    The 16th Pravasi Bharatiya Divas convention will be held today through virtual mode. The convention will commence at 10 AM in the morning and will be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

    During the inaugural session, President of the Republic of Suriname and Chief Guest, Chandrikapersad Santokhi will address the participants. The Valedictory Address will be delivered by President Ram Nath Kovind. The theme of the 16th Pravasi Bharatiya Divas is “Contributing to Aatmanirbhar Bharat”.

    Pravasi Bharatiya Divas is celebrated once in every two years to strengthen the engagement of the overseas Indian community with the Indian Government and it is also an endeavour which reconnects them with their roots. This year due to the pandemic, the convention is being held in a virtual mode, which will be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

    The inaugural session will be followed by the two plenary sessions where discussions between eminent diaspora experts will be held on themes which include Role of Diaspora in Aatmanirbhar Bharat, and Facing Post Covid Challenges.

    India is proud of its largest diaspora across the globe which consists of nearly 31 million people. External Affairs Minister, Dr. Subrahmanyam Jaishankar, recently said that the Indian government values it’s vast diaspora enormously as they are the image of the country in the world.

    India is also the country with the highest foreign remittances in the world which amounts to over 80 billion US dollars. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has time and again said that the Indian diaspora is the living root bridge between India and the world.

    He believes that the success of our diaspora has changed the perception of both India and Indians across the world. In the political sphere as well, people of Indian Origin are in prominent positions across the world.

    Kamala Harris, Priyanca Radhakrishnan , Pravind Jugnauth, Leo Varadkar , Nikki Haley, Bobby Jindal, Priti Patel, Preet Bharara and Pramila Jayapal are few such names in the long list.

    The growing prominence of Indians in both business and politics abroad is raising the profile of the country and will further encourage future trade links. Huge number of participants have registered this year to participate in the convention where 30 eminent diaspora members will be honoured with the Pravasi Bharatiya Samman Awards.

    Fifteen winners of the Bharat Ko Janiye Quiz will also be announced in the convention who would be later invited for a pan-India tour after the Covid-19 pandemic.
