After two years working toward authorization to open a liaison office in India, the U.S. Grains Council (USGC) is happy to announce the Ministry of Corporate Affairs in India granted the Council a registered place of business certificate on Sept. 23. With a belief in the long-term growth trend for feed grains and ethanol in India, the Council and its members felt it was important to have a presence in the market to achieve its long-term goals there. Alejandra Danielson Castillo, USGC’s regional director for South Asia, expressed her pleasure over the announcement, saying, “I am very excited about the road ahead. We have spent the last few years growing our relationships with industry and government leaders and have crafted focused messages and narratives to solidify our credibility as reliable centers of expertise for feed and fuel purposes in the market. I especially want to thank those at the Kansas Corn Commission who have supported our work and remain committed to expanding the market in India.”
