India Banking Conclave (IBC) 2018 was held in New Delhi from 23-24, 2018. It was organised by the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) along with its knowledge partner and government Think Tank, NITI Aayog. The conclave was aimed at making India’s banking sector more adaptable to face multiple future challenges in the coming years.
IBC 2018 aimed to serve as an effective platform for varied stakeholders connected to India’s banking and financial sectors. It also seeks to act as a bridge between government and key stakeholders and synergize to reinvigorate India’s banking and financial sectors as many believe that a healthy, effectively running banking system can only revive India’s investment cycle and support the country’s growth story. IBC 2018 focused engaging corporates, law and policy makers of country, academicians and professionals on a common platform to make all stakeholders share their views on all impending issues including bad debts and non-performing assets (NPAs) that have been accumulated in an unbiased manner.
