CNBC-TV18 to do a SWOT analysis of nation at the India Business Leader Awards 2007

The India Business Leader Awards 2007, organised by CNBC TV, will feature a debate titled ‘SWOT’ that would discuss and draw a complete diagnosis of India as a nation today. The event will take place in Mumbai on December 7, 2007.

The debate is being conducted on the premise that India stands poised on the verge of great things. It will address questions on whether India would become a global superpower or would it be undone by its own weaknesses? Moreover, the debate will bring together veterans and young businessmen for the first time on a common platform to chart out a complete diagnosis of India as a nation today.

The ‘SWOT’ debate will revolve around topics like democracy, the electoral system, contribution of agriculture to India’s growth, population, infrastructure and education.

One side of this debate will have experienced thought leaders and doyens of the Indian industry such as K V Kamath, Gurucharan Das, R Seshasayee and Ram Chandra Guha. The other side will have young leaders and denizens of New India – Jaideep Sahni, Vikram Akula, Milind Deora and Manvendra Singh. Selected members of the audience will also be given voting pads to cast their votes at the end of the interactive debate.

Ajay Chacko, Director, TV18 Business Media, said, “The SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats) is a simple and very common corporate tool used by executives to analyse strategic alternatives and undertake decision making. However, it will be interesting to see the same business community apply this to the economy and country as a whole. The simplicity of the SWOT format will ensure that the key enablers needed to engineer a progressive India in the next 60 years are clearly understood and the discussion itself will become more interactive and interesting.”
