New Delhi: The annual World Economic Summit on India to be held in Gurgaon will focus on addressing economic challenges like rising inflation and slowdown in growth.

The three-day annual meeting beginning November 6 "will be an opportunity to outline a blueprint for post-crisis India" and shape next wave of economic growth and transformation in international affairs, the WEF said on its website.

The Indian economy is facing new challenges like "falling growth rate, delays in much-needed reforms and waning investor confidence", it said.

The top industry leaders, decision-makers from government and civil society will gather to convene the World Economic Forum on India, which was previously known as 'India Economic Summit', under the working theme of "From Deliberation to Transformation".

Besides economic issues, about 500 industry leaders from over 30 countries will discuss "How can India rapidly apply technological innovations to improve governance practices and institutions to address obstacles to future growth such as corruption and bureaucratic inefficiency?"

Infosys Executive Co-Chairman Kris Gopalakrishnan, Eicher Motors CEO & MD Siddhartha Lal and Nigerian Dangote Group CEO Aliko Dangote are the co-chairs of the meeting.
