    The adequacy of infrastructure helps determine one country's success and for any growing economy its infrastructure is a matter of pride. To achieve the vision of a developed nation in the coming decades, the Infrastructure sector indeed holds the key for an augmented & speedy revival of the nation's GDP.

    At the 3rd Annual Infra Focus Summit eminent leaders of the Private sector, financial institutions, Government officials and policy makers derive to conclusions via in-depth dialogue and explore the required equilibrium for development.

    Few leading names that will be present at the 3rd edition are Shri Suresh Prabhu, Hon'ble Minister of Railways, Govt. of India; Arun Lakhani, CMD, Vishvaraj Infrastructure; Hemant Kanoria, CMD, SREI Infrastructure Finance; LalitJalan, Group Director, Strategy, & Corporate Affairs, Reliance Group; Dr. Rajiv Lall, Chairman, IDFC; Rakesh Markhedkar, President, Bajaj Electricals; Vijay Karia, CMD, Ravin Group of Companies

    From roadways, railways to airports and other smart-city initiatives, the last few years have witnessed a phenomenal change in the sector. And with the rampant growth and highly-concentrated demographic growth in cities, the infrastructure is growing more outdated thus forcing the Government to take corrective actions as rapid population in urban areas is pushing already inadequate infrastructure further beyond its capacity. This indication of significant challenges requires a crucial address that will be initiated at the Infra Focus summit, which brings together all stakeholders on a shared platform to discuss optimal solutions.

    Be part of the change with the decisionmakers at the Economic Times 3rd Annual Infra Focus, a leadership convention.
