New Delhi: Renowned Indian American health expert Mukesh Hariawala will address the fourth edition of the India Leadership Conclave 2013 in Mumbai next month.

Harvard trained and internationally acclaimed Indian American healthcare economist and cardiac surgeon Dr Mukesh Hariawala will deliver the keynote address with the theme " President Barack Obama 2nd Term - Business Implications on Indian Healthcare ".

This highly anticipated lecture is expected to attract an elite audience and will dispel negative myths that surround the hotly debated "Obamacare" - President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act (ACA), its implementation milestones, changing ecosystems in the US, but importantly its positive impact on the Indian healthcare industry.

In an exclusive interview to ANI, Dr.Hariawala emphasized on the 100-billion dollar medical tourism revenue opportunity, increased IT contracts, generic drug company revenues and overseas insurance company investments in Indian healthcare sector facilitated by soft FDI policies of incumbent Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

The cumulative effect would accelerate the GDP trajectory from a limping five percent close to the earlier projected eight percent rate.

This undoubtedly will help multiple industry augmented employment and improvement in living standards for a good portion of the Indian population with an overall tangential impact on the national BPL.

Expectantly, this will be refreshing news for the Planning Commission of India and a boost in its implementation of the ambitious 12th - 5 year plan.

Dr.Hariawala further added that " Obamacare " will also necessitate revamping of all the computing systems handling U.S. healthcare which would open a wide door of business opportunity for Indian IT companies.

Purely for financial reasons, this will in all likelihood compel the U.S. Government to continue large outsourcing of software contracts. The key economic driver of "Obamacare" is to reduce the debt ridden trillion dollar healthcare burden on the U.S. exchequer.

Global experts have suggested that Dr Hariawala's lecture will shed new light and open up a wider debate, considering his deep-rooted intellectual insight of Indo-American business cultures.

Over 300 iconic leaders, including Reliance Industries owner Mukesh Ambani and Tata Group ex-chairman Ratan Tata, will take part in the event, which has been organised by the Network 7 Media Group and the Ministry of Corporate Affairs.

Top politicians, bureaucrats, other business tycoons, social reformers, media barons, diplomats and global dignitaries will attend one of Asia's largest events to be held in Mumbai on June 21 at the Majestic Hall in the Lalit Intercontinental Hotel.

The theme will be "New India - Agenda for Change".

Dr.Hariawala is widely regarded as an influential policy thinker, and is expected to elaborate on his popular concepts of " Universal Patient Care " and " Womb to Tomb " economical insurance models for all Indians across the entire spectrum of socio - economic classes.
