WASHINGTON, March 29, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Meera Shankar, India's Ambassador to the United States will kick off an event tomorrow afternoon on Indian investment in the United States.  Entitled Indian Roots, American Soil, this public seminar will feature presentations from four leading Indian companies.  India's well-deserved reputation as a hi-tech dynamo sometimes masks the diversity of Indian business, diversity that shows up in the array of sectors represented by Indian investments in the United States.  

To illustrate that point, tomorrow's speakers are from Welspun Tubular in Little Rock, Arkansas, which manufactures larges pipes; Ranbaxy in Princeton, New Jersey, a major pharmaceutical company; Wipro Technologies in Mountain View, California and several other U.S. locations; and Essar Minerals America, formerly Trinity Coal Corporation of Scott Depot, West Virginia.  The event is being presented jointly by the Global Business Dialogue and the Confederation of Indian Industry.

Registration and other details are available on the Global Business Dialogue website,, or by calling the GBD at (202) 463-5074.  There is no charge for press or U.S. government staff.
