By Our Staff Reporter

CHENNAI, FEB. 19. The second edition of the annual Young Indians (YI) Summit being organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry in Bangalore on February 25 and 26 will focus on developing action plans on a range of issues, including education reforms, involving youth in environment protection and addressing unemployment.

Briefing presspersons here today, Narayan Sethuramon, chairman of the summit said the theme of the meet was "transforming India — making it happen."

The YI summit would serve as a forum for interaction on education, unemployment, technology, infrastructure, leadership, media and environment.

It would provide a platform for networking with Indian youth across the world, even while bringing together youth and leaders from many institutions, including business, government, local communities, non-governmental organisations and educational institutions.

Some of the speakers scheduled to address the summit are Deepak Parekh, Chairman, HDFC Bank'; B.S. Baswan, Secretary to the Ministry of Human Resource Development; Nasser Munjee, Senior Advisor of KPMG; Rahul Dravid, vice-captain of Indian cricket team; Sharmila Tagore, Chairperson of Central Board of Film Certification; Govinda, member of Parliament; N. Ram, Editor-in-Chief of The Hindu and Sunil Bharti Mittal, chairman and managing director, Bharti Enterprises.

Describing Young Indians, part of the CII, as an organisation of progressive Indians aged below 40, Mr. Sethuramon, who is also the joint managing director of W.S. Industries, said it had established eight chapters in the country.

This year, it proposed to set up chapters in economically disadvantaged locations, in the northeast and two abroad. The YI, which conducted a voter awareness campaign during the last general election, would be sponsoring 100 students to the meet and would unveil its web site at the summit.
