WASHINGTON (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 25th September, 2021) The United States and India will be co-hosting the fourth annual Indo-Pacific business Forum in late October, the White House said in a fact sheet on US-India global leadership released on Friday.

"On October 28-29, 2021, the United States and India will co-host the fourth annual Indo-Pacific Business Forum (IPBF), which will bring together leaders in government, industry, media and non-profits from across the Indo-Pacific," the White House said.
