"Cities in the past were built on riverbanks, They are now built along highways. But in the future, they will be built based on availability of optical fiber networks and next-generation infrastructure-"
Narendra Modi - Prime Minister of India. smart cities

India’s economy is expanding rapidly. By 2030 it is expected to have grown by five times, buoyed largely by the country’s urban centres. During the same period, the country’s labour force is expected to grow by 270 million workers, with urban jobs accounting for 70% of that growth. Today, India is less than 30 percent urban and the quality of life in its cities is chronically low. However, with 2/3rds of GDP already generated in India’s cities and rural to urban migration patterns accelerating, the country faces a critical challenge: managing this rapid urbanization in a way that enhances the livability of India’s urban spaces. Every minute during the next 20 years, 30 Indians will leave rural India for urban areas. At this rate, India will need some 500 new cities in the next two decades. If there were ever a time to focus on developing solutions for sustainable cities, that time is now.

The new pro-business government is advocating reforms that will boost infrastructure investment, streamline decision-making and, in the end, get the Indian economy rolling. Mr. Narendra Modi has given major emphasis to urban development as an engine of growth. He intends to pursue large-scale building and modernization projects, including high speed rail systems and hydroelectric power plants. Smooth clearances of land deeds and environmental approval for mega project shall play an important role.

Indus Media together with partners such as Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI),ICLEI,KfW,National Institute of Urban Affairs (NIUA) will organise the summit as part of the Asia-Pacific Weeks Berlin 2015 and will take place at the Metropolitan Solution 2015 in Berlin CityCube.

The Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) will organise Indian Government & Industry delegation at the "India meets Europe" 100 Smart Cities Berlin Summit
