US-India Conference Brings Global Leaders to Haas

A group of C-level executives and economic and government leaders —including Google X CEO Mike Cassidy, Infosys CEO Vishal Sikka, and India’s Ambassador to the U.S. Arun Singh—will explore India’s growing role in the global economy at the US-India Conference next month at Berkeley-Haas.

The invitation-only conference, to be held July 8 at Andersen Auditorium, is co-sponsored by the Garwood Center for Corporate Innovation and the All India Management Association.

The event builds on the success of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s successful visit to Silicon Valley last September.

While collaboration between the US and India countries is well established in the information technology sector, there’s great potential in emerging areas such as digital infrastructure, e-commerce, clean energy, defense, healthcare, smart infrastructure & urbanization, education and skill development, says Solomon Darwin, executive director of the Garwood Center.

“India is growing faster than any other nation in the world and it is creating a great opportunity for US firms to accelerate their markets to the subcontinent,” Darwin says. “We’re so proud to be hosting the first US-India conference at Berkeley-Haas.”
