The main motive of this business networking was to promote and strenghten to way export- import between india and ASEAN countries
Delivering his address, Shri Suresh Prabhu, Hon’ble Minister of Commerce, Industry & Civil Aviation reminded that India’s relations with ASEAN countries is much older than the formation of the ASEAN. He felt that ASEAN has already become a role model for other groupings. He further felt that ‘integration of the ASEAN countries resulted in the high economic growth for the region’. As an example of integration, the Minister pointed out the Agreement on sharing the Mekong waters among the member countries.
Speaking at the Event, the current ‘Chair’ of ASEAN, H.E. Mr. Chutintorn Gongsakdi, Ambassador of Thailand said though there were some procedural delays, ASEAN countries are working on ‘connectivity’ by road, rail and air both within the members countries as well as with India.

Shri Manoj K Bharti, Additional Secretary (ED & States), Ministry of External Affairs inter-alia suggested that in order to boost people-to-people connectivity and border trade, ASEAN countries might consider opening consulates or visa offices to facilitate visa for residents of north-eastern States of India. He suggested Guwahati as a possible location. He also suggested that visa-on-arrival for Indians might also be considered by all the ASEAN countries which have not yet extended such facilities.
The presentation by Shri Sundeep Kumar Nayak, IAS, Managing Director of NCDC and Chairman of NEDAC regarding “Cooperatives to Cooperatives Trade – An Effort to Maximize Income of Farmers” was thought provoking. As the full form of MIICCIA (Millennial India International Chamber of Commerce, Industry & Agriculture) suggests, and unlike other Chambers, we are committed to the development of Agriculture, in addition to Commerce and Industry.

Later a delegation and BSM are being planned for China and some ASEAN countries. India has marched forward to become the fastest growing economy in the world. ‘Incredible India’ no longer remains only a national imagination, and that makes MIICCIA a more responsible Chamber of Commerce in the country.

October, 17th MIICCIA New Delhi
On October 16,2018 ,the Millennial India International Chamber of Commerce , Industry and Agriculture ( www.miiccia.com) organised an interactive business seminar on “ India and Latin America -Exploring Business Opportunities -Prospects and Potential” in an entirely unique format where Ambassadors and Commercial Representatives of Latin American embassies in India were invited to share their countries potential and business prospects to a large number of Indian business and industry representatives which was followed by B2B networking and interactions. Some of the Indian companies gave presentations about their strengths and products. Ambassador TS Tirumurti, Secretary (Economic Relations) in the Ministry of External Affairs was the Chief Guest. Mr. GV Srinivas Joint Secretary looking after Latin America and the Caribbean was the Guest of Honour . Several other officials also attended the event.
While informing them about the growing Indian economic profile and exceptional trade and investment opportunities unleashed as a result of ongoing far reaching economic reforms in India by the Prime Minister. Ambassador Anil Trigunayat , President of MIICCIA highlighted the 'Make in India' , Digital India, Start up India and investment of trillions of dollars opportunities in Indian infrastructure sector.He invited the Latin American investors to take part in the Indian enterprise and opportunity for mutual benefit. India’s ease of doing business ranking continues to improve and no wonder India has become a favoured destination for foreign investments. He also highlighted Government of India’s “ Focus Latin America” initiative that has enhanced tremendous outreach to the region that has become a part of its foreign policy paradigm.
India and Latin America have several synergies and large markets that can be explored for the mutual benefit. Not only the two are engaged in bilateral cooperation but also collaborating even in multilateral fora with groupings like Andean Community, MERCOSUR,CARICOM,SICA and CELAC. It was hoped that the two sides will be able to negotiate FTA or RCEP with MERCOSUR with which already a PTA was signed that could provide further boost since our trade and economic potential and cooperation is still way below the desired levels. It could easily be doubled in 5-10 years through a focussed and well-crafted approach .We do collaborate with Brazil in the IBSA and BRICS but have to expand the footprint. Various major companies like Tata, Bajaj, OVL, Essar, Reliance etc are already present. He further added that cooperation including trade and investment in energy, minerals, agriculture, science and technology, education and people to people contacts could lead the way. Since India procures significant quantities of its energy and hydrocarbon requirements from Mexico , Argentina ,Brazil and Venezuela and others from the region could play an important role in our energy security .Similarly they could be our major partners in our food security through cooperation in agriculture as they supply oil seeds and pulses to India.
Mr GV Srinivas underscored that the proverbial distance between Latin America and India has been abridged with extensive cooperation on the ground. He urged the business community and the embassy representatives to realistically assess the potential and focus on those areas. He also recalled the recently held India-Latin America business event in Chile which could be replicated in future. He underlined that the Government was committed to removing any obstacles to trade and investment. He emphasised to strengthening trade, economic and technological cooperation with a view to expanding import and export trade and economic relations.
Ambassadors of Argentina, Colombia, Cuba and Guatemala and Commercial Representatives of Mexico, Brazil and Venezuela also highlighted the opportunities in natural resources, energy sector, tourism and infrastructure in their countries.

They also highly appreciated the Chamber’s focus on the Latin American region and recalled the recent B2B interactions organised for Argentinian and Guatemalan business delegations under the aegis of MIICCIA.
