“ The Tata Group has deepened its engagement across many industries in this diverse region, which has consequently impacted India’s relationship with the Middle East and North Africa,” according to the India Initiative.

The Georgetown University India Initiative was launched in 2015 “to advance research and teaching around India and world affairs and to create a platform for high-level dialogue among American and Indian leaders from government, business, civil society, and the academy.”

It has hosted a number of prominent Indians, including former Union Minister of External Affairs Salman Khurshid and former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, and journalists Rajdeep Sardesai and Sagarika Ghose.
