Introduction

#MintMobilityConclave
Connectivity is an important theme of the Indian government’s developmental model and this involves building emission free mobility solutions to leverage its multiplier effect on the Indian economy. With the Modi government articulating its vision to address new age mobility conundrums, the interest in the Indian economy continues unabated across sectors such as automobiles, railways, new metro rail services, inland waterways, ports and aviation.

India has emerged as a hotspot for international companies to bring in and develop fresh technologies, as these businesses look to diversify their supply chains and production lines out of China following the coronavirus pandemic. Multi-modal logistics hubs in the vicinity of dedicated freight corridors is also opening up large scale infrastructure play, in turn raising the pertinent issues of long-term financing and need for patient capital to meet the emerging needs of crucial physical infrastructure.

The government has also been trying to leverage roads, railways and waterways to bring India’s internal logistics costs down, which presently makes India’s exports uncompetitive vis-à-vis those of China and other developing economies. Interestingly, this comes at a time when India is developing a new playbook to become an integral part of global supply chains, with the country undergoing a massive energy transition that will undoubtedly impact its residents.

As part of Mint’s tradition of championing the Indian Dream, the Conclave will try to address these issues along with the modern solutions such as drones, electric vehicles (EVs), energy storage, Hyperloop, bullet trains, pod taxis and more.

Mint’s Mobility Conclave brings together leading minds working on the forefront of mobility. The event will see participation from top policy makers, industrialists, startup founders, public officials and Mint’s editorial leadership who will debate and discuss the future of mobility as seen from India.
