The New Jersey - India Connection

Why New Jersey? New Jersey and India have always had strong economic and cultural connection, making it the perfect fit for Indian companies looking to do business here.

India is our 4th largest trading partner for imports and exports. New Jersey is the top U.S. state for jobs created by Indian companies – totaling over 9,000. New Jersey ranks 1st in the Northeastern U.S. for share of Indian parent companies that start a venture here by constructing new operational facilities (also known as greenfield FDI).

With the second largest Indian-born population in the United States, New Jersey is the proud home to some of America’s most vibrant Indian communities:

  • Towns like Edison and Iselin are beacons of the largest Indian business hubs in the United States
  • The world’s largest Akshardham, a Bochasanvasi Akshar Purushottam Sansthan temple (BAPS), was established in Robbinsville in 2014
  • “Little Gujarat” in Jersey City – also known as India Square – is home to one of the highest concentrations of Asian Indians in the Western Hemisphere
