Addressing the International Advertising Association India Chapter’s Silver Jubilee Summit at Kochi on Thursday, Faris Abouhamad, IAA Chairman & Global President lauded the Indian economy and said it holds great promise in the next 3-4 years. “In three to four years, India could be among the top three advertising spenders in the world,” Abouhamad said, noting that global giants have suddenly started showing up in India and discovering India. 

“The Indian economy is leading the way,” he asserted, adding that India is also a great exporter of talent to the industry in all parts of the world.
