Towards positioning India globally and facilitating investments, trade and technical cooperation, including technology and knowledge sharing for achieving the vision of global food and nutrition security, ICFA has conceptualized the mechanism of Joint Business Councils with various countries, regional blocks and continents, involving the key stake-holders towards achieving the above objectives by promoting cooperation, delegation visits, joint studies and conferences. ICFA has already launched India – Africa Joint Business Councils and soon to operationalize India – US, India – France, India – Australia, India- SAARC and other JBCs. A Board comprising of ideally 20 members from India and the country concerned from among the businesses, policy making, think tanks and officials with a chairman and two co-chairs manage the affairs of the JBC. Important stake-holders are invited to log on and register or write to us for co-opting them on the relevant JBCs. Following JBCs are planned to be launched during 2017 - 2018.
US India Business Council is to be launched on 16 Oct, during World Food Summit at Des Moines, USA)
