Republic TV conducted a leadership summit and awards to felicitate business achievers in the Middle East. The Republic TV Gulf Indian Leadership Summit and Awards 2018, saw I&B and Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Rathore as chief guest along with Vipul, Consul General of India in Dubai and Surjit Bhalla, Member of the Prime Minister’s Economic Advisory Council, Republic editor-in-chief and chief promoter Arnab Goswami and Sameer Manchanda, Chairman, DEN Network.


Speaking at the event, Goswami presented an ambitious map for Indian media worldwide. He asked, ‘Why is it that the robust Indian media cannot produce international content and compete with the BBC and CNN’s of the world? Within the next two years, not later than 2020, Republic TV or any other Indian media must aim to do so. An Indian channel producing world coverage watched by everyone in hotels all around the world like this one in Dubai.’


Added Rathore: “Western perspective is all good but we have had enough of it. We now need Indian perspective of the world. All of you are ambassadors of India overseas and your voice is equally important.’”


Most awardees shared their critical views on the Indian Gulf business relationship and their stories of success with inspiring words and nuggets of wisdom on the panel discussions hosted by Goswami and Republic TV’s Shivani Gupta.The Dubai chapter of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India hosted the event along with Republic TV.
