The conference opened with the delegates discussing about the growth in the media and entertainment industry in 2013.
Uday Shankar said that the government has neither been able to leverage the impact mass media can have in India nor harness the power of media as an economic engine.
“The media industry is unique and despite the slowdown last year, the media and entertainment industry experienced a growth of four percent over last year and this is a testament to the tenacity of the industry,” stated Uday Shankar.
Uday added that this is not a sector whose value is measured just by the size of its financial contribution. Media and entertainment, he said, remains central to defining the direction of India’s social and economic path; its work remains key to the imagination and inspiration of a billion Indians every day; and its health will be central to the ethos and values of the society we collectively shape.
