Since independence, Central and State Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) have played a major role for all round economic and social development of the country. PSUs have been the frontrunners in supporting the Government by providing necessary industrial and financial assistance for India’s growth. Further, key sectors like Petroleum (Refinery & Marketing), Coal, Crude Oil, Steel and Electricity (Power Generation, Transmission and Distribution) have contributed immensely for the country’s GDP growth.

Recognizing the key role played by Central and State PSUs, and various Government Ministries, Dun & Bradstreet is pleased to organize the grand summit ‘PSU and Government Summit 2023’ in October 2023. The summit will feature keynote addresses by several eminent dignitaries, including representatives from the Government, its ministries, industry veterans, and other thought leaders. The summit will also feature the presentation of PSU Awards 2023 across several categories, panel discussion on the topic ‘Gearing for Amrit kaal’ along with the launch of the most acknowledged publication ‘India’s Top PSUs 2023’.

The summit will be attended by dignitaries from the Government of India, its Ministries, departments, and allied agencies, CXOs and other senior representatives of Central and State Public Sector Enterprises, Public Sector banks and financial institutions, and consultancy firms among others. The summit will serve as a great platform to gain useful insights from thought leaders and business leaders.

Theme: Gearing for Amrit kaal

The government vision for ‘Amrit kaal’ includes technology driven and knowledge-based economy with strong public finances and a robust financial sector. The agenda for achieving this vision focuses on facilitating opportunities for citizens, impetus to growth and job creation and strengthening macro-economic stability. To build a more resilient and future-ready economy, Indian PSUs play a critical role in strengthening the economy by focusing on transforming it through modernizing systems, processes, and approaches.
