DuPont’s Kullman to Participate in Leadership
DuPont Chair and CEO Ellen Kullman will participate in upcoming leadership discussions in India with a range of global leaders from business, government and academia – focusing on advancing innovation and collaboration to address the growing challenges associated with dramatic population growth.
Ellen will join U.S. President Barack Obama, Indian Prime Minister Singh, and other leaders in New Delhi for the upcoming U.S.-India CEO Forum next week. Ellen also will co-chair the World Economic Forum’s India Economic Summit the following week.
Ellen was appointed to a two-year term on the U.S.-India CEO Forum by President Obama in 2009. Ellen and other Forum members – comprised of two dozen U.S. and Indian CEOs – are expected to discuss opportunities for new partnerships between businesses in the U.S. and India, and how to promote investment and job growth. In addition, the CEOs will provide inputs to the U.S. and Indian governments on concerns of business leaders of the two countries.
“From New Delhi to New York, innovation and collaboration must be catalysts for positive change, especially around promoting free and fair trade, consistent regulatory frameworks and strong public-private partnerships,” Ellen said.
“Dramatic population growth in the decades to come will demand increased food production, decreased dependence on fossil fuels and greater protection of people and the environment. DuPont looks to India and the U.S. as key partners in finding solutions to these global challenges,” Ellen added.
