The India China Alliance for Cooperation (ICAC), in its ten years of existence has carved out a distinct identity of its own. Set up by Mr. Piyush Bahl, who served a stint in Shanghai, with the Confederation of Indian Industry before launching ICAC in New Delhi, was powered by his vision and commitment to forge reliable, meaningful and trustworthy relationships between key sectors that demonstrated the strengths of both nations. Since his unfortunate demise in 2011, his family has strived to keep the partnerships he had initiated alive and to continue making inroads in areas of mutual cooperation, serving interests of both Chinese and Indian counterparts.

International Student Exchange Programme, 2013 in Beijing: ICAC was India Partner
The India China Alliance for Cooperation (ICAC) facilitated the participation of middle school students from India's prestigious Modern School, New Delhi for the Beijing International Education Exchange (BIEE) Programme in China, 2013.
The programme has been held for three years and has attracted over 2300 teachers and students from 29 countries all over the world, including Turkey, Sweden, USA, Spain, England, Russia, Canada, Vietnam, Japan, Korea as well as India. ICAC has been the India partner for the programme.
The exchange provides fascinating insights into how the Chinese live, what their cultural and historical background is and how Beijing, their capital city, combines the best of the modern with the traditional. Add to this the camp-like feeling with students and teachers from different countries and a plethora or opportunities to share and learn from each other. Read what our participants of 2013; 2012 and 2011 have to say about their experience.
“I was extremely satisfied with the arrangements made by ICAC and the interactions that I had in China. I would be very happy to lend support to the Alliance as it expands its activities.” Prof N K Singh
