Postcards from Davos 2011: A moment for reflection
Kris Gopalakrishnan, CEO and Managing Director, Infosys Technologies Ltd.
Got news of the Padma Bhushan award while driving in from Zurich. I am thankful to the Government of India for this recognition. I thank all Infoscions and the Infosys leadership team for their support, without which I would not have received the honor.
This year, India is present in a big way at Davos. We probably have the largest contingent of representatives. The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) has scheduled an India Inclusive program. One of the themes is 'Inclusive Growth', and India's growth story is a good fit.
All of us have a packed agenda for the next four days - panel discussions, media interviews and networking meetings. Facilities at the event are good, making it easy to schedule and manage meetings. Davos Congress Center, the main venue, has been renovated and can easily accommodate a large gathering. I attended the welcome party and the mood of the participants is more positive than it was last year.
