Janet Walsh and five New York Rotarians are embarking on the first New York-Bangalore business exchange. The group was hosted at a gala dinner at the home of the Indian Counsul General of New York. The purpose of the trip is to develop a deeper understanding of the business and cultural environment of the two countries. The team will be hosted by the Rotary community in Bangalore. The group will spend time with Infosys and Toyota and tour the region. Bangalore is well known as the technology capital of India. Birchtree Global’s team have set up businesses in Bangalore and have been pleased to see their client’s grow and develop in this location.
Later this year, Bedford-Armonk and other NY Rotary chapters will host guests from Bangalore to the New York City region. It is anticipated that this group will lead the development of future exchanges around the globe.
