The theme for Artha 2020 is ‘Reimagine, Rebuild, Reclaim’. The event is an attempt to decipher how individuals, businesses and governments are impacted by a rapidly evolving world.

The theme will build on how finance, along with technology, can be leveraged to rebuild stronger and more inclusive communities.
