‘VISION’ Conclaves for CEOs and “UDAAN” Members of the Indian Machine Tool Industry have been the apt forum for a discussions connected to its future; amidst a leisurely and picturesque environment.

‘VISION’ Symposium was inaugurated by Mr. Vinayak Chatterjee, Chairman National Council on Infrastructure, CII, who gave an extensive elaboration about recent public policy interventions in Indian infrastructure along with the interventions framework.
