Shri Anand Sharma, Hon’ble Union Minister for Commerce and Industry presented the key note address for the Awards followed by a panel discussion, How can Banks Engineer Boom in an Environment of Gloom?, where Mr. Kapoor participated as a panelist amongst other eminent bankers. Mr. Kapoor emphasized, “I fully concur with the RBI Governor’s statement that the ‘Gloom’ and ‘Doom’ view on India is overdone. Recent policy reforms and regulatory measures being undertaken will accelerate India’s economic recovery. We need to first ‘Believe in India’ and identify opportunities in adversity, for the world to do the same. In this challenging economic scenario, Banks have a greater responsibility of proactively partnering with the RBI and the Government in transmitting and implementing their policy and reform measures which are focused on economic recovery.”
