About Event





At a time when the world is combating a formidable health and economic crisis due to the worldwide outbreak of COVID-19, the real consequences in terms of tragic loss of lives and livelihoods are hard to ascertain.Varied containment policies across most countries, sealing of international borders, localised and nationwide lockdowns to restrict the spread of COVID-19 have resulted in a complete hiatus in global commercial and economic activity.

As an apex industry body, ASSOCHAM is fully committed to support the Government of India in its commitment to help restore momentum
and resume commercial activity - both domestically and internationally, as countries across the globe are gradually lifting lockdown restrictions.

As part of our international outreach, we are happy to invite you to An Exclusive ASSOCHAM Interaction: A Conversation with H.E. Mr. Taranjit Singh Sandhu, Ambassador of India to the United States of America.

USA is India’s Comprehensive Global Strategic and Biggest Trading Partner. Bilateral trade in goods and services grew by more than 10% per annum in the last two years to reach US$ 142 billion in 2018. Before the outbreak of the global COVID-19, experts projected bilateral trade could range between USD 283 billion and USD 327 billion by 2025.

Expected outcomes of the webinar include:
Ø  Identification of key issues and nature and scale of disruption in commercial and economic activity due to global COVID-19 outbreak.
Ø  Recommendations on how industries on both sides can overcome the disruptions as they prepare to resume trade and commerce.
Ø  Insights on new elements in (commodities, goods and services), and factors such as logistics & supply chain diversifications that may reshape the bilateral trade and investment scenario in the post-COVID-19 India-US engagement.
Ø  Recommendations for a roadmap to attract US companies looking to exit from China.
