The Global Organisation of People of Indian Origin or GOPIO welcomes you to GOPIO’s International network of people of Indian origin (PIO). GOPIO Malaysia is the local Country Chapter of GOPIO International.

GOPIO is a global organization with chapters globally such as in UK, USA, Mauritius, Malaysia, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Nepal, Pakistan, Australia, Canada, Singapore and etc.

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 24 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.

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.

Further, GOPIO’s global efforts are implemented locally through the relevant PIO sister organizations.
