Over the years, One Globe Forum has emerged as the bridge that connects global communities and local stakeholders interested in India and South Asia, from a broad array of fields like government, business, non-profit, defense forces and multilateral sectors. Over the past several months, our teams have put in great efforts in curating the speakers and themes relevant for this year and I am sure that the discussions over the next two days will spark brilliant dialogues that can catalyze intentions into effective actions.
