The report “Indian Roots, American Soil,” is a state-by-state breakdown of tangible investments made and jobs created by 100 surveyed Indian companies doing business in all 50 states, as well as Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. New Jersey, Texas, California, New York and Georgia are home to the most number of workers in America directly employed by Indian companies. New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, California, and Wyoming have the highest foreign direct investment (FDI) from Indian companies.
The surveyed companies also provided data regarding their corporate social responsibility (CSR) and research and development expenditures, which totaled $147 million and $588 million, respectively. The CII survey respondents represent diverse sectors including pharmaceuticals and life sciences, telecommunications, aerospace and defense, financial services, healthcare, materials and manufacturing, tourism and hospitality, engineering and construction, automotive, food and agriculture, energy and information technology.
Through this report, CII has made the effort to shine light on the relatively unknown story of Indian Foreign Direct Investment into the United States and the ways in which it is transforming the bilateral partnership in positive ways.
