The 13th Annual Pravasi Bharitiya Divas (PBD) recently concluded in Kochi. The three-day event, held on January 9, commemorates the day that Mahatma Gandhi returned to India from South Africa.


The PBD conventions are held with an aim to provide the overseas Indian diaspora with a platform to engage with the Indian government. Various seminars on topics like Tourism, Pure Sciences, Growth opportunities in India, Heritage and Diaspora and investment opportunities in different states were held across the three days.


The event was inaugurated by Minister for Overseas Indian Affairs Vayalar Ravi and Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and President Pranab Mukherjee were also present at the event.


In conjunction with the event, an exhibition was also organized which gave companies interested in targeting NRIs and PIOs an opportunity to interact with each other, as well as the delegates who were attending the event.


Among the various banking, real estate, state boards and media companies, Sony Entertainment Television Asia was a key exhibitor. Sony Network’s vast global presence especially catering to NRIs and PIOs made it an automatic fit for the exhibition. Sony showcased their programming and distribution strength in the international markets and received many enquiries for the same.
