17th Edition Asia-Europe Business and Social Forum: Awards & Business Summit

17th Edition Asia-Europe Business and Social Forum: Awards & Business Summit

'Collaboration: The Key to Mutual Prosperity in a Post-pandemic World' was the theme of the 17th Edition of Asia-Europe Business & Social Forum 2022 Awards & Business Summit, which concluded successfully on the 12th of April'22 at London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square, London, UK. The Forum's main aim was to deliberate and dwell upon possibilities of collaboration for enhancing trade, investment, cultural exchange and tourism among the participating countries, especially in light of the pandemic. This mega Summit was a grand congregation of business, political and social leaders from different countries of the region who came forward to facilitate fresher avenues of economic cooperation, collaboration and investment opportunities across the globe especially in the Eurasian, Gulf and African region. Once again, AsiaOne Media Group created a unique and unmatched platform where highly intellectual and insightful thoughts were created on the significance of collaboration and mutual cooperation especially in the light of the pandemic.
The Summit was organized by AsiaOne magazine and URS Media, which is rapidly emerging as the Number 1 international media company towards the cause of business, political and social issues in the entire Asia, Africa and Middle East, thus supporting not only the Indian Government's initiatives such as Skilling India, Digitizing India, and Incredible India, but also supporting United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals and World Health Organization's targets.
Through the 17th Edition of Asia-Africa Business & Social Forum 2022, envious social and economic progress of Asia, Middle East and Africa was highlighted. At the same time, the Forum witnessed gracious participation of some of the great leaders of our time - Hon'ble Members of Parliament of House of the UK Parliament, Ambassadors, Business Owners, Investors and professionals like CEOs, CFOs, CTOs, CHROs, from Europe, South Asia and the Middle East.
Mr. Rajat Raj Shukal, Global Head & Principal Partner, AsiaOne Media Group, opened the summit with his welcome address to the dignitaries. He said, "Ladies and gentlemen it is a pleasure being here. London is back, London is busy - so beautiful and it is a pleasure to have so many UK Members of Parliament here. I think you have been instrumental to have UK back. UK came back, not only in terms of business but also in terms of enthusiasm that is back into the people. So it's wonderful to be here and I welcome all of you today evening. Before I start ladies and gentlemen let me name Excellencies who are also here representing their countries. Your Excellencies, it is a pleasure to have you here. You are the first citizens in London, UK, and even before I start, the Grosvenor House - many of you would know - Grosvenor House was actually America's first presence in London and in early 2000, the American Embassy was here and that's where the America and UK ties go back. So, it is a pleasure to be here in this location at the iconic Marriott Grosvenor Square and so wonderful to have all of you including Excellencies from Serbia, Moldova, Tunisia, South Africa, Honduras, Nicaragua, Haiti, Gambia, Kyrgyz Republic which is Kyrgyzstan, and Nigeria. Thank you so much Excellencies for gracing the evening. It's a pleasure to have you here. I am happy to tell you that we had also invited the Prime Minister of UK Mr. Boris Johnson tonight but unfortunately he is not here; we have received a letter from his office - he has given us his congratulatory message and best wishes for the summit!"
In fact, it is matter of great pleasure for AsiaOne magazine to receive a congratulatory message from the office of the Hon'ble Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, The Rt. Hon. Boris Johnson, 10 Downing Street expressing his intention to attend the summit. The letter read, "Your kind invitation to the Prime Minister is much appreciated. I was interested to read how the Summit will unite business and social leaders from various parts of the world. As I hope you will understand, due to the many pressures on his diary, the Prime Minister will be unable to join you on this occasion. However, I would like to send you and your team at AsiaOne and URS my best wishes for a successful event, on his behalf."
Emphasising upon the importance of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in the current scenario, Mr. Ajay Harinath Singh, CMD, Darwin Platform Group of Companies, who was also the Partner for the 17th AEBSF, said, "We strongly value our commitment to social welfare, especially in the light of the ongoing pandemic. I am delighted to state that our conglomerate DPGC gave more than 35,000 jobs to the youth of the nation during the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact our aim is to offer more and more jobs so as to boost the economy and our recent venture in E-vehicles segment will definitely serve the purpose. Through the upcoming AsiaOne COVID-19 Commitment Awards in the UK, we intend to promote the spirit of sharing and caring, which we believe are the most significant virtues inherent in human beings."
