After a few years of witnessing significant growth the Indian economy witnessed a few years of sluggish performance far below its potential. The reasons for subdued performance are many and varied. However, in the recent past some green shoots of recovery are in evidence. The country also appears to have entered into a decision making mode in which substantive and procedural obstacles to growth and development are likely to be overcome, sooner rather than later.

How are CFOs expected to respond to this challenge? This is sought to be addressed by way of closed door, free-flowing discussions among experienced CFOs, with no media presence.
