Training young minds to tackle global issues

The summit aims to train students in global issues by conducting sessions similar to the UN general assembly, economic and social council, and security council during the four-day event. At the inauguration, the state minister civil aviation, Saurabh Patel appreciated this move by CII, of bringing young minds together, boosting their leadership quality and polishing their planning skills, which are the right keys to success.

Around 400 students from various disciplines like engineering, business, technology and architecture from 76 different institutes have participated in the summit.
"As many as 21 global issues like disarmament, world prices, and inflation will be debated upon. The sessions will also comprise resolutions that will be later sent as a report to the UN," said national vice-chairman of Young Indians, Rahul Mirchandani.
