Message from the Chairman

CII and Chairman, International Policy Council
As India continues to attract the attention of the world, CII endeavor to strengthen India's international engagement globally and also work towards making CII the first port of call for overseas delegations that wish to engage with India and for Indian industry that wish to access traditional and emerging markets overseas.
The primary goal of the CII International Policy Council is to undertake activities to connect Indian business with global business. The council also works towards developing market access for Indian exporters; identifying and addressing the needs of the small sector to make them more competitive; promoting cooperation with counterpart organizations; adopting a proactive and partnership approach with foreign governments on various international issues concerning the Indian economy among others.
CII International works very closely with the Ministry of External Affairs, the Ministry of Commerce and Industry and the Indian embassies / mission's overseas for creating conducive policies and procedures for trade and investment. We also works very closely with the foreign embassies / missions in India, international institutions / multilateral agencies, think tanks and the various universities.
Our International work is supported by nine overseas offices in Australia, Bahrain, China, Egypt, France, Germany, Singapore, USA and UK that helps us to disseminate vital information related to markets and joint venture possibilities to both Indian and foreign companies.
We on regular basis organize International Events, Exhibitions, Seminars and Meetings with visiting Heads of State Government, decision-makers, networking sessions with counterpart organisations, multilateral and academic institutions and other policy making bodies as a part to build strong Trade and Investment relationship between India and rest of the world.
