USINPAC releases #US-#India ‘Business Barometer’

US India Political Action Committee (USINPAC), a leading voice of the Indian American community launched its flagship ‘USINPAC Business Barometer’ conducted by APCO Insight for AUSIB.  The Alliance for US India Business (AUSIB) is leading non-profit trade association that offers a pathway to help your business succeed in the US and India. Founded in 2004, AUSIB continues to be instrumental in building the bridges of business and educational cooperation between the two countries.

Speaking at the event, Mr. Sanjay Puri, Chairman, USINPAC, said, “We instituted this first of its kind survey to gauge the sentiments of the business fraternity in both countries. The U.S.-India business communities are keen to work with each other and the USINPAC Business Barometer is a testimony to this fact. The Indian origin communities in the United States and other countries around the world are enthused with the election of Modi government in India, and are confident that under the new government in India led by PM Modi, the key concern of the business fraternity, i.e. infrastructural issues will be addressed. We estimate that a total investment of about $1.5 trillion is required over the next five years to finance India’s infrastructure needs. U.S. will be a key contributor to this.”
