They form part of the Tata Group which is India largest conglomerate operating in over 150 countries. Acknowledged as the founder of the Tata Group in 1868,  Jamsetji Tata is sometimes referred to as the “father of Indian industry”.

Tata Tiscon plays a vital role in the nation building by building ecosystems, nurturing entrepreneurs and empowering consumers.

Tatas decision to hold the  conference in Sri Lanka is a demonstration of Indian companies willing to support the rebuilding efforts in Sri Lanka. The conference and logistics are being handled by their main dealer and representative in South India, the VNC Group.

 Tata Steel will also make a substantial cash contribution to the ‘Lifeline Sri Lanka’ project jointly run by Rotary International and UNICEF to fund medicine supplies to Sri Lanka.
