Indian-American Vivek Lall elected Board member of top US business councils; US-India-Japan business
US-Japan Business Council (USJBC), as well as the US India Business Council (USIBC), have recently announced the joining of US-based Indian-American, Dr Vivek Lall, on its Board of Directors. Considered by many in Washington DC as the industry architect of the US-India relationship role this century, he was unanimously voted onto the board of the USJBC.
Since the turn of the century, US India defence trade has touched $ 20 billion mark. The new global order means India, US and Japan will be working closely on several issues including free-trade, technology and strategic partnership.
Who is Dr Lall?
He is the Chief Executive (CE) of General Atomics Global Corporation based at their headquarters in San Diego, California.
What is the significance of his appointment?
Since the Indo Pacific strategy remains the number one focus of the Pentagon and the Department of State, Dr Lall’s joining the USJBC will further solidify the three-way US-India-Japan business relations. He was inducted, in October 2020, into the Global Board of Directors of the US –India Business Council (USIBC).
Members of the US-Japan Business Council had their 57th Annual US-Japan Business Conference virtually recently. The conference drew out a roadmap on what is to be done for trade in view of the Covid-19 pandemic.
