Guwahati: Harish Bhat, a distinguished business leader from the Tata Group, was here in Guwahati on Monday for a dynamic interactive session conducted by the Indian Chamber of Commerce (ICC).

During the session, Bhat fascinated the audience with insights into Tata Group's values and its 156-year success story.  He highlighted the Tata Group's diverse portfolio and discussed the group's major social welfare activities, such as the founding of Tata Cancer Care Hospitals and prestigious academic institutions. The group is setting up a semiconductor manufacturing plant in Assam's Jagiroad with an investment of Rs 27,000 crore. The facility is expected to put the Northeast Indian state on the global map.

Bhat has held several senior roles in the Tata Group over the past thirty years, including managing director of Tata Global Beverages and chief operating officer of the watches and jewellery businesses of Titan Company Ltd.  Bhat stressed the Tata Group's key principles of integrity, quality, and social responsibility, as well as the necessity of maintaining "ethical standards and cultivating an inclusive and innovative culture."

Welcoming Bhat, Sarat Jain, chairman of ICC Assam and Meghalaya state council, emphasised ICC's crucial role in shaping policies for economic development in Northeast India. Additionally, he highlighted the opportunities presented by the Act East Policy of the Indian government and the recent allowance by the Bangladesh government for Indian vessels to use Chittagong and Mongla ports, which could greatly benefit the region.

Praising Bhat for his contributions to literature and journalism, Jain acknowledged his six published books and his role as a popular columnist for leading newspapers. The seminar culminated with an engaging Q&A session, which allowed participants to learn more about the Tata Group's values and culture.
