The conference will feature distinguished international, national and regional speakers and highlight the benefits Indian companies bring to Washington state’s economy and investments flowing from the state to India.

Thanks to a generous gift from the RoundGlass Foundation, SU will also launch the RoundGlass India Center at the conference.

Why it matters: The strategic partnership between India and the United States to promote global security, trade and investment has never been stronger. Seattle has become a center for philanthropic activities and leading social entrepreneurs from the region will discuss the social impact of their initiatives. Seattle-Setu showcases Seattle’s pivotal role in building economic and political bridges with India and Seattle University’s engagement with this important work.

About the conference: Distinguished legal experts from both India and the United States will share valuable insights on facilitating cross-border business partnerships. Keynotes include:

  • Representative Pramila Jayapal, U.S. House of Representatives, Washington's 7th Congressional District
  • Nancy Izzo Jackson, Deputy Assistant Secretary for India Bureau of South and Central Asian Affairs
  • Dr. Sasmit Patra, Member of Parliament (Rajya Sabha)
