The Wharton India Economic Forum (WIEF) is an annual student-run India-centric conference hosted by the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. Since its inception 18 years ago, WIEF is one of the largest and most prestigious India-focused business conferences and provides a platform for thought leaders to discuss the opportunities present to India and the challenges that need to be addressed.
The theme of this year's conference is ‘India: Time to Reboot’. With general elections to be held in May 2014, India has been given the perfect opportunity to make a fresh start. This year’s conference aims to reflect carefully on the past decade to pinpoint India’s key success factors and areas for political and economic improvement. Showcasing 6 panels, one dedicated to this theme, WIEF strives to be a forum for delegates to reassess India’s economic growth trajectory, re-evaluate its regulatory landscape and draw up an action plan to ensure the country meets its full potential over the coming years.
