata Steel Limited; Mr Sanjiv Bajaj, Vice President, CII and Chairman and Managing Director of Bajaj Finserv Limited and Mr Chandrajit Banerjee, Director General, CII.
I am writing to request you to kindly block your diary and join us for this virtual launch of “India on our minds” on 17th February 2021 from 1130 – 1300 hrs.
Look forward to your confirmation please.
