Automotive industry has always been most dynamic and fierce when it comes to innovations. The blitz of Covid-19 made automakers suffer with challenging first half of 2020, slightly lifted by a more buoyant Q3. Global terminations abrupted production and supply chains were dislocated. Despite a tuff 2020, the next decade will be one of its biggest yet for automotive since city authorities are striving hard to resolve traffic pain points, congestion problems and accidents and people are always hunting for better, comfortable, and sometime luxurious experience. The year hence gave automakers the prospect to reposition themselves as they emerge from the crisis on a new path towards electrification and connectivity.  This session will also bring together the great minds from OEMS, ride sharing verticals, component suppliers, innovators, disruptors, startups, and investors to come together and scrutinize current market state and drive innovations which are agile.
