Pravasi Bharatiya Divas aims at bringing the expertise and knowledge of the Indian overseas community to India and integrating it into India's development process. Pravasi Bharatiya Divas is focused to highlight networking opportunities and collaborating them to confer a mutual developing platform. Generating this synergy to excel together towards a bright India along with the Indian overseas community is what Pravasi Bharatiya Divas 2008 proclaims with its head held high.
It's a young India, it's an emerging India, and it’s a developing nation. No matter your qualification, status or resources, we are all Indians and can avail of the opportunities here. Let's work together, focus together and progress together. I look forward to receive you and see you participate in the fifth Pravasi Bharatiya Divas, which will take place from 7th to 9th January 2007.
