US minister in Delhi to build on 'optimistic' relations with India
This is an optimistic time for India-US relations, said US Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo, who is scheduled to travel to India this week.
Ahead of her visit to India, Raimondo said: "This is an optimistic time for US-India relations, and I am excited to visit India during such a special time of year, the celebration of Holi," according to the statement released by the US Department of Commerce.
"Through the CEO Forum, the Commercial Dialogue, and IPEF, we are making excellent progress in bringing our countries closer together by creating new markets for trade, expanding those that already exist, and reinforcing our shared commitment to democracy," she added.
Raimondo will visit India from March 7 to March 10 on the invitation of Piyush Goyal, Indian Minister of Commerce and Industry, Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution and Textiles.
During the visit, she will participate in the Indo-US Commercial Dialogue and CEO Forum which will be held on March 10 2023. The Commercial Dialogue is a cooperative undertaking encompassing regular government-to-government meetings to be held in conjunction with private sector meetings, with an aim to facilitate trade and maximize investment opportunities across a broad range of economic sectors.
