|Washington, DC. Just months after its historic grassroots shuttle diplomacy visit to India on behalf of the U.S.-India Civilian Nuclear Agreement, the U.S. India Political Action Committee (USINPAC) leads a delegation of prominent business leaders, entrepreneurs, political activists, and professionals from the Indian-American community to India for high-level business and political meetings. The fifth annual USINPAC delegation led by Chairman Sanjay Puri will arrive in Bangalore on January 2nd, and complete its visit in New Delhi from January 7th through January 9th.
Chairman Puri describes the annual USINPAC delegation, as a singular opportunity for leaders in the Indian-American community to meet and dialogue with business and political leaders in India at the highest levels. He goes on to say, we have always received the best of welcomes by government officials, leaders of the opposition, and top executives of Indiaâs most important companies. Chairman Puri concludes, this kind of welcome for Indian-Americans simply underscores the commitment in India to building and maintaining bridges with the Indian Diaspora and that communityâs importance in advancing the U.S.-India relationship.
