At a star-studded reception event at the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C. on July 14, 2015, representatives from more than 20 Indian companies with operations across the length and breadth of the United States came together to demonstrate their strong and growing commitment to the United States. Engaging Senators, Congressmen, U.S. businesses, Trade Policy experts and academics, the companies unified to deliver the message that their companies are helping to create wealth, value and jobs for the U.S. economy.
The reception was organized under the banner of the Confederation of Industry-India Business Forum (CII-IBF).
A report “Indian Roots, American Soil”, by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) in partnership with Grant Thornton (GT) was released on the occasion. The report captures the state-by-state break-down of tangible investments made and jobs created by 100 Indian companies doing business in the United States, showcasing their geographical sprawl and positive impact on the U.S. economy.
