The second edition of the Indian Mobile Congress (IMC) is expected to be a star studded event with participation expected from top government ministers, regulators, standards bodies and companies across the globe, for which the government has assured all possible assistance. To make the event a success, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to open the inaugural session on October 25.
A top government official said that during the Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multi-Sectoral Technical and Economic Cooperation (BIMSTEC) summit on August 30-31 in Kathmandu, Prime Minister Modi invited member countries to participate in IMC. “He has expressed interest in attending the event,” he added. Department of Communications (DoT) is actively working with COAI on the event and has helped the industry body get participation conformation from various regulatory bodies and international organisations.
