Leaders from both government and business sectors not only celebrated the grand launch of these chapters but also addressed important issues such as sustainable economic growth, threats from climate change, inclusion of women in global economy, and women in decision making processes at different levels of leadership. The chief guest and speakers also commended Kumar’s initiatives and implementation plans.

Chief guest Lt. Gov. Kounalakis, who is also the California’s representative for International Affairs and Trade Development, said: “California and India share much in common. Together, we will build on our partnership to create inclusive and sustainable economic growth while also collaborating in the fight against climate change, which threatens us all. Additionally, today’s launch of the Forum on Women in Business and Leadership will ensure that women’s participation in communal, national, and global climate decision-making processes are part and parcel of our efforts. Women’s leadership is essential to the development of any mitigation and resilience strategy that India and California co-create.”

Another speaker, Mayor Schaaf said, “I proudly stand with our California female leaders who are deeply committed to inclusion, diversity and economic development across all the strata of our society, and specifically in my Oakland. I wish the endeavor continued success.”

During his address, Ambassador Panda said that, “we are now on the threshold of a qualitative transformation in our bilateral engagement and California has that special X-factor to fast track this process”.

Kumar said that his mission is to use all available resources through IAICC to promote and foster economic development between US-India together with the rest of the world for the benefit of all. Dr Nandini Tandon, member of IAICC Executive Board and Western Region Chair said, “We are at an exciting juncture with stronger US-India ties and increasing influence of women in the new era of global economy.”
