Two meetings for seeking the Indian diaspora’s business engagement with India will be held in Indonesia this week.
The first of these Diaspora Engagement Meets is scheduled for Tuesday in Medan, and the second will be held in the capital Jakarta on July 18, the organisers Overseas Indian Facilitation Centre (OIFC) announced here Monday.
The OIFC, a public-private partnership between the Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs and the Confederation of Indian Industry, was formed specifically to facilitate the economic engagement of the Indian diaspora with India.
The objective of these engagement platforms is to acquaint Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) and Persons of Indian Origin (PIOs) with the various trade and investment opportunities in India.
“A significant section of the Indian diaspora is keenly evaluating opportunities of economic engagement with India,” said Sujata Sudarshan, CEO, OIFC.
“OIFC is positioned to serve as a single-point contact for facilitation in areas of information, economic engagement, knowledge partnering and mentoring,” she added.
India and Indonesia have shared two millennia of close cultural and commercial contacts, and according to Sudarshan about 150 delegates representing 10,000 NRIs and over 80,000 Indonesians of Indian origin comprising of professionals and mid-size entrepreneurs are expected to participate in the meets.
OIFC has engaged with over 6,650 overseas Indians through 23 such Diaspora Engagement Meets and business forums held in Africa, the Caribbean, Europe, the Middle-East, North America and Southeast Asia, the statement said.
The next diaspora business meet will be at the forthcoming Regional Pravasi Divas scheduled at Sydney (Australia) in November this year.
