Overview

The Public Affairs Forum of India (PAFI) is a not-for-profit society that serves as a professional resource for public affairs and corporate affairs professionals. It provides members with a platform and an opportunity to exchange information and share knowledge & experiences by connecting with external stakeholders such as the government, media, industry associations, multilateral agencies and think-tanks. The forum also helps them to advance and develop the field of Public Affairs, as well as provides tools & resources to achieve business and professional goals in an ethical manner.

Since its inception, the forum has been actively promoting public affairs as a profession by organising regular meetings for members to exchange views and share experiences. It is PAFI’s belief that public affairs will play an increasingly significant role in organisations as well as the development of India’s economic landscape.
