WHEF Explores Sustainable Ways to Strengthen Economy
New Delhi to host the 3rd WHEF with World Hindu Congress

Economic boom of previous two decades followed by a catastrophic recession of western economies has placed the entire world into turmoil. Fast growing, developing economies started suffering and experiencing deceleration. The response to these challenges is complex and needs to be addressed outside the current institutional framework and mindsets. It requires new and creative response, which can propel creation of surplus wealth to rescue the world economy from its current crisis. The present approach of World Hindu Economic Forum (WHEF) is based on this foundational wisdom i.e. to think in future for the future.

The second conference of the WHEF was held at hotel Royal Orchid Sheraton, Bangkok, Thailand  on 10th and 11th August 2013 which addressed the most critical agenda of the global economy. Over 30 distinguished speakers and eminent panelists addressed the forum, covering topics as diverse as “Opportunities and Challenges from Free Trade, Regional Economic Communities and new Geographical Areas”, “Enormous Opportunities in Alternative Energy”, “Agriculture, SMEs and Good Governance, Quality and Patents”, “Affordable Capital for Business and Industry” and “Inspiring Youth and Strengthening Economy”, and many more.

H.E. Dr. Olarn Chaipravat, Former Deputy Prime Minister and the President of Thailand Trade Representative inaugurated the conference. In his inaugural address, he emphasized that Thailand is re-shaping its future by improving its economy and growth and invited WHEF to be a partner in this endeavor. Dr. Olarn further said that Thai government has recently established the Venture Capital Fund that will provide a capital access to more than 1.5 million young entrepreneurs within next 20 years.

H.E. Anil Wadhwa, Ambassador of Bharat congratulated the organizers and gave a message of ‘Look East’ policy of Bharat and expected the present business of the country with Thailand to go up to 14 billion USD from the current 9 billion USD in 2014 under the FTA.

The first day session began with the inspiring speech by Mr. Susheel Kumar Saraff, Chairman of the Organizing Committee, in which apart from welcoming the delegates, he emphasized that Hindus should unite to regain their contribution of 35% to the global economy as before. Key to achieve this is mainly, through individual success leading to more contribution to society, networking and bringing Hindu minds together towards a common goal of economic growth.

The two days program comprising of various presentations, deliberations and panel discussions ended with a brief discussion on what is the way forward to implement all the ideas discussed during the two day event. The concluding session also highlighted on the different initiatives taken by the Hindu Business Network (HBN) portal team to put the forum on the front end through their website and networking sessions. The event concluded with a vote of thanks and invitation to World Hindu Congress 2014 which is scheduled to be held at Hotel Ashoka, New Delhi, Bharat during November 21-23, 2014.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
