Dr Reddy was invited for a fireside chat, representing the Board of Trustees of the USP. The discussion was led by Mr Matruprasad Priyadarshi, Senior Director of Regional Programs and Operations, USP South Asia. Appearing alongside Dr. Reddy were Dr Dennis E Doherty, President, USP Convention and Dr Richard J Gilfillan, Board member, USP Convention.
Dr Reddy spoke about the need for balance between self-reliance and globalization in the current age.

Dr Reddy argued that the time taken for innovations to reach the patients can be reduced with the cooperation of the regulators.
