"I am delighted that the US Business Centres are being established in India."
The first ever US Business Centre in India has opened in Mumbai, India on February 18, 2016.
It was inaugurated by Subhash R Desai (Minister for Industries), Thomas Vajda (US Counsel General), and Dr. Mukesh Aghi (President of the US-India Business Council).
It is a custom built facility designed to house new and early stage US entrants to the Indian market.
Key market entry services from small or medium US companies, universities, non-profit organisations, or trade associations that enter and expand in India, are combined with office facilities.
Market entry specialist Sannam S4 Inc. leads the initiative. USIBC, Citi India, Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces, and JLL support the centre.
Founder and CEO of US Business Centre and Sannam S4, Adrian Mutton, says:
“With the facilities and comprehensive services provided by the US Business Centers and our partners, US organisations can feel much more confident about entering and expanding in India.
“The US Business Centers provide the practical support needed to manage the local challenges an organisation may face when entering and expanding in this dynamic market, therefore ensuring the best chance of success.”
Services available to US organisations through this Centre include accounting, payroll, compliance services, staff, recruitment and HR advisory, sales and business development support, market research and channel development.
Dr. Mukesh Aghi comments on USIBC’s enthusiasm in working with the US to strengthen business relations:
“I am delighted that the US Business Centres are being established in India. The Council is eager to provide support to US small and mid-sized companies, universities, and skills’ providers that are exploring India as a viable investment destination.
“The Business Centre’s integrated support model should make it easier for US organizations to do business in India and achieve greater levels of success. We are delighted to support Sannam S4 in this necessary and timely enterprise.”
It is clear that US President Barack Obama and India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi want to continue to expand US-India border investment and trade, as US Business Centres will be introduced at Stanford University on March 16, 2016.
This will take place during the first of a series of classes titled, A Practical Guide to Doing Business in India, held across the US throughout the year.
