Message from the Regional President-WIC


Dear Members,

It is a proud privilege for me to serve as the Regional President of the Indo-American Chamber of Commerce for West India Council for 2019-20.  The Indo American Chamber of Commerce founded in Mumbai in 1968 has always been in the forefront in providing opportunities for businessmen and professionals from India in interacting and forming links with US counterparts.  We have always maintained close links with the U.S. Consulate officials.

During the president ship of my predecessor, Ms. Poorvi Chothani, the WIC had opportunities to participate in several stellar events, of which few were “First Ever” initiative.  It was a fantastic year.

Many events are being planned under the leadership of present National President, Ms. Rajyalakshmi Rao and the WIC will actively participate in these as well as offer independent programs to its members.  We encourage our members to be involved in these, at an organizational and an individual level, as well.

This is the best time in decades as far as Indo-US relations are concerned and each country is eager to strengthen governmental, social and cultural ties, increase cross border trade and most importantly develop deep business linkages.  IACC is the unique bilateral body that can facilitate interaction between the Indian and American business communities.  It is our aim to provide a platform for all of these. High ranking Cabinet members, corporates and professionals participates in the Conventions and Seminars organized by IACC.  The programs we plan to hold with the assistance of all of you will take IACC to even greater heights.  I am hopeful that this will be the EFFECTIVE Year for IACC which can only be achieved with the cooperation and support of our members. Several sector focussed projects have been planned for this year and they will bring more recognition of the activities of IACC.  This year, with your support and participation I aim to continue the rich legacy of past leaders and present multiple avenues to promote trade and commerce between our two great countries and raise the profile of our chamber.

Let us work together to make this happen.

Naushad Panjwani
