Global Services Conclave

Global Services Conclave 2021 – India Serves: Exploring Potential Growth Sectors Beyond IT/ITes

Global Services Conclave 2021
“India Serves: Exploring Potential Growth Sectors Beyond IT/ITes”
10.00 AM-4.30 PM, Tuesday, 9th November 2021
New Delhi, Delhi 110021

The service sector has invited considerable interest among policymakers for its larger contribution to global output, contributing almost more than three-fifths of global GDP and about half of the employment opportunities across the world.

India’s service sector is no exception to the global service composition as its share is over 60 per cent of the national output. India has emerged as a global hub for the supply of various services, and today India exports over $200 billion of services annually, which contribute to 7% of India’s GDP. Services account for 54 per cent of India’s Gross Value Added (GVA) and account for more than 40 per cent of India’s total global exports. Services exports lead directly to the employment of approximately 2.6 crores people in India while leading to indirect employment as well.

Despite the pandemic, the sector has shown immense resilience and services exports stood at $ 206 billion in 2020-21 showing a decline of only 3 per cent. Throughout the decade (2010 to 2021) the CAGR of the services sector has been 6%. Based on trends and present performance of the sector SEPC has projected a target of $250 bn for services exports in the FY 2021-22 and a target of US$ 1 trillion including IT and ITES by 2030 as suggested by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India.

In the above context, SEPC is organising its first Global Services Conclave on 9th Nov 2021 which will be an annual feature of SEPC henceforth.

The Conclave will focus on deliberations and discussions to create a roadmap to achieve the projected target. While there will be talks on key service sectors, the focus will be on capacity building, enhancing competitiveness, MSME support, creating jobs, policy recommendations and more.

Looking forward to your participation as our distinguished Sponsor for this prestigious event. Please find attached the presentation on Sponsorship.
