He highlighted the strengths and achievements of the Indian economy and the tremendous opportunities that have been opening up as a result for trade and investment. He pointed out that while most of the large U.S. companies were doing business with India, the small and medium sector needed to be engaged more vigorously.
Consul General Gavai informed the audience that the Overseas Citizenship of India Scheme had generated overwhelming response from the Indo-American community. He expressed confidence that the scheme would bring the community even closer to India.

He said ï¿½there could be no better person to do business with than a fellow member of the Chamber. Many of our members are willing to go the extra mile or offer special rates for their fellow members. ï¿½ He also explained that ï¿½The One Benefit of membership is the opportunity for our members to place free business card ads in a special membersï¿½ service directory that the Chamber plans to print 1000 to 2000 copies of and distribute to our members and thru high traffic outlets.ï¿½
