In today’s podcast, Rajan stays in the UK to meet with Mohan Kaul, a champion of international trade, investment and emerging markets and inspiration to Rajan when he was in his twenties!

Mohan shares his own story of how a young child from Kashmir became friends to presidents and prime ministers across the globe and the impact that he’s had in terms of creating a common wealth. It is as inspiring as it is sentimental and a testimony to willpower and travel.

About Mohan Kaul:

A firm believer in making globalisation work for all, Mohan Kaul has led a number of high-level initiatives targeted at investment promotion and strengthening the investment climate, good governance and corporate social responsibility.

Over the past 30 years, he has built an enviable rapport with Presidents and Heads of Governments across continents He has led over 50 high-level initiatives and Forums, involving Heads of Government, Senior Ministers and top Business Leaders, in a number of countries primarily in South Asia and Africa including in countries which had never received FDI before.

These initiatives have resulted in considerable investment in a number of countries including Ghana, India, Sierra Leone, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Uganda, Tanzania, and others.

His focus has been on Mobilizing Investment, building Public-Private Partnerships, reducing the digital divide, WTO market access and trade facilitation and integration of developing countries into the global market.

He strengthen Commonwealth trade linkages recognised by the WTO as an important partner contributing to the liberalisation of trade and leading practical initiatives such as the Boksburg Group on Trade Facilitation.

He has also facilitated links between Commonwealth Countries and the European Union which led to a Commonwealth-EU roundtable led by Baroness Ashton, European Commissioner for Trade and Indian Minister Kamal Nath and attended by Ministers and Business Leaders.

About the Global Indian Series:

Rajan Nazran is the chief chief explorer for the Global Indian Series, the official platform for people of Indian origin (PIO), because let’s face it, we are everywhere!

For almost 15 years we have travelled across the globe covering 58 countries to date whilst exploring the kaleidoscope of our remarkable global community.

Voyaging to the edges of the Amazon, facing Ebola in West Africa, being held hostage in Eastern Europe, tapping rubber in Malaysia, drinking chai with Heads of State and sharing laughter with local fishermen – I have been there, looking for us!

Our purpose is simple, to build a living encyclopaedia of the community and a safe mooring ground for open discussions, whether you are an NRI, Indian Diaspora, person of Indian origin (PIO) or a fan of South Asian anthropology, what we do is bring people and communities together.

We do this by plunging into the human experience of being a person of Indian origin (PIO), taking a second look at the countries we now call home and tackling the conversations we need to know more about.

Through our range of award-winning original content (print, podcasts, events and TV) and fascinating discussions, our impactful stories and platforms have spearheaded national and international conversations that have brought people together.

Our work is featured in global brands including The Indian Express, OWM, Manager, ABC and many more.

One response to “THE MAN WHO CHANGED COMMON-WEALTH: MOHAN KAUL”

  1. I wanted to compose you that bit of note in order to thank you very
    much yet again relating to the striking ideas you have provided on this site.
    It was so generous with people like you to
    allow freely precisely what most of us might
    have made available as an electronic book in making some money for their
    own end, notably considering the fact that you could have tried it in the event
    you wanted. Those techniques likewise worked to provide a fantastic way to fully grasp some people have similar zeal like mine to figure out more when it comes to this matter.
    I am sure there are some more enjoyable periods in the future for many who looked
    at your website.
