NEW DELHI: A survey conducted as a run-up to the summit found that India’s competitiveness has increased over the last two years. The respondents felt India will remain a leader in software development and IT-enabled services. The survey also found that due to its performance at the Cancun WTO negotiations, the `Made in India’ brand emerged stronger than ever.

The survey also shows slow growth in Infrastructure which is an impediment in India’s overall growth and most respondents felt that the Government should continue with its disinvestments policy, especially in the oil sector.

The India Economic Forum is expected to be attended by over 400 delegates from 20 countries. The Summit will be co-chaired by Carol Bellamy, Executive Director, UNICEF; Henner Klein, Chief Executive Officer - Elect, A T Kearney, Rahul Bajaj, Chairman and Managing Director, Bajaj Auto Limited and N R Narayana Murthy, Chairman and Chief Mentor, Infosys Technologies.
