In partnership with the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry and the Observer Research Foundation, the EastWest Institute will host a delegation of business leaders in New Delhi, India, on June 14-16.

EWI President-elect Cameron Munter, former U.S. Ambassador to Pakistan, will lead the delegation and meet with regional leaders from the corporate and public sectors in an effort to promote political and economic cooperation between Afghanistan, Central Asia, Pakistan and India.  

This mission is the second in a series of visits—following the delegation to Pakistan earlier this year—aimed at advancing trust and stability in the region. The objective is to develop upon the recommendations identified at the November 2014 Istanbul Conference, harnessing the business sector to unlock the economic potential of the region and ultimately lead to a secure and stable Afghanistan.
