The Insurance, Tax, and Real Estate Committee seeks to be the premier platform for business leaders and their government counterparts in the U.S.–India financial services corridor to deepen the financial markets of both economies. The Committee develops an annual work plan with an advocacy agenda that leverages both the U.S and Indian government engagements.
The Committee holds roundtables and conferences in both the United States and India, leads delegations to meet with policymakers in India to advocate for reforms, and supports the business development objectives of companies seeking to expand their presence in either the U.S. or India.
The Committee works with stakeholders to identify the key priorities for advocacy and reform. In doing so, the Committee leverages the expertise within its members and in turn serves as a central point for information on India and its markets. The Committee also has a Tax Working Group that serves as a platform for tax issues impacting members across all sectors. Finally, the Committee works on tax issues affecting individual members and seeks to provide support and assistance in bringing awareness of the issue and resolution.
