Joint Statement by Telangana IT and Industries Minister, K. T. Rama Rao and U.S. Consul General Katherine Hadda
Hyderabad: We are delighted that Hyderabad will be the site of the 2017 Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES).
As NITI Aayog CEO Kant and Chargé d’Affaires MaryKay Carlson noted in their announcement, the GES is the preeminent annual gathering of emerging entrepreneurs, investors, and business leaders from around the world, and Hyderabad is the ideal location for such a gathering. In addition to being a global IT center and India’s startup capital, Hyderabad – and the State of Telangana – has a long and proud history of fostering U.S.-India commercial and entrepreneurship partnerships.
This year’s theme, “Women First, Prosperity for All,” underscores the critical role women play in accelerating global growth and opportunity.
We look forward to working with our respective governments to help make this summit a great success.
