BANGALORE: The United States Indian American Chamber of Commerce (USIACC) has opened its India headquarters in Bangalore.

The USIACC, which was started in 2004 in Washington DC, has a mandate to accelerate trade and investment between the two countries strengthening relationships between Indian and U.S. businesses.

In the past two years the Chamber has succeeded in building these partnerships and entered into a dialogue with leading business associations in the U.S. and India, liaising with government representatives in both countries. V. Gopal Krishnan represents the USIACC in India.

K V Kumar, National Chairman, USIACC said, "We are delighted to set up our Indian headquarters in Bangalore. Through our offices here the USIACC hopes to further enable Indian and American enterprises in forging business partnerships as well as to work with governments and related agencies in both countries, creating more conducive business ecosystems."

USIACC has also signed MoUs with the U.S. Small Business Administration, the U.S. Departments of Energy, Agriculture, Interior, Environmental Protection Agency and the Indian Merchants’ Chamber in Mumbai.

“Whether it is from New York to New Delhi or from Boston to Bangalore, business and political leaders in the U.S. have an eye on India.

In these unprecedented times in the history of Indo-U.S. relations, the Chamber hopes to be able to serve the business community toward fostering trade and investment,” Bharat Bhargava, National President, USIACC said.
