Our global headquarters in New Delhi is complemented by our network of local offices and chambers – providing a seamless service to members and stakeholders wherever you are in the world.
People of Indian Origin constitute the largest diaspora in the world. As per the Indian Ministry of External Affairs there are approximately 30.8 million Indian diaspora residing outside India.
People of Indian Origin are heads of state and governments, leaders of political parties, Cabinet ministers and part of ruling establishments in all parts of the world. Persons of Indian Origin include business leaders such as CEOs of Google, Microsoft and Pepsi.
Indian diaspora has many organizations in all parts of the world. However, these associations are mostly local, sub-national or national. These organizations do not have footprint in India or other regions of the world. PIOCCI seeks to bridge that gap. PIOCCI has chapters in all Indian states. PIOCCI offers Indian diaspora a bridge to do business in India as also around the world.
