New Delhi : The AsiaOne Media Group hosted the 21st Asian Business & Social Forum and The Healthier India Conclave at The Grand Hotel in Vasant Kunj, New Delhi. Today, Asia and India take centre stage as the home of some of the world’s fastest expanding major economies, providing limitless economic and entrepreneurial prospects both locally and globally in a post-COVID world. As an Excellence Platform, the Forum provided endless prospects for corporate cooperation in terms of investment, joint ventures, and expansions, and has become enormously significant for the investigation of economic opportunities for those who believe in adopting excellence in their organisations.

“Sustainability for Global Peace, Prosperity, and Progress” was the topic of the Asian Business and Social Forum’s 21st edition, which commemorated India’s G20 presidency. This is consistent with India’s G20 theme of ‘One Earth, One Family, One Future’, which aims to promote a worldwide feeling of oneness. The ideology of ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ (which means The World is One Family) is deeply rooted in Indian culture and promotes worldwide harmony in order to create a better, more inclusive, and peaceful world for everyone.

AsiaOne convened commercial and social leaders, as well as diplomats, from participating nations and beyond to discuss methods to collaboratively march towards a more sustainable future.

The Conclave for a Healthier India in 2023

Healthcare and wellness are the most important areas for a country since their prosperity is closely related to the well-being of their inhabitants. To chart a framework for a Healthier India, the Healthier India Conclave brought together government officials, leaders from the Healthcare and Wellness industries, related international and national organisations, key stakeholders, decision-makers, non-profit organisations, community leaders, innovators, and technology providers. Stalwarts from various healthcare and wellness segments took the stage to address the requirements for achieving national health and to dwell on strategic and technology-driven solutions to the challenges our country is facing today in securing our nation’s overall health and wellbeing.

Mr. Rajat Raj Shukal, Global Head and Principal Partner, AsiaOne Media Group, welcomed the Hon’ble Ministers, Ambassadors, and distinguished business and social figures in attendance.

The Hon’ble Minister of State for Defence and Tourism, Shri Ajay Bhatt threw open the summit by lighting the lamp along with Mr. Rajat Raj Shukal and the other dignitaries present at the Forum namely Smt. Tara Gandhi Bhattacharjee, Dr. Satya Vadlamani, H.E. Dr. Christina Rahm and Dr. JC Chaudhry.

Shri Ajay Bhatt congratulated the Asian Business & Social Forum for celebrating India’s G20 Presidency. He was all praises for India’s G20 presidency wherein the nation transformed it into a nationwide festival, reaching every city and leaving no stone unturned to achieve its objectives. “Embracing the spirit of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam, we inclusively engaged with everyone. A pivotal factor contributing to our success was the leadership of our Honorable Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, who has risen to become an undisputed world leader,” he said.

The Hon’ble Minister of State for Health and Family Welfare, Prof. SP Singh Baghel applauded The Healthier India Conclave 2023 and the brands and leaders recognized at the Summit. He emphasized upon the challenges these brands and leaders face in earning these awards. “With a population of 1.4 billion, the number of people winning Padma Awards in India is relatively low. This is why awards presented by esteemed organizations like AsiaOne play a crucial role in recognizing truly deserving individuals from all walks of life,” he emphasized.

Dr. Satya Vadlamani, Chairperson, Murli Krishna Pharma Pvt. Ltd. talked about the advancements in the nation’s Science, and Technology, and Healthcare and Pharma sectors. She asserted, “Today, we are all in a situation where at the end of G20, everybody is aware of India’s growing clout. There was no great innovation happening post 2000s. But today when you look at India and the world, maximum development has happened here and we are proud in our own way to be a small part of this drug delivery system of the world.”

Talking about the interconnectedness of the world, H.E. Dr. Christina Rahm, Founder, DRC Ventures, said, “I’ve worked in 88 countries, trying to bring together solutions for the world. See, we’re all connected. Whether we’re a scientist or a fashion designer or a mother or just someone that is a father that has a child, we’re all connected. We’re connected to a leaf on a tree. We’re connected to animals. Energetically, everything that happens to us touches others throughout the world.”

One of the prominent healthcare brands recognized at the Summit is Murali Krishna Pharma Pvt. Ltd. (MKPPL) – a novel drug delivery systems company in Maharashtra, India. Established in 2004, it is a reputable and dynamic Drug Delivery Systems (DDS) organization that provides solutions to optimize the delivery of pharmaceutical products. Its manufacturing facility is approved by the European Union and has GMP Compliance from WHO. It has revolutionized the Indian pharma landscape, positively impacting countless lives.

Another significant wellness brand recognized at the summit was ‘The Root Brands’ under DRC Ventures, which was established to cultivate a collaborative environment that transcends geographical and cultural boundaries.
