People to people interaction provide further vitality and strength to bilateral relationship.
US-India Importers' Council (USIIC) said that it is going to be the leading organisation assisting government bodies, industry associations, corporates, agents, Indian importers, and American companies in connection to decision makers in Government and private sector in India and vice versa.
India-US relations have become increasingly broad covering cooperation in areas such as trade and economy, defense and security, education, science and technology, high-technology, civil nuclear energy, space technology and applications, clean energy, environment and health.
People to people interaction provide further vitality and strength to bilateral relationship. There have been regular contacts at political and official levels and a wide-ranging dialogue architecture on bilateral, regional and global issues has been put in place.
"Gujarat has strong ties with the Gujarati diaspora in USA. We wish to use the platform of USIIC to create a strong connect between Gujarat and the American Indian diaspora as well as American companies," said Shreyas Sheth of Amol Dicalite Ltd.
"After my recent visit to the USA to promote Vibrant Gujarat 2015, I realised that the SMEs in Gujarat and the USA need a platform to connect with each other. USIIC will be one of those platforms to connect USA and Indian Government, SMEs and academia with each other. Business will grow only through regular interactions of trade and investment between Indian and American companies. Indian diaspora in USA wants to invest in India, but is looking for closer handholding. It is time to move to the next level," said Jagat Shah, CEO, Global Network.
USIIC Ahmedabad will lead the trade and investment delegation from Gujarat to USA in April 2015.
