The AGM, with the theme 'Indian Business in a New India', will also be addressed by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on 14 December. Senior Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia will also address a special session.

Four state finance ministers — Sushil Modi, also the deputy chief minister of Bihar; Amit Mitra of West Bengal, Thomas Isaac of Kerala and Haseeb Drabu of Jammu & Kashmir — will talk about GST, which was ushered in the country on 1 July.
