Powerful group of US CEOs meet Modi, raise concerns with growth in India
As the U.S.-China trade fight drags on, a group of powerful U.S. CEOs met with India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi behind closed doors in New York.
The opportunity to expand into India is so great that top executives including J.P. Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon, Bank of America CEO Brian Mohniyan, IBM CEO Ginny Rommetty and Blackstone’s Steve Schwarzman were among 36 other executives who sat down with Modi, CNBC reported.
Nisha Biswal, president of the U.S. India Business Council told CNBC after the meeting that “it was a really good conversation. “I mean you have some of the biggest CEOs in America. The prime minister gave almost two hours of time and listened to a lot of the ideas as well as issues, and I think people were quite candid about some of the things they think India needs to do, and he was very receptive to hear those.”
