GV Prasad
"Make life easy for genuine businesses and eliminate crony capitalism"

"At a time when the rest of the world seems to be thinking more positively about India than many in India, it may be a good time to leverage this and create a conducive climate for local Indian industry to invest more aggressively. An increased pace of investment is critical for India given that its long term growth story is still intact"
Pradeep Dhobale, executive director, ITC

Vishal Bali
"India must resolve to leave politics behind in its pursuit of economic growth. We have to reclaim our position amongst the top three fastest growing economies of the world"

Kamal K Sharma, Managing Director, Lupin
