Confederation of Indian Industry released a study “Indian Roots, American Soil: A Look at Indian Companies in the U.S. Economy” reporting that India-based companies were responsible for saving thousands of jobs in the U.S. in recent years and have continued to hire locally wherever they have put down roots. Indian demand and Indian investment are already fuelling jobs in many countries overseas, and as such India’s economic transformation represents a huge opportunity for trade and investment. This report provides an overview of the contributions that Indian firms are already making to employment generation, investments and community engagement in the US. This is the untold story of Indian companies'''''''' presence and involvement in the US economy, and society. However, the survey findings and company profiles presented here are only illustrative examples of a much more comprehensive economic relationship that is only just beginning to take-off.
As the centre of gravity of the global economy shifts towards Asia, India, as an open, democratic society, and free market economy can provide the United States with a market and with cross-border economic linkages while continuing to contribute in substantive ways to the domestic American economy. The survey results and company profiles in this report should be read in that context, as the harbinger of the transformative economic partnership between the world’s two largest free market democracies.
