From The President’s Desk


Hello Friends, Associates, and IBG Members,

This is the last newsletter for 2022. An eventful year finally comes to an end. Covid came under control, and life as we knew it returned to normal. We saw full activity, events, parties, conferences, etc.

The business sector recouped, stock markets soared, exports grew, and all seems great, going into the new year. Some issues seem to be imminent with China going into covid lockdown but we can hope it does not impact India.

India has hit a 7% growth in GDP. This is expected to become 4% in the coming year, making India the 4th largest large economy in the world. The government’s efforts of last 7-8 years are paying off for everyone, individuals, companies, and the economy at large. There is a sense of confidence all around. Businesses must take full advantage, begin growth plans which we kept on hold since the beginning of covid. Hiring must increase, so should investments in equipment and people.

One of the key learnings is to allow people down the line take key decisions of running the businesses and not hoarding all decisions at the top. In reality people doing the nuts and bolts are better aware of the issues involved.

Please open up your mindsets and work positively to expand and grow your businesses

- Business Guru Vikash Mittersain
IBG Founder & President,
