About USINPAC LNG Initiative
The LNG (Liquified Natural Gas) – Initiative is USINPAC’s project to decisively influence US policy on expediting LNG exports to India and thus help foster a long-term collaboration in LNG trade between the two countries. Expedited exports of LNG from the US could help set the stage for stronger trade relationships with India. The United States India Political Action Committee (USINPAC) has been a prominent voice on the Capitol Hill in endorsing US LNG exports to India. USINPAC was a significant contributor to the hearing on US LNG exports, organized by Congressman Ted Poe, Member of House Committee on Foreign Affairs and Chairman, Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation, and Trade.
