26th World Investment Conference Opening Ceremony

Opening Remarks | #WIC22


Mr. Deepak Bagla, MD & CEO, Invest India, WAIPA President

 “I am sure we can do a lot more, but it has to be done with a lot less. And that to my mind, is the core and the crux of the New World which is now being shaped going forward. Digitisation is the absolute core of the new world border.”: Mr. Deepak Bagla, MD & CEO, Invest India, WAIPA President


Some other excerpts from the talk:

  1. The time to redefine the role of IPAs is here as the world faces new challenges. Earlier, IPAs were looked only as the voice of investors but now it must become the voice of government tool, of the policy maker, and the voice of every individual across the country to build a collective voice. It no longer is the role of IPAs but also their responsibility for a better tomorrow.
  2. It’s about transparency, equity, and access to opportunity. And this is central to what WAIPA wishes to accomplish and is the most important pillar for us as we dive into the next 36-48 months. Digitisation is a solution which serves as a combined package of scale, pace, and speed. It is an imperative. And this is what we want to work on together, as a family.
