The US-India Strategic Partnership Forum (USISPF) is honored to lead a delegation comprising over 35 Fortune American companies, including Salesforce, Abbott, Blackstone, HSBC, UPS, Micron, Cisco, SHRM, and others which have plans to increase their investments in Gujarat, India. The companies are also eagerly exploring opportunities to build on the flagship Gujarat International Finance Tec-Cit (GIFT) City’s economic landscape.

This delegation was led by USISPF President and CEO Dr. Mukesh Aghi. The delegation of 35 Fortune American companies interacted with Gujarat Chief Minister, Bhupendra Patel in a roundtable meeting on behalf of the hosting state for the global summit.

“Had a fruitful meeting with the delegation of USISPF. Showcased the potential of GIFT IFSCA and the investment opportunities in this smart city,” said CM Patel on X.

“USA is Gujarat’s major export destination. Also, more than 120 US companies have established their base in Gujarat currently,” he added.

USISPF was the partner organization for the Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit 2024 from January 10th to 12th, 2024, in Gandhinagar.

The focus areas for the engagement included leveraging India’s burgeoning momentum in the hi-tech manufacturing space, particularly in avenues of semiconductors and chip manufacturing, as well as critical areas of energy transition, chemicals, industrial manufacturing, aerospace, and defense.

Dr. Mukesh Aghi, President and CEO of USISPF on the occasion said, “It’s wonderful to be back in Gujarat and an honor for us at USISPF to lead a delegation of American companies to invest and contribute to the development of Gujarat, a state with a strong entrepreneurial spirit. Vibrant Gujarat Summit is a flagship program of the Government of Gujarat, and an investor summit whose success was personally spearheaded by Prime Minister Modi during his Chief Ministerial days and it’s commendable how far the summit has come in little over two decades. The tenth edition accentuates the development and socio-economic growth in the western Indian state that epitomizes India’s entrepreneurial spirit and can-do attitude.”

As per USISPF, it remains committed to strengthening the economic ties between the United States and India, and its participation in the Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit 2024 reflects our dedication to fostering meaningful partnerships and driving innovation in both nations, especially with deeper engagement at the state level.
