The global recession would ease in the next 18 months and India, in particular, would recover faster, Kris Gopalakrishnan, chief executive and managing director of Infosys Technologies, and chairman of Industry Vision Group, said.
He was delivering the keynote address before the start of the panel discussion on 'Big vision big opportunities: Destination Mysore' organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) on Wednesday.
Goplakrishnan said export markets had remained stable despite the recession. This should strengthen industrialists' faith in the markets. If the investments continued and opportunities followed, growth would be assured, he said.
