On Thursday, November 30, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo and Indian Minister of Commerce and Industry Piyush Goyal convened a virtual U.S.-India CEO Forum (Forum) meeting as a follow-up to the March 2023 Forum meeting in New Delhi, India. During the meeting, U.S. and Indian CEOs provided both governments with updates on the status of their recommendations on how to advance U.S.-India commercial ties. They also discussed topics pertinent across sectors, including supply chain resiliency, workforce development, regulatory and standards harmonization, and economic collaboration.
