We have just confirmed two very special speakers for a special event at TiE on Tuesday, February 28 at 6pm: George Perkovich and Charles Gauvin of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. CEIP, a non-profit, is the premier think tank dedicated to advancing cooperation between nations and promoting active international engagement by the United States.

The US-India Relationship : Why Should an Entrepreneur Care?

George Perkovich from the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, the leading global think tank, will discuss major issues in the US-India relationship, focusing on the 2005 nuclear agreement between the two countries and using the agreement and its aftermath to explicate the complexities of the US-India strategic dialogue, which encompasses such matters of concern to entrepreneurs as economic development and poverty alleviation, counterterrorism, trade policy, and climate change. Joining Perkovich will be Carnegie chief development officer Charles Gauvin, who will briefly discuss Carnegie’s plan to launch a regional center in New Delhi as a critical component of its global network.

Founded in 1910, CEIP has centers in Washington DC, Moscow, Beijing, Beirut and Brussel. After having met with the Prime Minister and other officials, they now plan to open a center in India. This session will be a great chance to hear about major issues in the US-India relationship from preeminent experts. It will also be an opportunity to provide feedback on CEIP's plans for the New Delhi center.
