Speaker: Ambassador David Mulford, former US Ambassador to India, Vice Chairman International of Credit Suisse

Location: Room A130, College Building

City welcomes Ambassador David Mulford to give a talk on his new book 'Packing for India. A Life of Action in Global Finance and Diplomacy'.

Ambassador David Mulford is Vice Chairman International of Credit Suisse. He rejoined Credit Suisse in March of 2009 after spending five years as US Ambassador to India. Ambassador Mulford came to India in early 2004, at a time when India - US relations were undergoing a dramatic shift and the strategic partnership between New Delhi and Washington was gaining momentum as the two sides began working more closely together on an unprecedented range of issues.
 
Ambassador Mulford negotiated the US-India Civil Nuclear Initiative from March 2005 through its final agreement as The United States -India Nuclear Cooperation Approval and Non-proliferation Enhancement Act in October 2008. In 2007 the US Department of State awarded Ambassador Mulford the Sue M. Cobb Award for Exemplary Diplomatic Service in recognition of his extraordinary efforts as a non-career ambassador in using private sector leadership and management skills to make a significant impact on US - India bilateral relations.
 
Before being nominated as the US Ambassador to India, Dr. Mulford served as Chairman International and Member of the Executive Board of Credit Suisse, based in London.  Dr Mulford was Under Secretary and Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury for International Affairs during 1984 to 1992. He served as the senior international economic policy official at the Treasury under Secretaries Regan, Baker and Brady. Among the highlights of Dr. Mulford's responsibilities and accomplishments at the Treasury Department include: US Deputy for coordination of economic policies with other G-7 industrial nations; Head of the Administration's Yen/Dollar negotiations with Japan; the Administration's senior advisor on financial assistance to Russia and other states of the former Soviet Union; leadership of the Administration's international debt strategy, and the development and implementation of the Baker / Brady Plans and President Bush's Enterprise Initiative for the Americas.
 
Dr Mulford received a Doctor of Philosophy degree from Oxford University, an MA in Political Science from Boston University and a BA in Economics, cum laude, from Lawrence University in Appleton, WI.
 
Dr Mulford is a member of the Council of Foreign Relations.
