It is a great pleasure and honour to take charge as the Chairman of AP/TS Branch for 2015-16.
I would like to thank all the members who reposed faith in me and gave me this responsibility.
AP and TS are both extremely potential states for Indo American Bilateral trade more so in the contest of Indo-US Trade Mission of 500 billion USD.
Both the states are having visionary political leadership and policy makers, with whom I will work very closely to ensure that IACC have relevance in bilateral trade.
Growth of this chamber will depend on active participation of all the members. I request all of you to participate actively in various initiatives being taken and I will work closely with my team, Regional Office and HO to provide value add to all the members in their respective areas of business. We will focus on Pharma, IT/ITES, Startups, Infrastructure and Agriculture as major sectors of bilateral trade.
I will also closely work with US consulate and US commercial service on various initiatives of the Chamber.
All members are requested share suggestion / feedback with me directly and help the branch in increasing the membership base so that we are relevant at policy making level.
