USIBC Supports India - Exploring New Frontiers of Law and Technology Conference

Demonetization has resulted in the Indian economy shifting to a more digitized structure. As a result, the Indian technology industry is undergoing several changes along with strategies being adopted to grow revenues from such digitization. Global technology researcher “Gartner” has predicted that spending on information technology in the Indian IT industry would go up by nearly seven per cent to $72.4 billion in 2017. Although the introduction of new visa / immigration rules may create hurdles, it is also expected to provide opportunities for certain sectors.
 
Further, the Indian private, public and government sectors have been making use of digital technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing and virtual currencies in traditional strategic areas such as manufacturing and power, but are now well-poised to succeed in domains such as smart cities, healthcare, water, education and agriculture. This is due to the shift of the focus of the Indian economy to digitization and the proliferation of digital inclusion by the Indian government.
 
As a result several new legal and policy issues have emerged which need to be addressed with adequate legal and legislative steps.
 
Key questions that emerge: What are the developments being undertaken in furtherance of the digitization of the Indian economy, what are the key intellectual property and human capital issues in the technology sector with regard to setting up and operating captive units in India, and what are the emerging and innovative deal trends and structures for Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) in India?

Please join Nishith Desai Associates, along with India and US industry bodies for a seminar on Tuesday, 9th May, 2017 to highlight and share insights on the above issues. To register, please click here. For questions, please write to ndaconference(at)nishithdesai.com
