Theme: The 19th World Productivity Congress themed "Industry 4.0 - Innovation and Productivity" which represents the Fourth Industrial Revolution that amalgamates the capabilities of humans and machines.

The congress will focus on topics Digital Transformation, Technologies for I-4.0, Innovation in Service Industries, Implications for Global Challenges and Smart Manufacturing.
Destination India: The long-term Indian GDP growth is considered stable, diversified and resilient. Over the next few years, India is expected to grow at well over 7 per cent per year, with progress being sustained by dynamic reforms in the macroeconomic, fiscal, tax and business environments.
India is expected to be the third-largest consumer economy as its consumption is projected to reach USD 4 trillion by 2025, due to an expanding middle-class population, growing disposable incomes, urbanisation and rising affluence. This tremendous market potential makes India the ideal choice for the 19th World Productivity Congress.
Objectives of this Congress:
* To contribute to the development of productivity science through trans-national presentations, keynote speeches and panel discussions.
* To act as a trans-national forum for discussions on policy and infrastructure development to support high productivity manufacturing organisations.
* The event will also provide an incentive to the Manufacturing sector via focused deliberations that will bridge the Indian industry with Global Knowledge and Technology.
