The Indo-American Chamber of Commerce in association with the American Consulate General in Mumbai celebrated the 10th Indo-American Trade Excellence Awards and the 238th American Independence Day on July 2, 2014 in Mumbai.  
 
Mr. Dilip Walse-Patil, Speaker of the Maharashtra State Legislative Assembly, was the Chief Guest at the function, and Mr. Anil Deshmukh, Minister of Food, Civil Supplies, and Consumer Protection, Maharashtra State, the Guest of Honor. 
 
Koyal Rana, Femina Miss India World 2014, and Gail Da’Silva, Miss India 2014 2nd Runner Up, were also at the event and featured in the proceedings. 
 
Through the Awards, the Chamber celebrated trade excellence and recognized the best Indian Companies in the US and the best US Companies in India in various categories. 22 awards were presented.  A distinguished Jury of Indians and Americans have selected the awards. The awards included special individual awards for Indian and American Business Leaders of the Year and Woman Corporate Leaders, as well as Companies of the Year Awards. The awards provided an impetus for both Indian and American companies to work towards growth in their businesses in both countries.    
 
The event saw the attendance of over 500 VIPs from all walks of life such as Finance, legal, IT, Manufacturing Marketing, Consultancies and pharmaceuticals among others. The 10th IATE awards 2014 is IACC's flagship event and serves as an excellent platform for business networking and an interaction with the who's who of the Indian and American business world. The awards program was intended to inspire companies in various sectors which are already doing outstanding work to raise the bar and contribute to enhanced economical and industrial growth. Year after year, we, at IACC, look forward to set and pursue higher goals to bring the economy and trade between United States of America and India closer together.
 
Chief Guest Mr. Dilip Walse-Patil said “It is my very proud privilege to be associated with the Indo-American Chamber of Commerce and the American Consulate General in Mumbai in the celebration of the Indo-US Trade Excellence Awards and the celebration of American Independence Day. I am at this function for the second year running.  During my presence last year, I was highly impressed by the transparency in the awards process and the manner in which the awards presentation function was organized and conducted.  I became fully aware of the importance and quality of the awards which are selected through a rigorous process by a distinguished jury of Indians and Americans. It is, therefore, that I have special pleasure in congratulating the award winners.  
 
Mr. Patil added that “It is important to give encouragement to businessmen and businesses in both countries in order to raise the level of business growth.  Tax sops provide encouragement; easier corporate laws provide that; one-stop windows do that.  Similarly, such awards provide encouragement because they set examples and models and further the competitive spirit”.  
 
Mr. Patil heartily congratulated the two organizations for coming together to celebrate this event and Ms. Deanna Abdeen, the Acting American Consul General in Mumbai, and through her the entire American community in Mumbai and the people of the United States on their 238th year of Independence.  
 
Commenting on the event, Mr. Nanik Rupani, Regional President, Indo-American Chamber of Commerce (IACC) said: "Our main aim is to promote trade and commerce between India and the United States and at the same time make our cultural bilateral ties stronger." He added that special emphasis will be laid upon education, which is a key for the progress of any nation.
 
IACC works closely with the US Embassy and Consulate to expand the multi-faceted relations between India and US.  In keeping with tradition, the US consulate had endorsed the program with several of the senior officials who were in attendance.
 
The Indo-American Chamber of Commerce (IACC) is committed to promoting trade, commerce and business relations between India and the United States and is the only bilateral Chamber at the forefront of facilitating stronger business ties between two of the world's largest economies.
