India on the rise: Funding the infrastructure build

3rd November, 2015, Crystal Ballroom, Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, Mumbai


A key pillar of India’s growth story is the development of its infrastructure. However, given the truly vast scale of this mega project, India’s infrastructure build brings with it some major challenges and requirements and hence there is a need to explore the possibility to partner with relevant entities from across the West-East Corridor.

Given NBAD’s unique positioning within this corridor, the bank is ideally placed to facilitate partnerships between India and other entities from MENA and Asian countries. As part of this initiative, NBAD is proud to host a panel discussion on 3rd November entitled “India on the rise: Funding the infrastructure build”. 

Participants in this discussion will be as follows:

  1. Ms Zia Mody, Managing & Founding Partner – AZB
  2. Mr S Rao, Joint Managing Director and Group CFO – JSW Steel Limited
  3. Mr Alex Thursby, Group CEO – NBAD

Given the different perspectives on the infrastructure story represented by the panelists we are looking forward to a very vibrant, relevant and frank discussion about the development of the country’s infrastructure in the broader context of the India growth story.
