Washington: The US-India Business Council (USIBC) will lead a US delegation of Fortune 500 CEOs and senior executives to the Vibrant Gujarat 2015 summit in Gandhinagar, Gujarat in January 2015.
This will be USIBC's fourth, and most prominent participation in the Vibrant Gujarat Summit as a Partner Organization with the Gujarat Government, the trade advocacy group of 300 plus top US companies doing business with India announced.
"USIBC is pleased to once again be a part of the Vibrant Gujarat Summit, having long supported the pro-business environment of the state," USIBC acting president Diane Farrell said.
"The summit provides a fantastic opportunity for our member companies to enhance their association in fields ranging from infrastructure to tourism, education to entertainment," he said.
USIBC's participation comes on the heels of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's address to the US business community here Sep 30 when the council indicated that India could receive $41 billion plus from US companies over the next 2-3 years.
Since its inception in 2003 the Vibrant Gujarat Global Investors' Summit has brought together global thought leaders, policy makers, academia, investors and industrialists on a common platform in an effort to showcase India's potential as a business partner, USIBC noted.
USIBC which first participated in Vibrant Gujarat in November 2008 congratulated the Gujarat government "on its continued commitment to hosting this important globally focused event."
aIt looks forward to the valuable insights and relationships the delegation will gain by attending the Summit, the trade body said.
