6) The meeting will be initiated with an address by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.

7) Chief Economic Advisor Arvind Subramanian will make a presentation.

8) The heads of all three industry chambers – FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry), CII  FICCI_1(Confederation of Indian Industry) and ASSOCHAM are among those invited for the meet. Representatives from Federation of Indian Export Organizations (FIEO) will also attend the meeting.
