Taking US-India economic relations to the next level

Overview

This 2017 joint PwC and Indo-American Chamber of Commerce (IACC) report provides a detailed view into selected key industries and high growth areas, namely smart cities, funding growth, infrastructure, digital, farmtech, hospitality and energy. There is tremendous potential for US companies to invest in India across these sectors and areas. Our joint report discusses industry status, trends and challenges, vision of the future and opportunities for investment. By investing together, US and Indian companies can transfer best practices and knowledge, increase the quality and standard of goods and services, boost bilateral trade and, in doing so, create stronger and more competitive industries together. The time to invest is now!

In 2016, PwC and IACC created a similiar report called ‘Winning together: US and India investment opportunities and synergies'. In this report, we also discussed India-US bilateral trade as a ‘global strategic partnership’ based on shared democratic values and increasing convergence of interests on bilateral, regional and global issues.
