N ew industries and rising business cities, high-profile interviews with industrialists and entrepreneurs and exclusive access inside corporate India make ‘Eye on India', a must-watch week of business coverage on CNN. Beginning March 14, the network focuses on the world's second most populous nation to bring global viewers a week of in-depth business coverage live from Mumbai and around the country.
It is centred on ‘World Business Today', hosted from India's financial hub, as business specialist Andrew Stevens and CNN's team of India correspondents profile the players, companies and trends contributing to the country's economic growth. “Eye on India” also features a special edition of Talk Asia with Indian business icon Kumar Mangalam Birla, chairman of the multinational Aditya Birla Group. A dedicated site, cnn.com/eyeon, has additional reports, special features and more information about the week of programming.
As an additional aspect of Eye on India, CNN will invite the global audience, especially those in India, to participate by sharing their views on everything that is ‘Uniquely India'. Viewers can submit pictures and videos via iReport (www.ireport.com/eyeonindia) on the unique aspects that they believe define the country. Selected submissions will feature on CNN. com and across the week's programming.
