Purnima Voria, founder and CEO of the National U.S.A.-India Chamber of Commerce, hosted Jagat Shah and his wife Rupal as the couple traversed across 35 states and 35 cities seeking business relationships with India. Their mentors on Road U.S.A. partners include the U.S. Department of Commerce, Start-Up India, the government of India, Etihad Airways and others.
Jagat, M.B.A., C.M.C., is the founder and president of Global Network, which promotes international trade. India has 1.3 billion potential buyers, a massive world marketplace.
The U.S. road trip started in Boston June 4 and will end Sept. 14 in New York City after 115 business meetings across America.
Jagat met with local business leaders at a dinner session hosted by National U.S. India Chamber of Commerce President/CEO Purnima Voria and her daughter Rakhi, who is chief of staff to the VP of Microsoft Worldwide Sales in Redmond, Wash.
Shah presented a brief overview of his country and India’s interest in sharing business relationships with U.S. companies and individuals. He said automotive, biotech, chemicals, construction, defense, electrical machinery, textiles, media and entertainment and tourism are the best business prospects in Indian commerce and development.
He said there is opportunity for U.S. companies to benefit from such Indian government initiatives as Smart Cities, Digital India, Start Up India and Skill India. He also is working to connect American women with Indian women for joint business opportunities.
Indian business leaders are also interested in investing in U.S. business firms where joint cooperation can work for both countries.
