Roundtable: Business Meets Governance at G-20 - I
Kris Gopalakrishnan, CEO and Managing Director, Infosys Technologies Ltd.
The Korean government needs to be congratulated for organizing a business summit alongside the G-20 Summit. As our experience suggests, significant progress can be achieved if the business community works closely with the government to generate jobs and create wealth.
The participation at the Summit is global, with representatives from most continents. Expectedly, Asia has a large presence.
The consensus is that the Summit will strengthen economic recovery by sustaining the coordinated efforts in stimulating growth and creating jobs. The working groups have put together preliminary reports. After tomorrow's discussions, we will present the final recommendations to the G-20 Heads of State. We look forward to our recommendations being taken forward and supported by governments.
It is encouraging to know that business summits will be organized at the G-20 Summits in France and Mexico.
