GOPIO was founded at the First Global Convention of People of Indian Origin in New York in 1989. The initial thrust of GOPIO was to globally network the widely spread PIOs in large number of countries. GOPIO has now set its priorities in pooling our resources, both financially and professionally, for the benefit of PIOs and for the countries they come from.

There are over 30 million people of Indian origin (PIO) living outside India. Most of the PIOs have become highly successful in business and profession. When their professional expertise and financial resources are to be pooled together, it will benefit not only people of Indian origin but also their country of residence and India.

GOPIO, the Global Organisation of People of Indian Origin visualises the International PIO Community as an organised and dynamic group. The People of Indian Origin (PIOs) are one among the main Diasporas in the world. GOPIO promotes the well being of PIOs with the main objective of enhancing thier socio economic growth in this era of a global village.

GOPIO Malaysia engages Academic Forums, International Conventions, Local and International Business Delegations, Entrepreneurs Recognition Award and facilitates PIO Scholorships.

We have moved into the second decade of the new millenium. It is a new exciting era of interaction and networking. The dynamics of globalization will impact the social, cultural and economic aspects. Through effective network, the PIOs can face the challenges of the changing world collectively and reap the benefits from economical, educational and cultural activities.

And further, collectively as a Diaspora, the PIOs shall synergize with the huge economic growth of India.

We welcome you to join in this International effort. GOPIO Malaysia is focused on facilitating Malaysians within the PIO Diaspora and with India for socio and economic benefits. GOPIO Business Conferences are one of the main means for these facilities.
