This years Summit set a new record for total participation with over 800 leaders from industry, government, civil society and academia from over 40 countries.

The country also faces security threats at home.• Palaniappan Chidambaram, Minister of Home Affairs of India, addressed the domestic threat. "Our security challenges are no different than those facing every country of the world - terrorists," he said. "We are alive to the challenge. Every day, every week and every month we are adding capacity and building confidence.• Most panellists agreed that India will have to rely on a large basket of both clean and dirty energy for the foreseeable future.

Asian Affairs August 2010India has skilled, English-speaking labor at far cheaper rates than can be found anywhere else.Approximately 85 percent of its population is younger than 45, giving India vitality and forwardmomentum.To capitalize on this reality, particularly in high-tech and export zones, India must stay focused onincreasing access to power and water. India’s strong legal system and low-cost, high-skill labor markeoffer investors further incentives.India has seen heavy investment in sectors driven by consumer demand, which has primarily benefitedlarge cities, as they already enjoy developed infrastructure.

The governmenthas made building infrastructure a priority, meaning investment will flow into sectors like power andtransportation, which are instrumentalfor developing growth.
