Mr. Goyal met with Mastercard CEO Michael Miebach and the co-founder and co-executive chairman of global investment firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts and Co. Henry Kravis. He has shared his opinions regarding the attractive investment opportunities in India, which include infrastructure, manufacturing, and startup businesses.

Later, he spoke about India’s attractive economic potential and the unexplored transformation India is capable of.
Stronger U.S. and Indian trade and the increasing bilateral investments from both countries have added a new contribution and dynamism to the partnership between the two nations.

Earlier, Mr. Piyush Goyal addressed a roundtable conference of the stakeholders from the industry and he opined that tanks and academia at the Council of Foreign Relations.

The interaction has emphasized strengthening the trade between the two respective nations and India’s role as the trusted investment destination in the world. He has further discussed the diverse issues including India’s G20 presidency.

Mr. Piyush Goyal visited the Tata Innovation Center to kick off his engagements in New York situated at Cornell Tech which has a collaborative workforce with experience in corporate offices for technology businesses, startups, and venture capital firms.

He has stated that the Tata Innovation Centre’s project in cutting-edge technology is a strong testimony to the India-U.S bilateral trade, which will increase the productivity and mutual competitiveness between the two nations. He has stated the contributions made by the Indian-American community in expanding the bilateral relationship.

Based on the data stated by the commerce ministry, the bilateral trade in 2021-22 between India and the U.S. stood at 119.42 billion USD as compared to 80.51 billion USD in 2020-21.

Shortcomings in bilateral trade:

Despite India’s increase in trade with the U.S., there are three important aspects to consider. At first, China is rapidly shifting its manufacturing value chain giving rise to more sophisticated goods and organizing a higher-paid workforce in the process. This has resulted in the creation of increasing competitiveness of Chinese high-tech corporations with an increased export in the U.S. markets.

Secondly, the cost of production in china has increased to a level high, so some low-end manufacturers are moving their production units to India. Many valid sources believe that India can become the biggest hub of export giving strong competition to China.

Thirdly, although multinational corporations have shifted some of their supply chains to India, manufacturing companies would not relocate permanently to India. It will take time to maintain a comprehensive relationship between the two countries.
Now is a matter of time how strong the bilateral trade comes out between the respective nations.
