Please join us for an annual event which focuses on the U.S.-India business corridor. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Government in India have been taking steps to boost sentiment and revive the country’s economy, which has led to renewed optimism among the population. The Government is expected to submit its budget to the Indian Parliament on February 29th. This will be a keenly watched event since it is likely to provide guidance on the Government’s thought process for the next few years.
