About event:

Webinar: Overview of the Indian infrastructure sector in COVID times.

The outbreak of COVID-19 across the world and resultant lockdowns in several countries is unparalleled. It has cast its shadow across various economic activities with dislocation in global production, supply chains and trade. As business during COVID-19 looks like an unchartered territory, every stakeholder is grappling with the ever-developing response mechanism.

Infrastructure has always been the key growth driver for India, given its need, possible quantum & number of projects and the far-fetched impact it can create on all sectors quickly (both directly and indirectly). India is not only looking forward to getting back its shine in terms of GDP growth but also doing so rapidly with aggressive reforms in the key strategic sectors. This may prove to be a prologue of a massive opportunity that infrastructure sector may witness in India.

Austrade in partnership with Vision360 Management Consulting India is organising a series of webinars on exploring opportunities in the Indian infrastructure sector amidst COVID-19 pandemic. The webinars will provide insights on impact of COVID-19 in Indian infrastructure sector and how it can translate into possible business opportunities for Australian organisations.

India has a requirement of investment worth INR 50 trillion (US$ 777.73 billion) in infrastructure by 2022 to have sustainable development in the country and is witnessing significant interest from international investors in the infrastructure space. The discussion points are as follows:

  1. Impact of COVID-19 on the Indian economy & infrastructure sector;
  2. Entry models and strategies (especially for international players);
  3. Decoding the national infrastructure pipeline – pre & post COVID-19
    1. Sector - wise investments by 2025
    2. Risk in NIP
    3. Soon-to-be-released logistics policy;
