NEW DELHI: For India Inc, the near-future course of the country’s economy and global trade negotiations are top-of-themind issues. In less than a fortnight, business leaders will get the opportunity to listen to two policymakers who will directly influence those changes.

In Mumbai, on November 30, Finance and Corporate Affairs Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and Railways and Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal will address a powerpacked industry audience at the 2019 edition of the Economic Times Awards for Corporate Excellence. Home Minister Amit Shah will deliver the keynote address at the event.

From revival measures to RCEP, from tax changes to trading rules for ecommerce, Sitharaman and Goyal are two ministers in the Narendra Modi cabinet whose decisions have made headlines and impacted bottom lines.

Shah, Sitharaman and Goyal form a speaker lineup that’s tough to beat any time, and more so now, when India is looking for answers to key questions on national security, growth and global economic engagement.

Listening to them, as part of a blue chip business gathering, will be the winners of ET Awards 2019. Bajaj Finance, the NBFC which got going as the going got immensely tough for the sector, is the winner of the Company of the Year award.

Roll of Honour
The Emerging Company of the Year is the small bank that looms large as an innovator in finance, Bandhan Bank. Wipro has almost become synonymous with philanthropy in India and is the richly deserving recipient of ET’s Corporate Citizen of the Year award.

In picking Devendra Fadnavis, until recently the chief minister of Maharashtra, as this year’s Business Reformer, the ET Awards jury acknowledged the contribution of a politician who understands the value of entrepreneurship. Former UIDAI boss and now Union revenue secretary Ajay Bhushan Pandey is the Policy Change Agent of the year, for his role in shepherding Aadhaar.

There’s more to the 2019 edition of India’s most prestigious corporate awards. Watch this space.
