Vishesh ChandiokI am delighted to introduce myself as one of the recently appointed Council Members representing India. It’s great to have the opportunity to join council, learn more about the governance of the Institute as well as the emerging issues for our profession. India is already a $3.5tn economy, just bigger than the UK, and expected to become a $35tn economy by 2047, it's 100th anniversary of independence. I do hope we can start to leverage the immense resources of the Institute in India, particularly to help the fast growing space of over 1,500 Global Capability Centres of most major and middle market corporations.
