(About Forum)


NCAER and the Bay Area Council Economic Institute organised a special forum on the Silicon Valley and the Bay Area’s economic ties with India on December 3, 2009 at 10am at the NCAER Committee Room. A new report was presented by the Economic Institute, “Global Reach: Emerging Ties Between the San Francisco Bay Area and India” that documented the historical, cultural, educational, trade and investment links between the two economies, and the interactions that make this a unique partnership and a case study of the new forces that are driving globalisation.  Based on more than two years of research and nearly 200 interviews in both the Bay Area and India, the Institute’s analysis makes a convincing case for the uniqueness of the Bay Area-India connection, and the wide range of opportunities that it presents.
