 (TIP): Indo American Chamber of Commerce of Greater Houston held its 
18th Annual Gala on September 30th, 2017, at Hilton Americas Downtown. 
The event coincided with the 4th Annual US-India
 Partnership day. The chamber has been recognizing this partnership 
since 1999 when India was yet to become the flavor of the future. The 
theme for this year’s Gala was “Partners in Progress”, which was coined 
before the havoc caused by Hurricane Harvey, yet very apt to depict how 
community partnerships have worked in the relief and recovery 
operations.  The chief guest of the evening was India’s Consul General 
Dr. Anupam Ray.

 Executive Director, Jagdip Ahluwalia highlighted this year’s economic 
development through bilateral ties. The new board was introduced next, 
led by President-Elect Swapan Dhairyawan. A video depicting the history 
of the chamber helped the audience appreciate this amazing journey. They
 were encouraged to go through the Gala magazine to get a full picture 
of the Chamber’s history, work and accomplishments over the 18 years.

current President Allen Richards described the 18th year of the Chamber 
as the start of “a new direction”. He highlighted the collaboration with
 other ethnically diverse organizations and the “NexGen” initiative, 
providing opportunities to the younger demographic. The Gala also had 
amazing entertainment provided by singers Skylar Beamon, Sparsh Shah and
 a flash mob.

Patel, CEO and Chairman of Lyondell Basell delivered the keynote. His 
keynote started off with his inspirational life story. He appreciated 
the work the Chamber is doing in creating connections, bringing the two 
countries closer together and advancing knowledge to create opportunity.


also recognized the professional and public service achievements of 
members of the Indo American community. Port Houston Chairman Janiece 
Longoria received the award for the tremendous impact on the economy, 
Dr. Marie Goradia received “Impact on Humanity” award for her efforts 
through Pratham USA; Bal Sareen, CEO of Brask Inc. received the 
“Entrepreneur of the Year” award and Swapnil Agarwal of Karya Management
 received the “Young Entrepreneur of the Year” award. President-Elect, 
Swapan Dhairyawan, delivered the vote of thanks and outlined his plans 
for the coming year.
