At the Country of Honour, the main focus is Indian cinema, its culture and heritage. The event will hold performances by Indian choir bands along with folk music and fireworks. During the event, five new Indian start-ups would be given an opportunity to pitch their business idea to the audio-visual industry. 

Union Minister of Information & Broadcast Ministry, Anurag Thakur tweeted:
