Mr. Gautam Adani, Chairman, and Founder, of Adani Group, received the USIBC Global Leadership Award, and the award comes on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of India’s freedom makes it even more significant and memorable.
The Global Leadership Award honors the best business leaders from the US and India who have contributed significantly to advancing the US-India relationship. The partnership between the two largest global democracies of India and the United States – will be one of the most defining relationships of this century.
“There can be no disagreement that given the fast-evolving and new emerging global dynamics – the success of the partnership – between the two largest global democracies of India and the United States – will be one of the most defining relationships of this century.”
“A central element of the India-U.S. relationship will need to be a mutual acceptance – that free trade, openness, and integration into each other’s economies – are needed to set the foundation for the range of possibilities that remain unexploited.”
“I would therefore urge the USIBC to facilitate a broader platform that brings together executives from similar industries on both sides on a regular basis. There are a lot of gains to divide with the size of the two economies beginning to converge as we approach 2050.”
“The outcome from these forums would be multiple. It would lay the foundation for a broader business development platform, continuously highlight the policy challenges that must be addressed, as well as get the businesses and policymakers on a common platform.”
