Roundtable on Indian Investment

This event, hosted by the Wilson Center in partnership with NASSCOM, will mark the release of new research produced by IHS Markit, on the impact of the India-centric global services industry across the American economy.

Global services information technology companies with significant operations in India play an important role in the U.S. innovation ecosystem. They have created economic opportunity and growth for American businesses, and jobs for American citizens.  However, the role of this sector in the American economy has often generated concerns in the United States. Are these concerns valid, or are they misplaced? This new research, the first-ever exhaustive study of its kind, examines the true economic impact of global services IT companies in the United States.
