Event has expired. Registration for this event is no longer available.

India has emerged as an economic powerhouse and an awkward political ally. U.S-India trade and business is burgeoning, with people to people communications so routine that practices such as "yoga" and words such as "guru," and "pandit" are now part of the American lifestyle and lexicon. At the same time, India presents unique problems and challenges. The members of the International Trade Committee and the Asian Affairs Committee invite you to join them and distinguished speakers in an engaging evening over drinks and light refreshments to discuss this new India.
