Tata Group chairman Ratan Tata and Honeywell chairman David Cote would co-chair the reconstituted Indo-US CEO Forum, which would meet on the margins of the Indo-US Summit in Washington next week.

The Indian CEOs would be accompanying Prime Minister Manmohan Singh next week as part of the official delegation. The Prime Minister and US President Barack Obama would be meeting the reconstituted CEOs Forum to get a private sector perspective on how to expand economic cooperation between the two nations.

"Our hope is that the Forum will inform the choices of government leaders, as it has in the past, and thereby enhance our joint competitiveness and ingenuity,” US under secretary of state for political affairs William J Burns said.

There are six new faces from Indian side-- Bharti Group's Sunil Bharati Mittal, SBI chairman OP Bhatt, Venu Srinivisan of TVS Motors, Infosys' S Gopalarishnan, Chanda Kochhar of ICICI Bank, and Preetha Reddy from Apollo Hospitals.

Besides Ratan Tata, the other Indian members of the Forum are Reliance’s Mukesh Ambani, Biocon's Kiran Mazumdar Shaw, Analjit Singh of Max India, Deepak Parikh of HDFC and Ashok Ganguly of Firstsource Solutions and ABP.
