  • Ratings12345

The World Hindu Economic Forum (WHEF) promotes activities to make society prosperous, primarily through the generation and sharing of material wealth.

Following the successful first WHEF conference held in Hong Kong on 30 June and 1 July 2012, a number of regional conferences are being organized around the world.

WHEF Pacific Regional Forum on the theme “Making the South Pacific community prosperous” will be held at Sheraton Fiji Resort, Denarau Island, Nadi, Fiji on Saturday, 16 February 2013. The Pacific Region includes Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and other South Pacific Island countries.

The Hindu business community contributes significantly to trade, commerce and industry in South Pacific countries, especially in New Zealand, Australia and Fiji.

The Pacific Regional Hindu Economic Forum seeks to bring together financially successful business people such as traders, bankers, technocrats, investors, industrialists, economists, thinkers and professionals to share their business knowledge, experience, and expertise with their fellow business people with the aim of generating surplus wealth in service of society and Dharma.

This conference also gives an opportunity to develop a network among business people to further strengthen and organize their roles in trade, industry, business and contribute to the economy of the Pacific Region countries.

The conference organising committee is inviting two keynote speakers from India to address the Forum: Prof. R Vaidyanathan, Professor of Finance, Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore will speak on “Global Economic Crisis and an opportunity for Hindus”; and Swami Vigyananand, the founder of WHEF, will give the background of the movement.

The conference will also feature group discussion sessions to discuss industry success stories, challenges and opportunities. The number of registrations will be limited to 150.

The primary objectives of WHEF are to promote activities for developing enterprise and entrepreneurship globally; to develop solutions for the most crucial of the issues confronting the world economy such as sustainable development, education, eradication of poverty, climate change and infrastructure development; and to promote a value based corporate governance system through organizing seminars, conferences and research activities.
