U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo Announces New Appointments to the U.S.-India CEO Forum


Today, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo announced the appointment of 19 new U.S. CEO members of the U.S.-India CEO Forum (Forum), which she chairs with Indian Minister of Commerce and Industry Piyush Goyal. Secretary Raimondo has also appointed James Taiclet, chairman, president, and CEO of Lockheed Martin, to serve as the U.S. private sector co-chair. Taiclet will organize and lead the private sector members and coordinate with his Indian counterpart to deliver recommendations to both governments.

“I am pleased to announce the appointment of new members to the U.S. section of the U.S.-India CEO Forum,” said Secretary Raimondo, “The Forum is a critical channel through which our two governments receive invaluable private sector input to sharpen our shared approach on issues at the heart of the U.S.-India commercial relationship.”
