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.
