North India Council (NIC) of the Indo- American Chamber of Commerce (IACC) continuously works towards fostering the existing Indo- US cooperation in diverse sectors in the Northern region. As NIC’s Regional President, I am quite confident of our outreach and proactive initiatives in Delhi- NCR and other Northern states, simultaneously boasting of a strong Industry presence through our vibrant membership base and the reliable and friendly working relationship we have developed with US Embassy and Indian Government over the years.
I realize the strategic importance that IACC’s Northern office holds in influencing our overall bilateral dialogue, being located in the country’s Capital that headquarters our Central Government and US Embassy while also being the most natural destination for any high profile visit from US. NIC proactively pursues the Indo- US cause in a number of sectors while engaging the governments and Industries at both ends.
Our committees act as powerful confluence points for sector specific deliberations as well as high profile, focused networking. Our events are uniformly spread across the year also including the much awaited annual flagship editions of the Indo- US Economic Summit, Fellowship Nite etc.
We also remain attentive to the emerging trends in our bilateral engagement and the efforts of the US Embassy, Indian government and Industry to carefully shape our initiatives accordingly. Healthcare, IT and Cyber Security, Aviation and Aerospace, Infrastructure, Legal and Financial Services, Food and Agri Business, Hospitality and Tourism and Media and Entertainment are a few areas under our past and future focus. Some crucial emerging sectors such as Business Process Services, eCommerce and Smart Cities also fall under our priority list that will be key trend setters in the overall trade and commerce.
Fortified with unique and novel initiatives, IACC-NIC acts as a knowledge intensive platform for bilateral trade, networking and generating business to business contacts for its stakeholders throughout the year.
Best Regards and Greetings.
