Destination India sets major diaspora event

The PBD has become a major event for the diaspora, where the states try to get the NRIs to invest to help job creation and development, and nurture cultural and social contacts.

The 14th Pravasi Bhartiya Divas (PBD) will be held in Bengaluru, the capital of Karnataka in southern India, from January 7 to 9, 2017.

Among the topics to be discussed at this gathering on non-resident Indians and People of India Origin will be how to accelerate tourism in India and to make India a destination for health care.

Both President Pranab Mukherjee and Prime Minister N. Modi will address the delegates from all over the world.


On January 5 and 6, the GOPIO – Global Organization of People of Indian Origin – will hold its meeting, also in Bengaluru.

On January 7, the focus will be on youth.
