IOD Regional Summit is based on Tamil Nadu CM's statement “We want Tamil Nadu to be one of the best states in South Asia. Our government's target is to make Tamil Nadu a USD 1 trillion economy.” The state's current exports stand at USD 26 billion. Is it possible to achieve the goal in just nine years? Industrial climate prevailing in Tamil Nadu makes the state a lucrative destination for investors from all sectors. The goal can be achieved due to proactive measures being taken by the government. The industry has put its weight behind the government in ensuring that the ambitious goal is achieved. MSMEs in India contribute 30% of our GDP and employ 100 million people.

The above Summit would explore the Business, Industries & Government inputs on achieving the ambitious target - $ One Trillion Economy by 2030. This Summit is a platform, conceptualized to create opportunities for learning and sharing knowledge among the members, directors & organizations covering on Entrepreneurship with special focus on achieving $ 1 trillion economy by 2030. It would be a major networking event of the year to evolve a suitable model to attain the trillion dollar vision, with expected participation of organisations and around 100+ business leaders, industrialists, policy makers, parliamentarians, governance and professionals from all over the State. IOD is working diligently in bringing the most potential and contributing State Government representatives and leaders in the industry to explore and deliberate on the above theme to realize the dream.


This Summit has series of technical sessions and panel discussion on cutting edge issues related to Entrepreneurship, industry and economy, MSMEs along with many opportunities for networking and socializing with our members.



State Government representatives, Diplomats, Bureaucrats, Industrialist, Manufacturers, Trade Commissioners & Associations Councils, IOD Members, Chamber of Commerce and so on….. Join us on our journey to help the state become the next Knowledge Capital and Innovation Hub strategizing on promoting Entrepreneurship and in turn supporting MSMEs…..
