Chicago is the most dynamic city in the US and the Indian industry must visit the city, said Marshall M Bouton, president of Chicago Council on Foreign Relations, at a CII summit here on Thursday. Mr Bouton is part of a high-level business delegation from Chicago visiting India on the occasion of American Airlines maiden non-stop flight from Chicago to New Delhi.

According to Paul OConnor, executive director, World Business, Chicago is the centre of the North American economy and the East-West nexus between Asia and Europe. It is also the best connection point for air, rail, telecom, distribution etc. He said with the inauguration of American Airlines direct flight between Delhi and Chicago linkages between the countries should get a further boost.
