About the U.S.-India Business Council:
Formed in 1975 at the request of the U.S. and Indian governments, the U.S.-India Business Council is the premier business advocacy organization, comprised of more than 300 top-tier U.S. and Indian companies advancing U.S.-India commercial ties. The Council is the largest bilateral trade association in the United States, with liaison presence in New York, Silicon Valley, and New Delhi.
The Council’s primary mission is to serve as the direct link between business and government leaders, forge consensus, and play a proactive role by being the voice of industry on both sides, thereby enabling growth in trade and investment between India and the United States.

Mission
The Council’s mission is to promote bilateral trade relations between India and the United States through pro-growth policies that will advance commercial partnerships from $100 billion to $500 billion by the end of the decade.

Vision
The Council aims to create an inclusive bilateral trade environment between India and the United States by serving as the voice of industry, linking governments to businesses, and supporting long-term commercial partnerships that will nurture the spirit of entrepreneurship, create jobs, and successfully contribute to the global economy.

Work and Policy Priorities
The Council comprises executive committees covering every major business sector— Aerospace & Defense, Digital Economy, Energy and Environment, Financial Services, Food & Agriculture, Real Estate and Infrastructure, Professional Services, Media & Entertainment, and Life Sciences. Policy advocacy positions are developed in collaboration with these committees, which are chaired by senior executives.
Current Council-wide policy advocacy priorities include the following:
  • Commitment to Improving India’s Ranking in the Ease of Doing Business Index
  • Commitment to tax clarity and consistency in India
  • Commitment to a robust intellectual property regime
