The India Ideas Summit to be held on July 21-22, organised by the US India Business Council (USIBC) will be addressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The virtual summit will discuss a wide range of topics including the impact of coronavirus on global supply chain and healthcare collaboration between the two countries.
The event has assembled a high-powered line-up of US-India corridor leaders from across the business, government and society.
“As you know, the theme for this year’s summit, which is a virtual summit, is ‘Building a Better Future’. And so, I think, as we look at the US India relationship, and the importance of this partnership in all of the challenges that we are currently confronting, as well as the world that we hope to see post-COVID.” (sic.)~ Nisha Biswal, President, USIBC
Further, she adds, “We will be talking about a lot of really important themes; everything from healthcare collaboration to, you know, global supply chains and the impact on that as well as how the pandemic has really forced us to rethink how we live, how we work, how we travel. So lots of very interesting and important conversations coming up.”
Biswal informed that PM Modi during his address is expected to share his vision for the importance of the US India relationship and the importance of collaboration between American and Indian industry.
“I expect that the Prime Minister will share his thoughts and his vision for the importance of the US India relationship, the importance of collaboration between American and Indian industry and the opportunities that we can create for both countries as well as for the world,” she added.
The India Ideas Summit will witness the participation of important policymakers and senior executives from both countries. US’s Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Indian External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar and Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will also address the virtual summit next week on building a better future for both the countries and the world, amidst the COVID-19 and China’s aggressive actions.
