With great pleasure and humility, I assumed my term as the National President of Indo – Canadian Business Chamber (ICBC) in September 2016. I would like to thank each ICBC president over past 20 years, for establishing and implementing ICBC’s vision of collaborated success for India and Canada. Over years ICBC has been filled with activities, events, government outreach, new members, all aimed at harnessing relationships between India and Canada.
Allow me to outline my particular vision for ICBC:
- Increased membership, pan India by the end of 2017;
- Providing support for the development and growth of an ideal platform for the Companies of India and Canada to explore business opportunities;
- Expanding trade and investment ties between both the countries
India and Canada together can play a much bigger role in the growth of world economy. “100 Smart Cities”, “Clean India”, “Digital India” and “Make in India” pose great opportunities of investment for Canadian Companies and Indian companies have enormous opportunities for export of goods and services. ICBC provides an ideal platform for promotion of bilateral trade between India and Canada, which is expected to grow by leaps and bound in the near future.
ICBC is highly committed to support its members in their business dealings with integrity and professionalism. ICBC works to create and deliver member value through focusing resources on critical areas of engagement that will assure planned smart growth and sustainability for bilateral trade between India and Canada.
With the unstinted support and guidance of the High Commission of Canada we hope to build stronger link between Canada and India over the course of the year ahead.
Over this past year we have seen many changes and we expect that this upcoming year will be no different. Membership in the ICBC means unparalleled access to business opportunities, strategic events, thought leadership, and networking.
Thank each of you for the trust that you have placed in me. Please know that it is my honor and my privilege to do my part, in the service of ICBC.
Counting on our existing and prospective members for unparalleled growth of ICBC in 2017 and years ahead.
Mr. Rakesh Nangia
ICBC President and Managing Partner
