Andrew Liveris, chairman and CEO, The Dow Chemical Company, was presented with the 2017 Global Leadership Award from the US-India Business Council (USIBC).

The award was presented to Liveris and Adi Godrej, chairman, Godrej Group, by John Chambers, chairman, USIBC, and executive chairman, Cisco, during USIBC’s 42nd Annual Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C.

The Summit is a prestigious event gathering senior business executives and high-ranking political officials, including Vice President Mike Pence. The award recognises honourees for creating inclusive business environments, integrating India in the global supply chain, and advancing core values such as manufacturing, innovation, and scale in tough market conditions.

“On behalf of Dow employees around the world who work every day to strengthen the US-India partnership to create mutually-beneficial, sustainable value, I am honoured to accept this award,” said Liveris.

“Advanced manufacturing technologies from Dow and other partners have a pivotal role to play as Prime Minister Modi continues to transform the dynamic Indian economy, including economic diversification, sustainable growth, and innovation,” added Liveris.

This event aligned with Prime Minister Modi’s first meeting with President Donald Trump in Washington, DC, to discuss bilateral partnership and common goals of promoting cooperation on trade and economic partnership. Liveris’ recognition reflects his leadership on core US-India political goals, including mutual interest in promoting more value-add domestic manufacturing.

Through President Trump's ‘Manufacturing Jobs Initiative’, Liveris is working to help identify new ways to spur innovation, revitalise the US manufacturing sector, and drive economic growth and prosperity.

To this end, he has led Dow to collaborate with governments on Advanced Manufacturing Plans, including co-chairing the manufacturing committee of the USIBC, which promotes specific areas to progress Prime Minister Modi’s ‘Make it in India’ initiatives.

Past USIBC Global Leadership Award honourees include: Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO, Amazon; Dilip Shanghvi, founder and managing director, Sun Pharmaceuticals; Indra Nooyi, chairman and CEO, PepsiCo; and Shobhana Bhartia, chairperson and editorial director, Hindustan Times Group.
