Interactive Session on Impact of Illicit Trade on Industry, Economy and Consumers
The existence and operation of illicit trade vis-à-vis counterfeiting and smuggling has been an enduring problem that has escalated in scope and magnitude, impacting industries, government, economies and, the health and safety of the consumers. Moreover, such operations have close links to terror organizations and criminal networks. In fact, it is today one of the biggest challenges faced by India and its industry, impacting the country’s image in the global arena.
FICCI’s Committee Against Smuggling and Counterfeiting Activities Destroying the Economy (CASCADE), over the years, has been actively focusing on curbing the problem of growing illicit trade in smuggled, pass-offs and counterfeit goods. In pursuance of our agenda, FICCI is organizing an interactive session on the ‘Impact of Illicit Trade on Industry, Economy and Consumers’ on 24th May 2017 from 7 pm onwards at ITC Maurya, New Delhi.
This interactive session will comprise a panel discussion which will include panelists from policy makers, economists, enforcement agencies, industry and consumer organization. The intent of this session is to facilitate a wider exchange and ensure a multifaceted perspective to understand the gravity of the menace caused by illicit trade activities.
We wish to cordially invite you to attend this interactive session and take part in the deliberations, and subsequently join us for cocktails and dinner.
The programme outline is attached for your kind reference.
Please send your confirmation on or before 19th May, 2017.
