Guwahati, Dec 13 — US Ambassador to India Nancy J. Powell Thursday inaugurated the American Business Corner (ABC) here - the first such in northeast India.

The ABC will be housed by the Indian Chamber of Commerce's (ICC) northeast regional office.

Speaking on the occasion, Powell noted the long history of co-operation between US Commercial Service office at the US consulate in Kolkata, and the ICC which led to setting up of the ABC.

"It's been 20 years now that I visited last and I see Guwahati has undergone sea change in all spheres. I could see the difference while I landed and travelled by road to Guwahati," she said.

"The ABCs are designed such a way to help everyone who wants to trade with the United States," she added.

Showcasing catalogues and business materials of US companies in its library, the ABC is designed to assist US companies in promoting their brand and generating business leads from emerging metropolitan cities in India.

It is also a value added service by industry chambers to their members who seek American technologies and equipment to upgrade production capabilities and become more competitive in global markets.

Speaking on the occasion, M.K. Saharia of the ICC said that they are looking forward to opening two more ABCs at Bhubneswar and Patna soon.
