PM meeting big players in US business

Sridhar Krishnaswami

New York , Sept. 22

ONE of the major scheduled events on Wednesday for the visiting Indian Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh, is his visit to the New York Stock Exchange where he will be making some brief remarks before getting into a luncheon interaction with some of the major players in American business and industry.

"The idea is to get some of the major ones and engage in a conversation'', a senior Indian official remarked making the point that the group assembled for the closed door interaction are "literally the movers and shakers'' and that this is perhaps for the first time that such kind of a "concentration'' is taking place.

The list of participants in the luncheon interaction are the CEOs and Chairman and CEOs of the following corporations: Citigroup, American International Group, Goldman Sachs, The McGraw Hill Companies, JP Morgan Chase, New York Life Insurance, Moody's Corporation, American Express, Dow Jones, Bell Helicopter, Discovery Communications, Cendant Corporation, International Steel Group, Gartner, Ambac Financial Group and SunGard Data Systems.

What is being emphasised ahead of the meeting is that the intention is for the Prime Minister and participants to have a free interaction. A similar meeting is also being planned with Indian American CEOs.
