Seattle-Setu is scheduled to be held just prior to the G20 gathering of global leaders in New Delhi on Sept 9
Seattle University is hosting Seattle-Setu on Wednesday, Sept. 6, 2023, a conference that showcases what the University says is Seattle’s “pivotal role in building economic and political bridges with India.” Seattle-Setu is scheduled to be held just prior to the G20 gathering of global leaders in New Delhi on Sept. 9.
According to organizers, the strategic partnership between India and the United States to promote global security, trade, and investment has never been stronger.
“As both India and the United States struggle with common challenges – such as climate change and threats to our democratic institutions – there is a great deal that we can learn from one another,” Eduardo Peñalver, Seattle University’s president, said.
“Our hope is that the Seattle-Setu conference will highlight the importance of India to this region and position Seattle University as a convenor for conversations about India and U.S.-India relations and as a bridge between the greater Seattle community and the world’s largest democracy,” .
The conference will highlight the benefits Indian companies bring to Washington state’s economy and investments flowing from the state to India. Seattle-Setu will bring together a variety of high-level speakers including elected leaders in US like Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal, D-Washington, and legal experts, philanthropic organizations, social entrepreneurs and other business representatives from India.
