PALO ALTO, Calif., June 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MetricStream, a market leader in Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) solutions will join a distinguished group of policy makers, statesmen, CEOs, business executives, and thought leaders from across the globe at the Horasis Global India Business Meeting, which will be held from June 23-24 in Belfast, UK. Mr. Gunjan Sinha, Executive Chairman of MetricStream, will moderate a panel discussion on how global and domestic businesses can thrive in emerging economies, and effectively manage and mitigate attendant risks.
As the world economy becomes increasingly volatile, and GDP growth continues to slow down, developed and developing countries will need to come together and forge strong partnerships. Collaboration is a critical component of sustainable growth, which can safeguard our economies from future economic upheavals and recessions.
"The Horasis Global India Business Meeting is an exceptional forum for leaders of the world to come together and share their experiences, expertise, and insights on how to accelerate global economic growth," said Mr. Sinha. He continued, "Globalization and trade liberalization have created lucrative business opportunities in new and emerging markets, particularly in India and China. Along with these new opportunities come significant and complex risks, which need to be collaboratively understood, mitigated, and managed. I look forward to discussing these themes with fellow business leaders, policy makers, and heads of state at this upcoming Horasis event."
Mr. Sinha has been invited to speak at previous Horasis events in Belgium, Barcelona, Munich, Lisbon, Madrid, and Naples. As Executive Chairman of MetricStream, Mr. Sinha has helped many leading organizations strengthen their governance, risk, and compliance efforts, ultimately to enable them to 'thrive on risk'. He is recognized and respected by his peers around the world for his insights and contributions to key issues and topics including risk management, governance, entrepreneurship, and emerging markets.
"We are very pleased that MetricStream will join us as a Knowledge Partner at our 2013 Horasis Global India Business Meeting," said Dr. Frank-Jurgen Richter, Chairman of Horasis. He continued, "This annual gathering of global business leaders aims at developing actionable ideas that promote collaborative and inclusive economic growth and development. We look forward to Mr. Sinha's insights on how to effectively balance the risk and opportunity equation in emerging economies."
