There are large no. of Indian scientists, engineers, technologists, economists, management executive and so on, are members of various groups and contribute in a large way through comments, articles, engineering, industrial and business informations.Thus contribute immensely for technical, industrial and commercial and developmental knowledge. CEO shall note this and may interact with the valued Indian members of LinkedIn.
