FCC Chair Ajit Pai lauds launch of Indian American International Chamber Of Commerce NY chapter

NEW YORK. From the Indian character Apu in The Simpsons in 1989 to the ubiquitous presence of Indians in high places in every field of endeavor today, Indian-Americans have come a long way, noted Ajit Pai, chairman of the Federal Communications Commission.

Pai was speaking at the Nov. 6, 2019, launch of the North East New York Regional Chapter of the Indian American International Chamber of Commerce (IAICC) held at India’s Consulate in the Big Apple.

“As we all know, the world’s oldest democracy and its largest share common values and strategic interests. I’m grateful for this opportunity to help further the important relationship between the United States and India,” Pai said.

India’s Consul for Commerce at the Consulate Manoj Kumar Mohapatra, was Special Guest of Honor at the event. The Consulate’s ballroom was packed with a large number of business leaders and others, a press release from IAICC, said. Many others interested in attending could not be accommodated due to space constraints.

Chairman Pai recounted the growth and achievements of the Indian-American community, including his own life experiences in his speech. The Indian-American population has grown from about 800,000 in 1989 to over 4.5 million today, he noted.(UPDATED ON NOVEMBER 9TH, 2019)
