Nexsen Pruet's Morgan Crapps quoted on the growing relationship between India and the Carolinas
November 9, 2017
Recently, the Upstate Alliance posted an article on their blog about the economic relationship between the United States and India, a relationship that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi called "a defining partnership for the 21st century."
In South Carolina, this relationship has been highlighted by several trade missions to India in recent years, as well as the opening of the South Carolina Department of Commerce's India office. (Former) Governor Nikki Haley, now Ambassador Haley, participated in the 2014 delegation visit to India.
Nexsen Pruet attorneys Morgan Crapps and Tushar Chikhliker have been a part of several South Carolina delegations to India, including the 2014 mission with Haley. Many of Crapps' observations on the relationship between the two countries are included in the Upstate Alliance's article. Below, please find a selection of highlights from Crapps.
Making Business the Mission
Crapps, who focuses on bringing investment into the state, says “there are lots of projects that are coming from India to the Southeast, and we are right on the tip of hopefully seeing a lot of activity. There are many projects in the works right now, and more Indian companies who are very seriously looking at operations here. South Carolina has been lucky to leverage (former) Gov. Haley’s leadership and connections within India; it has opened doors for our businesses to expand and our economy to grow.”
Tushar Chikhliker focuses his practice on economic development and public finance where he assists his clients in negotiating and implementing financial transactions aimed at sparking new success, or bolstering established success, in the South Carolina communities where they choose to invest.
