Mumbai: With Union Budget 2023 being presented this week the prime time of the year has arrived when there is an increased curiosity among the citizens of India on what’s next for the Indian economy?
The diversified Indian economy has grown steadily over the past 50 years, with strong trade relations with other countries. Expectations from industry leaders of different sectors are sky-high for the upcoming union budget. In an endeavour to report timely updates and analysis on the budget, Zee Business’ Shining India news show aims at engaging the viewers on budget day’ on 1 February 2023 from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., primarily focusing on a full-day analysis, with a breakdown and discussion on the budget 2023-24. This will also further add extensive value to the advertisers, as it can create an impactful brand value among the target audience.
Through the Shining India, the channel has exclusively lined up guests and leaders to simplify the budget/finance jargons for the common man. This will allow viewers to have an in-depth understanding of the impact of union budget proposals on their day-to-day life. From the business point of view, this strategised move also brings in revenue and creates opportunities for sponsorship on exclusive budget programming and special packages around this theme.
